Moosejaw is opening a second store in downtown Birmingham, in the former Backcountry North location at 284 W. Maple, which will focus on equipment such as bicycles in the summer and snowboards and ski equipment in the winter months.
Moosejaw, located at 34288 Woodward Avenue, in the Papa Joe's plaza, is staying in that location, where is has been for years, selling outdoor, camping, backpacking, hiking, biking and activewear clothing, shoes, jackets, accessories and snowboards.
“We're not going to close,” said a manager when called.
The store on W. Maple will be a specialty store based on hard goods, such as bikes in the spring and summer, and snowboards and ski equipment and accessories in colder months.
“It's a little bit of a gear shop,” the manager said.
Moosejaw carries The North Face, Arc'teryx, Marmot, Fjall Raven, Bogner, Patagonia, and many other brands.
They are aiming to open in the second or third week of April.
