Gorge News, Specials and Events
Gorge Garage Sale & Swap! We all should do a little spring cleaning every 30 years. Gorge is doing just that on April 19th when we attempt to thin a little inventory from all departments, much of it closeout items or used gear, in garage sale fashion outside under tents between the buildings. We're also inviting YOU to sell some of your own gear (snow, surf, SUP, sail, skate...) that you're ready to part with - commission free! Many of you probably remember our annual swap meets in the windsurfing hayday. You sell some, you buy some. Definitely bargains to be had! So it's time to channel your inner thrift store bargain hunting (and selling) self and join us on Saturday, April 19 starting at 9:00 a.m. We'll wrap up the swap portion of the sale around noon, while the garage sale, and one day only in-store specials will be on till close at 7:00 pm.
