“Great Outdoor Provision Co.’s roots as a business go back to 1972. They go back much further if I waxed ‘Southern’ and talked about how the outdoors influenced my life. But as a business, it goes back to ’72. One hundred twenty square feet in the back of a bicycle shop in Carrboro, NC, a stack of Svea 123’s, a rounder of Mountain House freezedried ice cream and Turkey Tetrizzini, and a broken size run of Pivetta Muir Trail boots.” – Tom Valone, Founder
