MANCHESTER, Conn., April 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Eastern Mountain Sports, one of the nation's largest outdoor retailers, will host a grand opening of a larger store in Manchester, CT on April 27-29. Located next to PetSmart in the Plaza at Buckland Hills, the 18,831 square foot space is nearly three times the size of the former location in the same shopping complex.
"This move was made possible entirely by our loyal customers in Manchester and the surrounding areas," said Will Manzer, CEO of Eastern Mountain Sports. "The people in this community have supported this location for over 15 years and we're thrilled to provide them with an upgraded shopping experience with more gear to choose from." The new Manchester location will feature a new section for kids, an expanded kayak and stand up paddle board department, as well as a larger full-service bike shop. These improvements complement an extensive selection of outdoor apparel and gear for backpacking, camping, climbing and hiking.
