“This co-branded store is an innovative new concept for us, and we’re excited to celebrate its opening with our loyal customers and the Westminster community,” explained Greg Sullivan, Chief Operating Officer of Vail Resorts Retail. 
 
“We have so much more to offer than just traditional retail,” continued Sullivan, “beyond the convenience of shopping for winter and summer outdoor gear on a year round basis, this new flexible design allows us to adapt the amount of space dedicated to products and services to match seasonal demands.”
 
During the spring and summer months, a larger portion of the space will be allocated for cycling products and accessories along with equipment for summer activities and recreation, while “off season” equipment and clothing for the cooler months will be available in the smaller space. In fall and winter, the space allocation will reverse to allow for a larger percentage of the store to showcase skis, snowboards, and other winter gear, with a smaller space dedicated to equipment for warm weather activities.  
 
Beyond retail, the shared space will continue to offer the type of year-round, customized services that long-time shoppers have come to value, including bike tuning, custom boot fitting, ski and snowboard tuning, ski and snowboard demos, as well as the Junior Trade Program for kids’ skis, snowboards and bikes.
 
“A Grand Opening event is a great way for us to meet our neighbors in the Westminster community.  Additionally, it provides an opportunity for us to better understand the products and services that our customers find to be most valuable, so that we can continue innovating and reimagining the customer experience in our store,” concluded Sullivan.
