Much of the GearUp2Go team could be found at the 2014 Snowmobile USA Show & Sale in Milwaukee this past weekend. If you didn't make it out there, you missed a good time and a lot of really great deals! It was definitely the place to be. This was GearUp2Go's second year at this show and like last year, there was a great turnout.
The 2014 Snowmobile USA Show and Sale took place in the 170,000 sq. ft. Wisconsin Exposition Center, located right inside the Wisconsin State Fairgrounds in downtown Milwaukee. There were almost 200 exhibitors at the show and nearly record attendance numbers. There were roughly 17,000 people who attended the event which is almost as many as last year. The turnout was great and GearUp2Go provided great deals to twice as many customers as last year. The place was hoppin'!
We had gear on hand from three of our top snowmobile gear brands including Klim, Divas SnowGear and Cortech. For both Klim and Divas SnowGear we had the latest 2015 styles available for folks to try on and purchase. Throughout the weekend, members from Divas SnowGear were in our booth to help answer customer questions about their new 2015 line of snow gear as well as assist with their gear from previous years.
On Sunday we slashed some prices even further which brought large waves of customers. Everyone wanted in on the deals. We cleared out entire racks of clothing in less than an hour. "It was intense," said Michael Lutes, GearUp2Go Business Unit Manager. "At one point we had a line of customers wrapping half-way around our booth."
Customers were buying up Divas SnowGear jackets at about 10% of their original price. Now THAT's a great deal! If you didn't make it out this year, you'll want to plan ahead for next year. You never know what you're going to find.
Thanks to all who stopped by our 2014 Snowmobile USA Show and Sale booth to say, "Hi" and to check things out. We had a blast and hope to see y'all again next year!
If you have any thoughts on other items you'd like to see in our booth next year, let us know.
