LAKEWOOD — Christy Sports has announced the launch of Big Agnes’ camping department in the newly remodeled store in Avon.
The newly remodeled Christy Sports store added a camping department in order to better serve Vail Valley locals and destination camping enthusiasts. The store will still carry quality outdoor furniture, but now, as part of a new partnership with Big Agnes, Christy Sports will also offer a complete selection of camping and outdoor gear.
‘Passion for the Outdoors’
“Big Agnes and Christy Sports are both rooted in Colorado and share a passion for the outdoors, so this partnership is a perfect fit,” said Jeff Evans, area manager for Christy Sports.
Big Agnes, a leading outdoor gear manufacturer based in Steamboat Springs, has been developing gear since 2001.
“We are really excited to be teaming up with a specialty Colorado retailer that understands merchandising and customer service like Christy Sports,” said Bill Gamber, Big Agnes co-founder. “The Avon store is carrying a wide variety of Big Agnes gear this summer, from insulated jackets to our mtnGLO tents and accessories, which include integrated LED lighting. Backpackers and campers in the Vail Valley will be impressed with Christy’s lineup.”
“Whether you are heading up to Piney Lake for a quick weekend getaway with the kids, or you want to get outfitted for a solo multi-day trip, we have everything you need to head into the hills and have a good time,” Evans said. In addition to tents, pads and bags, Christy Sports also carries Big Agnes apparel, camping tables, cooking utensils and other accessories.
