West Marine Invites Customers to Give the Gift of Adventure this Holiday Season

FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Oct. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — At West Marine, we are thinking about the Holidays a little differently this year. West Marine believes that the power to experience joy is in part possible because we are all inspired by our interactions with one another and by experiencing the beauty and peace of being on or near the water. Whether it’s a lake, river, pond or ocean, it is almost human nature to feel a sense of relaxation and serenity when surrounded by water. The company encourages its customers to "Celebrate" this year by connecting with the outdoors and one another.

West Marine hopes to inspire a gift giving season that builds memories and experiences. Whether you are shopping for an adrenaline seeking racing sailor, weekend angler, power boater, yogi paddler or someone that wants to get out on the water for the first time, West Marine has what you need to find the perfect gift to start or fuel the adventure.

"This year has shown us that participation in outdoor and water sports continues to grow, and this growth is here to stay" Ron Baime, Chief Merchandise Officer said. "The entire crew has worked hard, and in partnership with our vendor partners, to provide a product assortment this holiday season that will keep our customers inspired, active and safe. We are excited to be a part of your adventure, offering convenient online shopping, as well as in store knowledgeable crew members, to assist you in finding just the right gift for boaters, and their on-the-water wish lists."
