As you know if you’ve been following our family posts each week, we put a lot of value on our brand partner’s behind-the-scenes processes and philosophies. To that end we are SUPER excited to welcome PICTURE ORGANIC CLOTHING to Wausau, WI.
These guys are dialed in. From their home in France, they’ve been about 100% recycled and organic materials from the beginning, in 2010. They got their feet under them in Europe and brought their inspiring point of view and styling designs to the USA just a few years ago. The line is exploding and you’ll be proud to be an early adopter. Visit their site. It’s inspiring.
Picture snow sports outerwear is expect in-store in October 2017.
Dungeon Sale is Wausau’s biggest sales event of ski season! If you’re brave enough to head to the basement of our 110+ year-old building, you’ll find crazy good deals on used and new ski and snowboard equipment for the entire family.
Shep’s accepts used gear through October 10 for consignment sale. We help price it unless you know exactly what you want out of it, and keep only 10% consignment fee (when swaps keep 20%). After your used items sell, you’ve got ‘Shep’s Bucks’ store credit to use toward the purchase of any of our products or services.
We set the used gear up alongside our own inventory of new gear (left over from last season) and make it easy by installing ski and snowboard bindings so you only have one price to consider.
Kids gear goes fast, so most years there is a line at the door before our Wednesday morning opening at 9:00am. Have no fear, there is usually enough selection to satisfy shoppers all through the five-day event. The basement is stocked with Alpine Ski, X-C Ski and Snowboard equipment.
You’ll want to shop upstairs too, where the latest 2017-18 gear is also on sale along with the season’s greatest fashions and accessories like helmets, goggles, wax, tuning supplies and more. You can even combine the great used gear you find in the Dungeon with new equipment from upstairs at Shep’s low “package price.” All clothing and accessories are at least 20% off during Dungeon Sale and we’ve got lots of other great specials going on.
To top it off we have crazy deals on shop work, like binding adjustments or re-mounts on dungeon gear for only $15, a full ski tune-up for only $34.99, and great prizes including a Free Granite Peak season pass which you can register for while you shop.
Once the Dungeon Sale is officially over, you are still free to shop the basement. (There’s just less to choose from!) Still not sure you want to own equipment and can’t find just want you want from our used inventory? Talk to an associate about Leasing.
Oh yeah… don’t be alarmed when you leave the shop after the sale and run into a crowd on the sidewalk. Shep’s is on the Paranormal Society’s Ghost Tour each year during Halloween Weekend. Our spirits rarely makes an appearance during the event though, so you’re safe in the Dungeon. Mwaa ha ha ha ha…
Dungeon Sale 2017 is October 25-29. The sale is 9am-8pm Wed-Fri, 9am-5pm Saturday and 11am-5pm Sunday. Suck up your courage, dig up the family and check our our frighteningly fun sale.
Meet the family: Sherpa. A small brand can change the world.
Sherpa, by it’s own definition, is a modern brand with ancient wisdom. It weaves together the latest designs and technology with the rich heritage and time-honored beliefs of Nepal. They focuse on providing economic and social stability to the people of Nepal through steady employment, quality working conditions and educational opportunities for future generations. As a Sherpa-founded company, the adventure clothing produced embraces technical materials and designs, passes grueling tests in the Himalayas, and weaves a rich heritage of humility into every garment.
“Our footprint may be small, but the Sherpa heart is big with belief that a modest brand can lift people up, train and educate the next generation, even help reverse the ravages of poor governance and a changing environment,” they say.
At Shep’s, we respect the values, wisdom and experience that Sherpa shares. They match our own.
Wisconsinites know winter lasts well into March most years. While box stores are busy putting out 4th of July goodies right after the Superbowl, Shepherd & Schaller is busy helping you live through and love the snow and cold any month of the year.
Winter Clearance begins February 18, 2017 with up to 50% off remaining ski and snowboard equipment and accessories, winter outerwear, sportswear and footwear. You know you’ll need it next season at least, so take advantage of low, low prices on the good stuff – brands you crave, fashions and tech you love. Diligent shoppers will even find markdowns of 60% in our Sale Room.
Don’t forget the kids. They grow like weeds don’t they? Stock up on snow pants, mittens, hats, jackets, snow boots and of course ski and snowboard gear. Why pay more?
