Alpine Accessories is a growing specialty shop focused on skiing, snowboarding, cross country skiing and winter fun. We carry ski and snowboard equipment for beginner to experts, technical ski and snowboard clothing as well as fur boots and boot heaters, and accessories. There is an in-store service department for doing ski and snowboard repairs and a quick turnaround that make Alpine Accessories different than other shops. We educate the customer, offer excellent friendly service, at a competitive price.
This summer, the vacant unit next to the store was purchased and the wall between the two units was torn down doubling the size of the store. Then, a new paint job, new ceiling and new carpet installed. It was cramped before but now customers will be able move around and see more merchandise. With the additional space, many new brands have been brought in this season. And for the 2012 summer season, we will introduce the sport of Stand Up Paddle boarding as well as accessories and active travel apparel.
Last season we saw many people who have not participated in skiing for many years and got back into the sport with their family. Parents like our seasonal rentals for their growing kids. So many customers took advantage of the seasonal rentals that we ran out last season. But with more space, we were able to increase our rentals by 25%.
Our rental equipment is well serviced. All rental service is documented for each piece of equipment. Rental equipment consists of Rossignol skis, bindings & boots along with Flow Snowboards, bindings and boots. Last season we brought new Flow Snowboard with rocker, Flow rear entry bindings and Flow boots with the BOA system. The BOA system makes it easier customers to put on and remove their boots.
Alpine Accessories belongs to the Nation’s Best Sports buying group. This allows us to purchase products at the same low prices as the big box stores. But what we do better is bring in unique items and a wide variety of each category. Where the big box may only have 6 different goggles, we have over 40 goggle models to choose from. Big box stores normally carry only beginner to intermediate equipment, but at Alpine Accessories, you will find gear for beginners to experts and for tots to seniors. We also sell our products on our website www.AlpineAccessories.com .
New product for this season has arrived and put out in the new showroom. We’re ready for the snow.
