In conjunction with the revitalization of the town core and associated improved pedestrian access, Christy Sports is excited to make Avon the location for its second Signature Store.
LAKEWOOD, Colo. – MAY 9, 2014. Christy Sports, today, announces plans for a comprehensive renovation of its Avon Store. Construction will begin in early June, with project completion expected at the beginning of November.
Christy Sports has been a staple in Avon since 1986, and the upcoming store renovation will provide community members with one of the largest, most well-appointed full service ski shops in the Vail Valley. The remodeled Signature Store will provide 8,800 square feet of retail space, which amounts to a 45% increase in the sales floor. In addition to being larger, the new store will feature a dramatic entrance, large energy efficient windows that provide plenty of natural light, and an open floor plan that enhances the overall shopper experience.
This remodel comes at the same time as the community and local businesses make a concerted push towards revitalizing the town center and improving pedestrian accessibility. “We received such an incredible amount of community support after opening the first Christy Sports Signature Store in Boulder last season, and that success makes us very excited to provide the same unrivaled customer experience in the Vail Valley,” said Hugh O’Winter, Director of Real Estate for Christy Sports.
Due to the large scope of the remodel, the Christy Sports in Avon is currently closed in preparation for construction which begins in June. However, in order to continue to provide the Vail Valley with quality patio furniture, the Christy Sports in Beaver Creek will be open for summertime operations. Opening on May 24thfrom 10am to 6pm daily and located at 26 Avondale Lane, the Beaver Creek Christy Sports will offer high quality outdoor furniture for the duration of the spring and summer.
