Sun and Ski settles into Wayzata

Excerpt:  “The McWethy’s new store, Sun & Ski, does not sell ‘hardware’.  In other words, it does not sell skis, snowboards, skateboards and the like.  It does, though, sell all of the clothing one might need to stay warm on the slopes.”

“We know winter wear well’, said Robin.  ‘We’ll have warm, waterproof, skiwear at every price point.”

This fall and winter, shoppers can expect to find boutique European ski brands like Kjus and Eider in stock along side more popular outdoor brands like Patagonia and North Face.”

“Our core customers are families with children’, said Jim.  ‘This is a family store.”

Mpls/St Paul Magazine, June 2012 “Best Of Summer” issue; page 69:

“Sun & Ski Clothing Outfitters.  Get dressed for the boat or beach.  You’ll find a deep selection of performance and fashion swimwear and accessories for the whole family.”
