Summit Hut (Tucson, AZ)
Summit Hut had grassroots beginnings and continues to embrace that spirit since two 15-year-old friends collaborated to bring Tucson a special-order gear service for backpacking and mountaineering in 1967. Since then, Summit Hut has expanded into an international retailer, shipping outdoor gear to adventurers to places as far off as Cyprus and Japan. The store now holds the title of being one of the Grassroots Outdoor Alliance's 34 independent specialty outdoor stores throughout North America, and it recently implemented a community service program through which employees can volunteer with various community groups such as the Sky Island Alliance and the Tucson Audubon Society.
