Tent & Trails Will Close Temporarily

When I saw the signs proclaiming everything inside Tent & Trails to be 50% off—an escalation of the 35% off sale—I was concerned, to say the least. And, indeed, the store is closing… but only on a temporary basis. The construction of 19 Park Place next door evidently caused structural damage to 21 Park Place, and as a result, the building has to be given a new underpinning (no small project in a 100-year-old edifice). This would explain why the building is no longer listed for sale.

There’s no word on when the store will close—or when it will reopen—so stop in soon and stock up on outdoors gear. UPDATE: Neighbor says the store is closing June 4, which is this coming Monday.



  1. They are closing June 4th.
    Thanks for the explanation, Erik, as the response to me was unclear rather, was a mumbled reference to construction from the building next door.

  2. Oh NOOOOO!!!!! this is awful! my favorite hiking store! Are they REALLY reopening at some point? Too bad i was not here when it was about to close!
    To me, losing Tents and Trails would be the worse of all economic-crise related closings, and amazon/related overtaking of brink and mortar local stores.In the past, I have purchased my Granite Gear replacement backpack and other expensive stuff from them even when I could find it cheaper online BECAUSE I wanted them to stay!
