Bizline: Clothes & gear for kids in Breckenridge
Q: What type of business do you operate – what do you sell, or what service do you provide?A: It is a children’s outdoor clothing store. We specialize in proper outdoor gear for kids ranging in sizes infant to 18. We carry brands such as Spyder, Obermeyer, Burton, Orage, Smith, Kamik, Kelty, CamelBak; Smartwool, all for kids. “Winter to summer gear, its all here.”Q: Where are you from, and why did you decide to open your business in Summit County?A: I am from Vermont, but have been in Summit County for a long time. I worked for Marty, at Marty’s for Kids for the past 11 years. He had a very similar children’s outdoor clothing store in Breckenridge. I gained great knowledge working for him and have had tons of experience in this field. In the end of June I got the opportunity to open my own business, and carry on the legacy. Q: What experience do you have in this field? A: Working for Marty’s for Kids for 11 years. Also being involved in the wonderful outdoor community for so many years, understanding what we the kids need and what works! Q: What sets your business apart from other similar businesses? A: Many other mountain shops carry some children’s gear, yet I am the only store specializing in quality children’s outdoor clothing/gear in Breckenridge.Q: What types of customers do you hope to reach in Summit County? A: I hope to not only carry what all the tourists need on any given vacation. I also want to carry the gear and clothing that local families need for their kids. Especially living here in Summit County, we all know the kids need the gear as well! Q: Why did you choose to open where you did?A: I opened my business in the same location as Marty’s for Kids at 132 South Main St in Breckenridge. At the end of last winter when he decided it was time to move on, I was very lucky to have the opportunity to continue a similar shop in the same location. Q: What are your plans for your company’s future? A: To continually meet the needs of my customers on a year-round basis providing the best clothing and outdoor gear available. I also plan to continue to grow. I am open to any suggestions from customers that would like to see something in the shop I do not have. I plan on having a website for Annie’s Alpine Kids, in the future, to make shopping for the kids that much easier, and you never know, maybe in the distant future there will be more Annie’s Alpine Kids in other ski towns!
