For a lot of us, March is that lost month. We’re enjoying the best skiing of the season while looking forward to Spring Break on the beach or warm days at the lake or on the trail.
At Shepherd & Schaller you don’t have to choose which season to celebrate and plan for. All March long you’ll get end-of-the-season clearance prices on our remaining ski and snowboard equipment and 25-70% off winter outerwear and sportswear. At the same time, enjoy 20% off retail price on select water ski, wakeboard, bike, tennis, camping and paddling gear and new summer fashions, yoga, swim and footwear.
You decide. Is it our best post-season sale or pre-season sale of the year? We’re here to help you make the most of your time in store and out.
The weekend is almost upon us: when tents cover the parking lots, when racks line the sidewalks, and deals are all around. We’ve been doing sidewalk sales for nearly 65 years & we hope you’ll join us again this year to score some of the biggest deals of the year. Prices are never lower!
We’ll have a tent, a sidewalk, and a store FULL of deals. We’re talking up to 90% off summer & winter apparel, (absolute minimum of 50% off ski & snowboard outerwear!), 30-50% off new summer clothing & footwear, 40% off snowboard equipment and 50% off alpine ski equipment, killer deals on bikes, tubes, waterskis & wakeboards, camp supplies & accessories, and more.
Join us for Wausau’s Big Weekend! Just a couple of days away!
What does the 4th of July look like for you & your family? Maybe it’s a sunny day on the lake or a relaxing day in the cabin, fireworks, sunshine, or cookouts. With warm & sunny weather arriving by July (this year, much sooner!), and lake temps comfortable to play in, you’ll need some summer toys. Here’s the thing: July 4th is when the party happens, so you need to prepare BEFORE then! Stop in now and get your gear!
We’ll set you up with anything you need for behind the boat: tubes for the family, wake boards, water skis, wake surfs, or wake skates; completed with life vests, ropes & accessories.
Like water, but prefer to be your own motor? This might be the year to get those kayaks (singles or tandems). Not much beats a day of paddling on a peaceful lake (or for you adrenaline junkies – a river of rapids), and when’s a better time than the present?
If it sounds more fun to spend the weekend roaming the streets of Minocqua, we can help you there too. We have dresses, skirts, denim, tanks, tees, flip flops, purses, and more that will give you something to strut about. Want to bike around? Even better! We can help there too.
If you’re a camping family, look no farther. We can pack your bags with the gear you’ll need to have the best time possible. Need a tent, sleeping bag, hiking shoes & poles, cookware or bug repellant? We have it all, and more.
And, if you’re traveling with your kayaks, bikes, water sports equipment, or just extra luggage, be sure to stop in early to talk about fitting your car with a Yakima rack to carry your toys. We’ll order each part you need for your specific car year, make, and model. It doesn’t take long for it to arrive, but it does take a little forward thinking!
Celebrate the long weekend in whichever way you choose, but be sure you’re ready to make it memorable. Our knowledgable outdoor-loving team can answer any questions you have, give their expert opinion about gear or destinations, and be sure you’re set for the fun.
Did you come here for inspiration? A small gift or a big one? You know we’ve got Wausau’s largest selection of ski and snowboard gear, bikes, tennis, camping and waterspouts. But we’ve got other great gifts that wrap up in small packages and require only small budgets too:
Man-Cans Ahhh, the scent of Bacon. Or Grandpa’s Pipe, a Leather Mitt, Fresh Cut Grass, Sawdust, Fresh Brewed Coffee, Campfire, Gunpowder or Hot Chocolate (to name a few.) There’s nothing girly about scents that do more than just smell good.
Man-Cans are made inside a real soup can. The can is donated to a soup kitchen and when it’s been cleaned and returned, the label is removed and the can is filled with manly scented natural wax. When you buy a Man-Can you’re helping feed people who need a little extra help. All thanks to a 13-year-old with a unique idea. And dad likes good smells as much as mom. $11.50
Kuhl Clothes Does Dad like to look cool? Or is it Hot? Or even sick? Whatever, he will look and feel good in duds from Kühl®, where the passion remains to get outdoors and have fun. Kühl® is what it means to be comfortable and relaxed in the challenging environment of life and sport. For Kühl®, this dedication to original thinking translates into excellence in design and exceptional construction because they use not only innovative style and features, but exclusive fabrics with unique weaves and vintage washes that create authentic character. Articulated, gusseted, precise designs as well as the utmost craftsmanship provide a fit that is pure comfort. Wearing Kühl® not only represents the freedom of movement but also free will. Dad will love their long and short-sleeved shirts, fleece and wool sweaters and great outerwear in addition to their well known pants. Every man looks good in Kuhl. Starting at $45.
Does dad have a lot to juggle? How about a great day pack, with a lifetime warranty to boot. Dozens by The North Face, Patagonia, Dakine and Burton are in stock. Starting at $45
How about a round of Disc Golf? This is a sport everyone can love. There are usually no greens fees, you can dress down, and most courses have no pro shop, no marshal, no tee times, and feel much more like what they are: a public park where people can come, go, and do as they please. Of course ‘golf etiquette’ is practiced just like ball golf, which makes for a pleasant outing for everyone involved. Pick up a disc and give it a spin and you’re on your way. Shepherd & Schaller stocks hundred’s of Innova and Discraft golf discs each spring. Starting at $8.99
Sock it to him. Smartwool socks are a gift he’ll really love. At the heart of these great socks is the highest quality merino yarn available from sheep raised in the most amazing places on earth. Skillfully woven in the American Southeast, the world’s best performance socks are Made in the USA. Dad will like that too. Read more here and fall in love with Smartwool even more. Starting at $14.95. (By 3 Get 1 Free June 1-15, 2014)
Got a little healthier budget?Recreational Kayaking. If you have access to a local lake, stream or river and can sit and move your arms, you can kayak. Sport kayaking is a relaxing way to spend a day outside. The crew at Shep’s can help you decide what kind of boat is right for your goals and the water you expect to be on, and can recommend a PFD (personal flotation device otherwise known as a life jacket) that is specifically designed for paddling. Don’t forget the paddle – or dad will be up a creek in no time! Recreational boats from Perception are incredibly stable, so rolling is not usually an issue. Many models are designed for fishing, so dad wins again. Boats begin at $399. And be a sport. Get him some Sun Bum Pro sunscreen too. Starting at $3.99
Visit us in Downtown Wausau, Wisconsin or online at www.shepssports.com to shop for Bike, Camping, Tennis, Water Ski and Snow Sports departments too, along with a great selection of clothes from Patagonia, The North Face, Kavu, Smartwool and lots more. Dad’s worth it.
