We're honored to be taking the reigns from the Glesne family, opening GEAR Elkader in the former Coast to Coast building in the main street district of Elkader. Our store will offer some of the hardware supplies and resources that have been available at this location for years before us, but we'll also be adding some exciting new items to the store, catering to the outdoor enthusiasts and also... the coffee lover!
GEAR Elkader is owned and operated by the McShanes. With midwest roots, Mike and Kathleen moved to Elkader from Centennial, WY after running their own hotel, cafe, and coffee roasting business in the small, Rocky Mountain ski-lodge community. Stop in and say hello to Mike and Kathleen this Spring!
That's right — we're an outdoor adventure store with more! Coffee will be served daily at the store, with GEAR Elkader's own roasted coffee, at-home coffee products, and much more being available for purchase as well. More details to come on our coffee shop offerings!
We plan to offer a wide range of outdoor gear for sale at the shop, including kayaks and kayaking gear for all experience levels. Stay tuned for more info and if you have suggestions for gear that you are looking for, please let us know!
Sign up to hear from us about specials, sales, and events.
