We're Mike and Kathleen McShane, owners and managers of GEAR Elkader — NE Iowa's newest outdoor recreation store, offering kayaks, kayaking supplies, outdoor essentials and more! We're excited to be bringing quality recreational products to Elkader, Iowa. While we are catering to the outdoor enthusiast, we are also maintaining the history of the Glesne family's Coast to Coast hardware store that we have the privilege of turning into our new home. We'll be offering some hardware items to complement our outdoor gear product line.
New to the space will also offer gourmet coffee served up daily and a specialty waffle shop that is new, unique and simply delicious. We can't wait to share more with you on our menu and offerings, so stay tuned!
Mike and Kathleen join us from the Rocky Mountain town of Centennial, Wyoming having ran a historic hotel & café. They bring a wealth of outdoor gear knowledge and a love for the outdoors, great coffee and good food to the Elkader, Iowa area.
The Glesne family operated the Elkader Coast to Coast store for many years before we have the privilege of taking over the space. We're excited to be offering some hardware store items that you come to expect from this location! Stop in and see today.
