Dave is our trusty Proprieter, head buyer, bill payer, merchandiser, technology manager, sometime janitor and whatever else he can’t find someone else to do. Opening The Outdoor Store in 1993, he’s been hanging around ever since. You may not seem him as much these days as he looks for any excuse to go fly fishing, or running, or biking or motorcycling, but you can rest assured he is there in the shadows trying his best to do as little as possible.
Hannah is our Store Manager, Buyer and Web Manager and brings an abundance of pleasantness and sweetness to all. She grew up in the store, and continues the “family” tradition we are proud of. She is a graduate of American University, where she played Division 1 Field Hockey as Goalie, culminating her career ranked in the top 10 in the nation. When not at The Outdoor Store, she can be found on the fields of Montclair State University where she does double duty as an Assistant Coach. She also runs a pretty fast 10k (in Vibram Fivefingers), is a budding fly fisherwomen, geeks out on video games and despite being recently married still brings her laundry home.
Erin joined us after graduating from the University of New Hampshire, where she got her B.S. in Environmental Sciences. While there she led trips for the New Hampshire Outing Club, ranging from hiking to canoeing and kayaking to leadership development. She loves to hike, run (half marathons and 5k’s) and cycle, cross country and downhill skiing. She also spent a semester abroad in New Zealand, where she hiked two of the Great Walks. We are exhausted just listing all that! Erin is well versed in all the features and benefits of the products at The Outdoor Store and is always studying up on new arrivals. She has all the makings of a great buyer!
Andy came to us as part of a package deal with Hannah, and boy did we make out like bandits! His weekday occupation bears the prestigous title as a Scientist for a large pharmaceutical company. Yup, that’s really his official job title. Andy helps us out on weekends, holidays and whenever else Hannah tells him he has to, and he does it without complaining. Ever. As a Division 1 wrestler at American University he developed a fondness for weight lifting. He also runs, hikes and just generally keeps in tip-top shape. He hails from Maine and is no stranger to all things outdoor. And he grills a mean steak. What more could we ask?
Although Devin is our most recent staff hire, as a local Montclairite, we have known him since his middle school and high school days, and he always stood out from the pack for his maturity and outgoing personality. He already had a few years experience selling outdoor footwear at larger outdoor shop, so of course we were happy to hear he wanted to keep it more local and join us. His other gigs are as a College Admissions Counselor and summer camp counselor. He likes all things outdoors, and having studied/lived in both France and Japan he also brings travel experience to our customers.
