Bear Attack Survivor Leads Sportsman’s Warehouse Grand Opening 8/16/18
Expert survival tips, giveaways, kid’s fish pond, and more await at 111 Ranch Dr., Milpitas, CA
Midvale, Utah – August 6, 2018 – How do you survive a bear attack, catch the biggest bass or salmon, get the best hiking boots, and more? Find out when Sportsman’s Warehouse (NASDAQ:SPWH), www.sportsmanswarehouse.com, opens its new location at 111 Ranch Drive, Milpitas, CA August 16-18th. With giveaways, doorbuster sales, expert demonstrations, kids’ activities, and more, it’s a fun event for the entire family. Plus, you can meet the new store manager who has first-hand knowledge on how to survive a bear attack.
“Customers celebrating our grand opening in Milpitas will enjoy the everyday low prices, knowledgeable associates, high-quality products, and easy in-and-out convenience we are known for plus special events, discounts and unique expert insights,” states Jon Barker, Sportsman’s Warehouse (SW) President and CEO. “For example, Alex Machado, store manager, has not only been with the company for seven years, but he is a bear-attack survivor who can provide first-hand safety tips customers won’t get anywhere else. He’ll be available to answer questions at the grand opening and offer future survival seminars, too.”
Firearm units, on a same-store sales basis, increased 14.9 percent, while firearm revenue increased 17.5 percent on a same-store sales basis for the first quarter. The growth marked “a significant improvement from the fourth quarter, largely driven by an increase in traffic as a result of recent policy changes by our competitors,” CEO Jon Barker said on Thursday morning’s earnings call with analysts.
Beginning with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, 8/16/18 customers can:
- Meet the Milpitas Mayor, Richard Tran, members of the Chamber of Commerce and local star vocalist, Holly Geiger (who will be visiting from her role as the Redding, CA SW Office Manager to sing The National Anthem and sign autographs immediately afterward);
