Take A Closer Look

Take a closer look.

swimmers1proof

Are you seeing what you thought you’d see?  Did we peak your interest?  Do you want to see more?

Merchandise.  Displays.  Promotions.  Events.  We continue to mix things up at Shepherd & Schaller, where today “Sports For All Seasons” means something different to you and to us, than it did in the 1950’s, 1980’s, 2000’s and even last season!  When things change it’s good to take a closer look.  GA7A0417-Edit

Right now we’re all about skiing and snow sports, biking, hiking, paddling, yoga, disc golf, footwear, outerwear and sportswear for the trendy, smart Athleisure lifestyle we all embrace.  But you’ll also find handbags, home decor, skincare and unique products that compliment your active outdoor lifestyle.  Surprised?  When was the last time you experienced honest expert customer service, fun decor and cool technical products – all in one place?

Wausau’s local sports store is more than it’s ever been.  It’s time to take a closer look.

 

Shep’s Annual Dungeon Sale 2014

You are expected in the Dungeon, October 22-26, 2014.  We’ll be waiting to help you find new or used ski and snowboard gear for your entire family, at prices so low it’s frightening!

Shep’s accepts used gear late summer through October 10th (leaving a little time before the sale so we can inspect, clean, tag and inventory all the gear — no small task) 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 2014-15 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 $10, 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 2014 is October 22-26.  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.

Team Night is November 6, 2014

Gather your teammates and prepare for the podium at Shepherd & Schaller. We’re calling all ski & snowboard team members! Join us at Shep’s when we host a night for you; a night with access to special team discounts! If you’ve been around before, you probably know that prizes and refreshments are sure to show up too.  Rally your teammates, come on down, and get the gear you need to have the best season of your life.

Are you a coach or racer wanting to get your team involved? Call us at the store and we’ll chat! 715-845-5432

We’ll see you and your teammates Thursday, Nov. 6 at Shepherd & Schaller in Downtown Wausau.  9am-8pm.     Screen Shot 2014-10-07 at 10.05.29 AM

Stormy Kromers – An American Favorite

Stormy Kromers… are you familiar? Maybe you knew them as that wool hat with the ear flaps your grandpa Lou wore (and probably still wears). Or are they the ones you see on college campuses? The answer is: BOTH.

Stormy Kromers are well loved by all ages. They’re an old favorite, and a new (again) trend. The perfect way to keep your head and ears toasty this fall and winter, all while pulling off the fashion look you love.

So here’s what you should do:

1- Read a big of their story below (taken from StormyKromer.com) and the history of these hats will come alive.

2- Come down to the shop and see all the colors & styles we have and dream of which you’ll love most this chilly season.

3- Try it on and fall in love.

4- Wear it day after day.

It’s as simple as that! We have the largest selection of Kromers in the area so you’ll find hats with ties, buttons, plaids and solids, you’ll see your favorite team colors in their Benchwarmer collection, ear bands, can coozies, t-shirts, wool vests & bags, and more! They’re made right in Ironwood, MI, so you can be confident standing behind their brand, and sure that they meet even the toughest of winters head-on. They know what it’s like when the snow flies and the temperatures drop.

We’ll see you in the shop soon. 🙂
