For 35 years, Trail Creek has been outfitting your free time. Whether it has been a bucket list trip to the Serengeti, a hike in the First State National Park or a backyard barbeque, you have trusted us to provide you with the right product. Many of you probably bought your first pair of hiking shoes from us or your first fleece. However, in this day of 24/7 online ordering, we need to do more. Great product is not enough.
Trail Creek Outfitters is more than a store. Our staff can recommend the jacket that will keep you dry in the Scottish Highlands, the running shoe that will give you traction on that climb in our run series or the shirt that will keep the bugs and sun away on your kayak in the Keys. We can tell you if those pants make you look great (or not). And we will always greet you with a smile. Good service is rare today and we like to think we are the exception. However, it is still not enough.
To truly be more than a store, we must give back to the community in which we live. We think it is vital to support local organizations that align with our values. Our 5-race trail run series has raised tens of thousands of dollars for open space, children in danger, nature education, college scholarships and handicapped empowerment.
We are celebrating the 11th Anniversary of our Wild and Scenic Film Festival that in past years has raised over $100, 000 for The Land Conservancy for Southern Chester County and the Stroud Water Research Center. These are just the big ones. There have been countless donations for schools, scout troops, animal welfare, conservation and disease prevention to name just a few.
Kennett is such a great community and we are proud to be a part of it. That’s why we started 1% for Kennett, where we donate 1% of every sale to a non-profit of our choice.
Since September, 2017, when we opened our doors in Kennett Square, we have donated a significant amount of money because of your generous support to Kennett Food Cupboard. Our next non-profit to benefit will be Camp Dreamcatcher.
Plus: When you buy a Bike Local Kennett Tee, $2 from each t-shirt goes to Bike Kennett.
None of this would have been possible without your loyalty to us. We want to thank you for supporting Trail Creek Outfitters and hope that you know that when you purchase something from us you are purchasing more than an item. Your dollars are being paid forward to make our little neck of the woods a better place. Thank you for 35 great years.
