Patagonia Stuff on Sale from Real Cheap Sports
Just got word of the President's Day Sale at Real Cheap Sports in Ventura. If you're lucky enough to live near that sleepy little town, you have to visit this place. I've been there a few times and the store is a throwback and more or less a hole in the wall. Nothing fancy, just discounted 1st quality stuff and nice folks working there to boot. With the Patagonia Great Pacific Iron Works store just a stone's throw away (quite literally), you can visit RCS then walk to the other store and show off your wares. Side note: I wonder how the Patagonia down jackets and vests do in a place like Southern California. Great for post-surf and the trip to Big Bear and Mammoth, but walking around Santa Monica and Pasadena I'm guessing folks would shed the down stuff before too long.
The sale will be Thursday, February 14th to Monday, February 18th and store hours are 10-7 on Thursday and Friday and 10-6 Saturday through Monday. Merchandise will be 10-60% off and they carry some other products from Mountain Hardwear and Black Diamond Equipment as well. Their phone number is 805-648-3803.
It'll be interesting to see what prices are like there compared to the Patagonia Winterfest Sale that will be happening at the same time. Hope you grab some great deals!
