  • State Of The Union, Ashland Outdoor Store Style, September 7, 2018

    or... "Times May Change, But Core Values Should Not"

    The Ashland Outdoor Store has been around a long time. Everyone reading this, and the store too, has come a long way since then. The world has changed, our politics have changed, the retail landscape has changed, new alliances have formed in Europe, China is an economic juggernaut and almost everything we sell is made in or has parts or materials that come from China, Mexico, Vietnam or India - among others!

    But one important thing has not changed - our Core Values. I am writing this because I believe we have a unique and powerful community of people who love the outdoors for many reasons. We don't have to share the exact same reasons in order to want the same things around us - namely an open and accessible outdoor backyard that we can enjoy. Continue reading [Read More]
