    Question Sierra Trading Post

    So I've been a pretty frequent customer of STP over the years, especially now that we have a brick and mortar store in our area. Honestly though the last year or so I have not bought as much, partially because they out a lot of promos and I just have enough stuff.

    I went to the store today to look for something specific. I had not been into the store since December. I was pretty disappointed to see that their technical outerwear section was limited to about eight hardshell jackets on a rack. They've been open two years now and always had TONS of outerwear--fleece, puffies, hardshells, softshells, etc.

    If anything, it looked like a glorified TJ Maxx, who owns them. They had TONS of casual shirts and pants. Lots of no-name brands. No real hardgoods for outdoor recreation.

    Maybe it was seasonal, maybe a lull, but for those that have a store or frequent their site, are they down on outerwear and other outdoor gear? That was their bread and butter. If I want casual or athleisure I will go to TJ Maxx.

    Just wondering.....

    I know their website is sucking compared to two or three years ago.

    Yep. I wonder if that was strategic or because manufacturers are not selling to them (or making less "overstock").

    I too have noticed a decline in "serious" mountain stuff carried by STP.

    I was in the one in Sandy, UT in mid-August, the one in Burlington, VT on September 1st, and the one in Hanover, NJ last weekend, and my impressions were all the same. Hopefully it's just off-season and this will change. The woman in the NJ store told me that the last week or September or the first week of October they'd be getting lots of ski stuff in, so hopefully that occurs. She said they had just received baselayers & goggles as of last week, but hadnt put them out yet.
