In the words of the Beatles, "It was twenty years ago today..." Well, maybe not today, but this year marks the twentieth year since the Ecowood line of store fixtures was pushed out the door. The original line of about 5 pieces was developed to make better use of the waste material that came from timber frame components. Being outdoor junkies, Richard and Erika started showing their products at the original Outdoor Retailer trade show in Reno, Nevada. We've been a fixture, (pardon the pun), at the show for the better part of the last two decades, often exhibiting twice a year.
Colette and I took over September 1, 2001, just in time to see the economy grind to a halt after 9/11. We hung in there and have been growing ever since. The original line of fixtures has grown quite a bit since then and we have shipped pieces and complete store interiors all around the world. Keep an eye on us this year as we launch new and innovative products that will help your business grow.
And about that store in the photo, that's Stone Canyon Outfitters. Owner Don Morrison stuck with us through the difficult period after 9/11 and helped us to weather that storm. Always grateful to him for that…
Don and Colette, Head Ecowoodies
