First Thursdays at Shep’s: Dog Days of Summer

For August, First Thursdays is celebrating that the “Dog Days of Summer” are upon us, and we couldn’t agree more! We’re thrilled to be spending time on our kayaks, waterskis & bikes because it’s hot and we’re happy! How have you been enjoying the heat?

This Thursday, Shep’s is once again giving you $10 Shep’s Bucks for every $50 you spend, PLUS offering 25% off all spring & summer apparel, shoes, and accessories! With that duo, you really can’t go wrong. Our friends and neighbors throughout downtown are offering their own great specials, and we’re all working with the Humane Society of Marathon County to raise awareness of their pups & hopefully connect some with new homes!

Join us downtown for live music, one-night-only specials & sales, and more from 5pm-8pm this Thursday, August 6th!

Fun things to try on the 4th!

The 4th of July is almost upon us, and with that comes planning to make the most out of summer’s favorite holiday weekend.  But if you’re like many struggling to make old traditions fun year after year, why not give some new activities a try?  There’s tons to do outdoors in the summer in Wisconsin, and Shep’s has all the latest gear to get you on your way to a new favorite outdoor activity.  Here’s a few suggestions:

Disc Golf3

1.  Disc Golf:  There are disc golf courses popping up all around Wisconsin, and with the start-up cost so low, people of all ages are heading out to throw some discs.  Shep’s carries hundreds of discs from Discraft, Innova, and Disc Mania along with bags and other accessories to get new players started and seasoned players restocked.

You can find a local course here –> https://www.discgolfscene.com/courses/Wisconsin

biking2.  Biking:  With hundreds of miles of city, country, or forest trails available for biking, Wisconsin is one of the best places to get out on two wheels.  And with bikes for people of all ages and abilities, Shep’s is your biking headquarters.  Comfort, fitness, or mountain bikes – we have it all, and we have all the accessories available too.  Already have a bike?  Our mechanic Pete is here to get your bike running smoothly and safely in time for the 4th of July weekend!

wakeboard23.  Water Sports:  Living in Wisconsin and being on the water go hand in hand, and even if you’re a seasoned water goer, chances are there’s a new activity you’ve yet to try on our beautiful waterways.  Love to kayak?  Why not give stand up paddleboaring a try?  Are you a local pro on a slalom ski?  Wake boarding, wake surfing, and more will give you an awesome new skill to master.  Or if you’re simply heading to the beach for a quick dip, Shep’s has a great line of men’s and women’s swimwear from Prana, Patagonia, Roxy, Quiksilver, United By Blue, Kavu, and more!  Lastly, don’t forget your Sun Bum sunscreen before you hit the water!

Don’t forget to look and feel great this holiday weekend wearing great new apparel for men and women from Patagonia, North Face, United By Blue, Krimson Klover, Prana, Kavu, Toad & Co, and so many more!

Here’s to You, Dad.

Thanks dad, for everything you do for us. Thanks for the memories, for the adventures, for teaching us the little things like how to ride a bike and the big things like how to treat other people. We’re who we are today partially because of you and we want you to know we love you.

Our fathers and father figures deserve a little extra love this Father’s Day and we know just the spot to shop. You’ll find discounts on bikes, water sports, hiking essentials, clothes, shoes, winter toys, and cool accessories he’ll love.  Show him how much you appreciate him. (And treat yourself too, while you’re at it!)
