Today we have a little bit of a different guest post as we highlight another great company dedicated to helping people find gear that fits them and their outdoor lifestyle. While St. Bernard Sports is far from us here in the West (with stores located in Texas), they do have an online shop. I love getting a glimpse of outdoor life beyond my own familiar settings here in our area of the country, and so I invited SBS to answer some questions and tell a little more about who they are. They are way more than an online store front (and I think their answers will help show you why.)
Any Southwest readers that have personally made it into St. Bernard Sports? I would love to hear your experiences with them!
Make sure to read all the way to the end of the post to link up to some gear reviews we did thanks to SBS AND (even better) a giveaway for a $100 gift card to their shop.
Can you tell our readers a little bit about who St. Bernard Sports is as a company and who you cater to? (when began, where store locations are, etc.)
St. Bernard Sports has been one of the Southwest’s premier ski & snowboard specialty shops since 1978. We started our Dallas, TX shop with an unparalleled effort on customer service and continue to make that our main focus today. We have grown to have 2 store locations in Dallas and one in Austin, TX. In addition to a fantastic selection of snowsports equipment and apparel, we also offer an outstanding line of footwear and fashion apparel for life in Texas.
Do you do the majority of your sales online or in your stores?
The majority of our sales take place in our stores, but St. Bernard Sports has dedicated significant resources to growing its online web presence and sees great opportunity ahead. Being able to draw inventory from our several brick and mortar stores means that St. Bernard Sports is poised to offer a large selection of products at great prices while offering unmatched product knowledge and customer service. The ease of use and availability of our website means that customers can find a great deal 24/7.
What is your top-selling brand/item?
The North Face Women’s Osito Jacket has always been a favorite of our customers, whether for personal use or as a gift. It’s a lightweight yet warm zip up fleece jacket that is suitable for fall or winter wear. Since it comes in a wide variety of cool colors, it’s easy to find a style that a relative, significant other or friend will enjoy. We also sell large amounts of items that are exclusive to St. Bernard Sports from brands such as Southern Tide and Vineyard Vines.
We’re finally heading into fall here in the mountains out west. Any top-picks for cold weather that you have? (Men, Women and Kids)
We are particularly excited about the new Canada Goose Hybridge line. These men’s and women’s jackets, vests and hoodies feature warm down filling and lightweight shells, and best of all they are fully adjustable to help you keep out the cold.
