Robbie and I walked by the newly opened The Gear ReSource ("New, used, & consignment outdoor gear & apparel") store at 200 Division St last weekend and saw proprietors Nicole and Robert Stai trying to decide where to put the stencils on their window. After giving them our advice ("lower!"), we got a tour of their attractive store, nibbled on some gorp, played with their friendly and well-behaved dogs, Sampson & Dakota, and bought a day-hike backpack.
This store is a great addition to downtown Northfield and to have local owners who are well-informed and walk the talk is pretty cool.
The Gear ReSource is one of several sponsors of Saturday’s mud run, The Knights’ Gauntlet "… a 4-mile obstacle course race through the Carleton College Arboretum, held on Saturday, September 22nd, 2012."
