Wholesale Sports Announces Spokane Grand Opening

SPOKANE, WASHINGTON--(Marketwire - July 11, 2012) - Wholesale Sports Outdoor Outfitters (WSS), one of the Pacific Northwest's largest retailers of hunting, fishing and camping gear announced the grand opening of its Spokane store at its new location in the NorthTown mall at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, July 20, 2012.

"We're extremely excited to open the doors at our new location and show our customers the new look of Wholesale Sports in Spokane," said Glenn Bingley, WSS Chief Operating Officer. "We've made significant changes to the look and feel of our store that make it more consistent with the Wholesale Sports brand and create a much better shopping experience for our customers."

According to Bingley, the grand opening weekend will feature outstanding deals on hunting, fishing and camping gear all through the store. "We've been gearing up for this grand opening event for a long time. This is the first store in the US that we have converted to the new format and we really want to make it a celebration - prices this weekend will reflect that. In addition to the sale pricing and some great door crasher specials we'll also have over $20,000 of giveaways and draws throughout the weekend."

"Our Spokane Valley location was closed at the end of June in anticipation of this grand opening at our new NorthTown location," explained Bingley. "We've had people working almost round the clock since mid-April. Everyone - our store associates, our merchandising team, the contractor and trades people, our vendor partners -- has worked really hard and pulled together to get us ready for this grand opening. Needless to say, we're all really thrilled to see it come together."

Grand opening events will continue throughout the weekend. Regular store hours are 9:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. Monday - Saturday and 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. on Sundays.
