Not the “How To” that it implies, but does talk about what we, & other cobbles around the country are doing, & how you can get your fix.
Local news channel decided to do a story about the lack of snow affecting winter business at various local outdoor shops. Little did they know that 1. Lea kicks ass at interviews 2. We keep gear going so we aren’t as beholden to trying to clear out last years latest color of jacket. 3. Our customers rock!
Featured in a local business publication, this article interviews are lead cobbler, Luke, & is focused primarily on our shoe repair shop & the downside of cheaply made footwear & outdoor gear.
Local newspaper interviewed the shop for some advice on buying second hand skis & winter gear.
A website dedicated to designing, creating, & crafting did a little write up on a video we posted of one of our apprentices practicing the art of the climbing shoe resole. This video was originally filmed not long after we started doing this. Although he was still learning, we think he did a great job putting this video together. Really gives you some behind the scenes into what goes into a resole (minus all the waiting for glue to dry . . . ).
This was the first article done on our newly added repair shoe & boot repair shop. Originally when someone from the legal journal called, we were a little worried, but turned out they just wanted to see what we were all about. At the time, we were running our repair services & our consignment shop separately, which ended up being a pain so we changed it. We dropped our original shop name, Repeat Performance Sports, & decided to put everything under our new name The Gear Fix!
Nervous as crap during this whole interview. Count the number of times that Josh says “um” & get 10% off your purchase:) That being said THANK YOU MyWindow for thinking of our shop!
We didn’t win or anything, BUT we were a runner-up & we were on the same list as a bunch of HUGE & online businesses. We weren’t even on the list of choices. We made it purely of write-ins. That made us really proud & really humbled at the same time that our little shop in the middle of central Oregon made it on to this list at all. All thanks to our community, locally & beyond.
Buying guide for skis that we were a part of for our local paper.
This was an interview about a business class Josh took when deciding to add our outdoor gear & footwear repair shops. Also features several other great local businesses.
This article was really fun for us. It was the first time someone came talked to us about what we were doing at the shop. This is bio of the business at the time.
