Modern Outpost Enterprises, a Canadian leader in innovative camping and outdoor equipment officially opens its new outlet store in Comox.
The shop is designed to present the Modern Outpost catalogue to residents in an efficient and convenient format. Modern Outpost already offers free delivery to Comox Valley residents through its website. Outdoor enthusiasts now have the option to select the equipment they need in person.
“We offer equipment and services not available anywhere else in the Comox Valley, and often not the province or Canada,” says Graham Morfitt, owner of Modern Outpost since its inception in Victoria in 1998. The company promotes hundreds of products in 14 departments. “We stick to hardware such as portable solar power, self-powered lighting, wood burning pack stoves, portable water purification, waterproof field office supplies and much more.”
Of particular focus is the complete line of portable solar power equipment that Modern Outpost carries.
“We are able to provide people with the ability to charge virtually anything, virtually anywhere,” Morfitt said. “No one goes on wilderness adventures these days without being able to fully document them, and the cameras and personal electronics available today certainly enable this. But, these electronics all come with specific power requirements, and that’s where we come in.”
The shop is located inside and downstairs beside Black’s Cycle at 272 Anderton Rd in Comox.
Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Saturday.
