At Trail Creek Outfitters, we strive to be More Than A Store.
When you come in our doors, we learn your name, and we work with you to understand what you need. Many of you have become our friends and we are thankful for our loyal customers. When you are looking for a particular item, our friendly staff work their hardest to give you attentive service because they care. They care about you, and they care about getting you the best products to meet your needs.
For our staff, this is the fun part, because they have the best product knowledge in the area. We can do the homework for you, with products already curated for our area and climate so you get the best gear that you need.
Because we are a small, independent, local business, our tax dollars stay right here in Southeastern PA. More than that, we are a part of this community, and care deeply about our neighbors and our environment. We sponsor a Trail Run Series that raised over $60,000 last year alone. Our Annual Wild and Scenic Film Festival has raised over $100,000 for land conservation and clean water. This is on top of the many smaller donations that we provide locally. We are proud to give back to local causes that are important to us and to you, and we are proud to call this place home.
From all of us at Trail Creek Outfitters, thank you for your continued support!
From season to season, you can rely on Trail Creek Outfitters to bring you the best that the outdoor industry has to offer. We’re here with all your gear no matter what adventure you’re about to take on.
