Taming a wild planet requires an interstellar matador and a willingness to rub the troposphere's nose in carpets soiled with hail. Domesticate the earth in style and comfort with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of merchandise at Moosejaw, available at six Michigan locations: Ann Arbor, Birmingham, East Lansing, Grosse Pointe, Partridge Creek, and Rochester Hills. Today's Groupon is not valid for online orders.
Founded by two wilderness guides in 1992, Moosejaw has merged an Everest-sized variety of top-flight outdoor goods with thoughtful, friendly service, leading CityVoters to name the retailer the Best Outdoor Apparel store for two years running. Beloved brands such as The North Face, Patagonia, Mountain Hard Wear, Marmot, and Arc'teryx decorate the walls, and Moosejaw's own product line has fanatics worldwide. Outfit a summer surfing trip with some funky boardshorts ($19.99–$59) and some Hyperflex Mesh gloves ($23.95) to ensure maximum tread when open-face slapping disorderly waves. There's an extensive array of footwear to pacify and protect your lower paws. Lace haters and hip Dutch tulip farmers can slip on the snug Merrell clogs ($70). Moosejaw's glut of gear covers a wide range of activities, from snowboarding and rock climbing to indoor sunglassing and extreme strollering.
Moosejaw's slogan is "Love the Madness," and each well-traveled and friendly staff member can guide you through the evergreen forest of merchandise if you're lost or if a rabid canoe barks in your direction.
Moosejaw's awards include Best Outdoor Apparel, 2010, Best Outdoor Apparel, 2009, #4 Best Sporting Goods, 2009, and #3 Best Sporting Goods, 2008.
