Shortly after WWII, father-and-son duo, Jacob and Sam Solomon, started the U.S. Army Surplus Store in Portland, Oregon. Surplus stores are the roots of many outdoor stores, (seriously, who doesn’t love paracord, folding shovels, and the durable goods designed for our hardworking military). The family started selling military ski gear and winter apparel which evolved into carrying ski and winter gear for the growing industry. In 1957, the U.S. Outdoor Store was born with the goal of outfitting outdoor enthusiasts in the area. The shop’s reach went international in 1996 when USOUTDOOR.com became one of the first outdoor stores to have an online presence.
