Rock/Creek named GOA “Retailer of the Year” for 2nd time in 3 years

Today, we’re proud to announce that we’ve been selected as the Grassroots Outdoor Alliance’s 2013 “Retailer of the Year.” This is the second time we’ve received this unique award — voted upon by the outdoor clothing and gear manufacturers whose products we offer! — in a three-year span.

Look, we live in a world full of Wal-Marts and Amazons, and that’s what Rock/Creek is here for. We actually USE the gear we sell, and we’re here to share that expertise with you to make sure you end up with quality gear that keeps you comfortable and lasts a long time.

We’re also the local experts who help build and maintain singletrack, who organize first-class trail running events and raise money for those trail systems. We know which SUP board best suits your needs, and which trail running shoe is best for rainy spring training on Signal Mountain, and which routes at Foster Falls are the most fun!

All this hardware is starting to pile up. From the press release:

Rock/Creek adds this latest award to a growing list of recognition from within and without the outdoor industry, including: STELLAService ELITE in 2013 for outstanding customer service, Internet Retailer’s Second 500 list for 2011-2013, Backpacker Magazine/SNEWS “Retailer of the Year” online for 2009, and the Better Business Bureau’s Accredited Business rating of A+ in 2013. The online store at is consistently rated highly by Bizrate and other online review sites.

Thanks to all of you, our customers, and the vendors who voted for us to receive this award. We’ll see you on the trails.
