TUCSON, AZ - Local outdoor retailer Summit Hut is proud to announce the opening of a new Speedway location on Monday, September 28th with a two day Grand Opening Celebration to follow on Saturday, October 10th and Sunday, October 11th. Summit Hut will be relocating our Speedway store to the new location at 5251 E. Speedway Blvd. (between Rosemont and Craycroft) approximately a half mile east of the existing Speedway location.
The current Speedway store will remain open until the move, which will take place overnight after a 3pm closing time on September 27th.
The new location is currently being renovated to transform the 22,960 square foot space into a premier shopping experience for customers, including 40% more retail floor space, improved parking and specialty shops offering additional selection from top brands like Marmot, Mountain Hardwear and prAna among others. Photo opportunities are available upon request throughout the renovation process.
The Grand Opening Celebration will kick off with an open to the public Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Saturday, October 10th at 8:50 a.m. with guest of honor Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild. Other Grand Opening highlights scheduled for October 10th include a free pair of Leki Legacy Trekking Poles for the first 100 customers, Happy Hour from 4pm-6:30pm with complimentary beer presented by the Arizona Trail Association, and $10 Gift Cards with each purchase over $50. On Sunday customers will enjoy 20% off of the entire store from 9am-noon. Throughout the weekend there will be over $1,000 in raffle prizes given away each day, as well as food, presentations, flash discounts and brand representatives.
Summit Hut's Speedway move will be the company's second in the last three years, after relocating from Wetmore and First Ave. to 7745 N. Oracle Rd. (just north on Ina) in July of 2013. Last fall Summit Hut also launched a completely re-designed SummitHut.com with a sleek new look, responsive design and simpler checkout for use on devices of all sizes for the extensive selection of over 70,000 products online.
A full schedule of Grand Opening events will be available to the public at www.SummitHut.com or by calling (520) 325-1554.
