Here’s your first opportunity to see behind the tent flaps at our Kirkwood location! Our 20th Annual Spring Swap begins Friday, April 12 at 7 pm; but we’re giving you a first glimpse at what’s already for sale under the big top. Bikes, boats, skis, snowboards, camping gear, footwear and clothing already are filling the tent. (With more to come before Friday!)
One reminder: there is a $5 entrance fee on Friday night in Kirkwood. All other days (Saturday – Monday) are absolutely FREE.
If you have gear or clothing you’d like to enter into the Swap, check-in runs noon – 8 pm on Wednesday and Thursday, April 10-11. There will be no check-in on Friday, April 12.
Spring has finally sprung here in the Midwest. That means the bike shops in our Kirkwood location and in our brand new O’Fallon, Ill., location have kicked into high gear.
Not only does our Spring Swap begin on Friday in Kirkwood and Columbia, Mo., but we also have some big promotions going on from our two main bicycle brands: Specialized and Trek.
Specialized – Only Available for Purchase in Kirkwood
If you’re interested in one of Specialized’s road bikes, take advantage of up to $400 off MSRP on a 2013 Roubaix or Tarmac or up to $500 off a 2013 Ruby as part of Specialized’s Spring Classics Sale Event. This promotion is going on now through Monday, April 22 and features great prices on brand new models – not last year’s clearance models.
Our newest brand, Trek, is offering two Factory Demos this coming weekend, April 13-14. On Saturday, April 13, join us in Castlewood State Park and ride all the new 2013 models to find out which bike is for you. On Sunday, the demo moves to the Lost Valley Trails in Weldon Springs Wildlife Area (Hamburg, Mo.).
If you find a bike you like this weekend, you can save up to $150 with incentives for Trek Days and Demo Days specials.
This is the time of year when bright and shiny new hiking items arrive in the store and we all start dreaming of all the amazing places we could traverse. The West has held it’s strong reputation for being purely magnificent and so many of us have had the opportunity to experience it’s beauty! Alpine Shop’s vision ” Generations Transformed by Discovery Outdoors” is upheld by maintaining our adventure-seeking, outdoor loving staff. We wanted to share some of the insider buzz on a few new items our staff can’t stop thinking about, and would be the perfect addition to your upcoming westward adventure. Everyone loves and needs a new hiking boot and the Vasque Breeze 2.0 is the one that will have you jumping up and down with excitement. As if the original Vasque Breeze wasn’t a perfect Gore-Tex item, they reloaded this boot with all of the necessary bells and whistles. The most amazing part of this boot is that it nearly weighs nothing compared to how much support and strength it has. Metal grommets hold the laces along with the fast drying mesh make this boot a long lasting piece in your closet. Between the 100% waterproof of the Gore-Tex, the Vibram sole and rubber toe, and not to mention how lightweight it’s made, this is a hikers dream. Some of the places featured from Top left to bottom right include Moab, UT, Jenny Lake in Grand Teton National Park, Yosemite Falls, and Mt. Ranier, WA
