Cooks might cry, outdoorsy folks may rejoice: Columbia Sportswear has finally opened its Performance Fishing Gear concept store at The Falls, and its taken over the old Crate & Barrel space. (The store had been there for over 19 years).
The store, which opened on July 25th, carries your next favorite go-to fishing shirt and vest, plus outdoorsy swim trunks and shorts, tees, and shoes you'll need to brave the open seas. There are even ladies dresses, in case you want to keep it classy on the water. There's even a knot tying station, plus more digital goodness to keep you entertained as the fishing folks in your family fan out over bait, tackle, and plenty of shirt pockets.
To celebrate the grand opening, Columbia will be giving away a Mako 18 LTS fishing boat to one lucky customer. All you have to do is snap a photo of the boat parked outside the store and use the hashtag #ColumbiaPFGSweepstakes and #ShopTheFalls. On the off chance you already have a fishing boat, you can also enter to win a fishing getaway with two nights stay at Resorts World Bimini, or a fishing lesson from George Poveromo, the world famous angler. The contest ends on September 3rd.
