FAYETTEVILLE, ARK., — Gearhead Outfitters has relocated from their former location on Dickson Street to a new iconic location nearby on Block Street. When the company decided to close their former Fayetteville location in early April, owner and founder Ted Herget purchased the property at 101 N Block Street with a vision in mind. They started building out the store right away, eager to reopen after some necessary renovations to the historic building.
Store Manager, Erin Irizarry, is confident that their customers will see the benefits of the new location. “I believe Block Street will provide our guests with a unique shopping experience that represents our local community. Being in the heart of the historic downtown district, our space will be more walkable and accessible to our current and future patrons” Erin continued, “We want this space to serve as more than just a retail spot. Our goal is to make 101 N Block Street and Gearhead Outfitters a destination and a functioning part of what makes Fayetteville so special”. Ashlyn Cornell, Director of Operations for Gearhead shared in Irizarry’s excitement, “The Block St. area caters to the local community and we are excited to rehabilitate a historic building in the area. We are looking forward to being a part of all downtown has to offer.”
Gearhead Outfitters’ plans to open in early November with two official grand opening events scheduled for Friday, November 8th and 11th from 5-8 pm. In the meantime you can visit them in NWA at the Pinnacle Hills location or visit their Specialized Rental and Demo Facility, the Gearhead Experience Center in Bentonville.
