About Saluda Outfitters
Just opened in spring 2017, Saluda Outfitters is a welcomed addition to the North Carolina mountain area and upstate South Carolina. Located in Polk County within walking distance of downtown Saluda, just one mile off I-26 at Exit 59, this upscale outdoor adventure store provides shoppers with an extensive array of top-quality performance apparel, outdoor camping, kayaking, and paddle boarding equipment and supplies. Housed in a refurbished custom log cabin, the store’s ample retail space houses popular brands such as Chaco, Salomon, Olukai and Keen footwear complimented by the comfort of Farm to Feet socks. Included in the wide variety of outdoor wear are brands such as Marmot, Arc’teryx, Mountain Hardware, prAna, Royal Robbins and NRS gear for enjoying an outing on the nearby Green River. Additionally, for the convenience of the whitewater adventure seeker, H2O Dreams has taken up residence in the store, offering private and group paddle sports instruction. Participants can gear up and gain experienced instruction all in one location! A cool selection of Meridian Line, Landmark Project and Lake Escape T-shirts and hats line the walls and shelves with a little something for all sizes and tastes, including kids. For those looking for something more chic, Saluda Outfitters has a boutique carrying a beautiful selection of Elan fashions. At Saluda Outfitters, a large stone indoor fireplace and an outdoor old homestead chimney offer shoppers a warm and friendly atmosphere. Come and relax in a hand-crafted rocking chair on one of the large covered porches, grab a cup of specialty coffee from the store’s coffee corner or take a snack out back to one of the picnic tables. Store hours are 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.
