I guess I shouldn't say it "Damen's" store. There were 4 other partners. It was definitely a team effort. I also spoke with the architect, the general contractor, the city planner and several other key people, without which Gear:30 would never have come about. But I will say, that time and again those people told me, "This (meaning Gear:30) was all Damen" and other similar statements. Yeah, that made my buttons pop just a bit.
So, if you happen to be in Ogden, do a proud Mama a favor. Stop by the corner of Washington and Park to check out best outdoor retailer in town.
