To celebrate the opening of its eighth store in central New York, “Herb” Philipson’s has scheduled a grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday, Sept. 17 at 11 a.m. at the new store on Route 31 in the Wal-Mart Shopping Center in Newark.
Gary Philipson, president of “Herb” Philipson’s, will officially cut the ribbon and will be joined by other local dignitaries.
The grand opening celebration will include special savings and giveaways throughout the store with no purchase necessary, along with special live radio remotes.
Known as “Outfitters for the Great Outdoors,” “Herb” Philipson’s was founded by Gary’s father, Herb, in 1951 and offers quality brand name merchandise at everyday low prices. The original store – in Rome — had just 800 square feet of selling space in a modest storefront location.
Today, the eight “Herb” Philipson’s stores offer over 250,000 square feet of fashion and work apparel; athletic, casual, work and winter footwear; and a large selection of camping, marine, military surplus, fishing, hunting, and sporting apparel and equipment from top brands in the industry including Northface, Columbia, Carhartt, Nike, Levi’s, Under Armour and Remington.
In addition to Newark, “Herb” Philipson’s has locations in Oneida, Rome, Herkimer, New Hartford, Watertown, Liverpool and Syracuse, New York.
