Sacramento Becomes Tactical Gear Destination
Blumenthal’s Uniforms and Equipment opens a 5.11 Tactical Select Store
Sacramento, CA – Blumenthal’s Uniform and Equipment announces the launch of their 5.11 Tactical Select Store opening December 14, 2011. This store is one of only two 5.11 Tactical Select stores in the nation carrying the full line of 5.11 Tactical products offering an interactive shopping experience for tactical gear.
“Our first Select Store in Portland, Oregon has been a real success. 5.11 Tactical products have so many features that consumers want to see, feel and interact with our products,” explains Tom Davin, CEO of 5.11 Tactical.
Blumenthal’s began in Seattle, WA in 1948 by Joe Blumenthal and has grown to 5-stores in the Northwest. Brothers Mitch and Mark Blumenthal along with partner Roger Heldman, have announced a Grand Reopening of their Sacramento store after a remodel and the addition of the full line with over 7,000 product styles from 5.11 Tactical. The Grand Reopening celebration will take place on December 14 at Blumenthal’s, 3133 Arden Way, and will include a gift for the first 25 people in the door each day, prize drawings, snacks, and 20% off all 5.11 Tactical in-store purchases at this location only.
“Our customers love 5.11 Tactical and their new products are always well received,” explains Blumenthal owner Roger Heldman. “5.11 Tactical revolutionized the industry by introducing a whole new ‘tactical wear’ category. Those looking for anything from cargo pants to outerwear to concealed carry clothing will find it right here to test, try on and buy.”
5.11 Tactical products are traditionally sold online and through retail public safety uniform dealers. The shopping experience changed with the opening of the first Signature Store in Fresno, CA in May 2011. Blumenthal’s is only the second store to carry over 7,000 styles offered by 5.11 Tactical and offers a rare opportunity for everyday Americans to see, feel, and purchase products that were originally intended for high-intensity situations.Blumenthal’s is excited to unveil the new store: “Northern California customers will be amazed with our expanded tactical clothing and gear selection, superior customer service and the overall experiential shopping opportunity.”
Truly a catalog come to life, you could walk into the store naked and walk out, equipped head to toe to perform most LE or associated tactical functions. Not to mention, they make a great pair of pants that are well suited for use by those in construction, utilities, and transportation. In fact, if you are hard on your clothes while at work or play, 5.11 is a good choice. Additionally, 5.11 offers a great deal of product for use by military personnel in addition to their new Fire/EMS line. What’s more, they are constantly expanding their product offerings.
Everything you see in their catalog will be available in the store and it is exclusively 5.11. In fact, it’s 2000 square feet of 5.11. The big plus here is that it is in stock; all sizes, all colors and you aren’t going to see any other brands mixed in there.
Nobody what they do for a living, everybody wears shoes or boots. 5.11 has a great cross section of footwear choices that will fit most any need: casual, steel toe, or duty.
What I’ve said here isn’t just some ad. I mean what I say. I remember about seven years ago sitting down with Bob Denny to take a look at what 5.11 was up to. I was already familiar with the pants as I owned a pair or two that were made by Royal Robbins. What impressed me at the time was what this new 5.11 brand was doing to spearhead the development of what eventually became the tactical clothing market. Today, 5.11 continues to impress me as they refine their current of products and delve into new areas, always mindful of how the products will complement one another. They’ve put a lot into this industry and for that they have earned my respect. There are a lot of folks wearing 5.11 and that certainly says something.
The new store is centrally located at 375 Independence Blvd near Virginia Beach’s City Center district. It lies across the street from Pembroke Mall and is right down Independence from Little Creek NAB. Visitors will find easy access from the Independence exit from 264 which also makes it convenient for many local LE agencies.
5.11 Tactical is interested in opening stores in other areas. To learn more talk to your POC at 5.11.
Stop in for their grand opening this Saturday, 4 June and mention that you read about the store on SSD and you will receive a 10% discount. LE and Military receive a regular 5% discount which essentially pays the tax on your purchase.Article and photos from Soldier Systems.
5.11 has just introduced its new Sabre 2.0 jacket. After years of research this new update to the original Sabre will not disappoint.
