The Annual Recycler Sale is October 27th!

Once again, RMO is hosting our Recycler Sale on October 27th!

How it works: you bring in your gently used gear for hiking, backpacking, skiing, etc. We sort out a nice price for it, and hold it in the basement until the 27th of October. Then, along with all the other good stuff, we assemble it out back and at 9am, the assembled horde streams in the door to snatch up the deals.

All (that’s right, all 100%) of the money your gear makes comes back to you as store credit to snag those snazzy things you’ve been dreaming about. New gear for you, and your used stuff headed off to a new life elsewhere: does it get any better?

A few notes:

There are some limitations on what we will accept, loosely based around the condition of the equipment and likelyhood that it will sell. Perhaps the best guideline is that, if we sell it here in the shop, then it’s probably fair game. If you’re wondering, just bring it in or give us a call.

Pricing is always a good question when it comes to used gear. A useful way to think about it is this: if you were to come upon the item you’re bringing in, what would you consider a good deal that you couldn’t pass up? Of course, we’re always happy to help.

It’s amazing how much credit a small group of decent gear can amass–the boots or sleeping bag you want get cheaper with everything you can sell.

It’s easy to wait until the end to dig through what you’ve got, but we really appreciate it when it shows up early.

With just over a week to go, we’ve had a really strong showing of gear from the community. Lots of great deals on excellent gear.

Lastly, a dedicated group cooked breakfast out front last year to secure their spot at the front of the line–bravo.
