Boulder Army Store
For more than 35 years, Boulder Army Store has sold its customers one thing: adventure. Behind its 19th-century brick storefront, the store stocks all the requisite apparel and gear needed for outdoor exploration. Its knowledgeable staff outfits customers for year-round thrills with outdoor gear, clothing, and footwear for all seasons from brands such as Merrell and Columbia Sportswear. In fact, some of the store's items almost seem to have minds of their own, since they can adjust for different temperatures or even generate electricity.
The shelves and walls also brim with camping equipment and gear designed for specific activities, including backpacking, kayaking, and rock climbing. For summer months, more than 200 styles of footwear keep outdoorsy types protected as they scale hiking trails or levitate just a few inches above rough terrain.
