Dear Out There Adventure Centre customer,

 

It is with great regret and sadness that we have been forced to permanently close our doors at the Out There Adventure Centre.

 

In short, we were unable to survive the current economy in downtown Calgary. Though our suppliers have been supportive these last months, we were ultimately unable to renegotiate a rental rate with our landlord that reflected the current retail reality.

 

In the end, despite our best efforts to weather this historic economic downturn, we have been forced to close.

 

Promoting the active outdoor lifestyle in Calgary was not only our mission—it has been our pleasure. It has been an honour to offer the great gear we curated to thousands of valued Out There Adventure Centre customers including yourself. We sincerely appreciated your business and would like to thank you for shopping with us.

 

We consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have had the privilege of working alongside the amazing staff who turned the lights on 364 days a year for 14 years. They warmed up the space with their knowledge of gear and deep passion for getting outside. Many of you spoke highly of their efforts and we would like to recognize them for their time and dedication.

 

Thank you again – our customers – for your support over the years.

 

Your Out There Adventure Centre Team,
Tyler, Jamie, George, Darrell et al…
