Outdoor Magazine, the must have trade resource for the outdoor recreation industry, has again named Diamond Brand Outdoors to its annual Top 100 Retailers list. This a direct reflection of our outstanding team of experts and amazing customers who’ve supported us since we first opened in 1964.

“Despite the growing popularity of digital storefronts, outdoor specialty remains a cultural hub for communities, offering a strong mix of product expertise and local insights,” according to Outdoor Magazine Publisher Raimondo Forlin. “Good specialty retailers don’t just sell gear, they inspire people to actually go outside and use it.”

We are passionate about helping you enjoy Western North Carolina whether you’re on the trail or on the town. As a local, family-owned operation, we’re able to focus on what works best for our friends and neighbors. When our team isn’t enjoying the outdoors, they’re keeping up-to-date on the latest trends and technologies through weekly training, hosting in-store clinics and workshops on a variety of topics, and building lasting relationships with happy customers.

Like our motto — “Adventure is Local” — we believe in supporting our community and look for new ways to explore our corner of the world every day. Recently, we’ve partnered with customers to collect coats for ABCCM, donate socks to Homeward Bound, fill a kayak with food for MANNA FoodBank, and raise funds for the Diana Wortham Theatre.

Thanks to Outdoor Magazine for this recognition and thanks to you for your support!
