Expanding from Columbia’s flagship locations, the three new PFG Concept Stores can enter new regions for the brand and connect locally by integrating fishing motifs into the interior design, including nautical maps of familiar nearby shorelines and illustrations of native fish. Further inspired by local neighborhood character, the new prototype envelopes zones and category distinctions to create product stories and user interactions that engage, educate and excite the shopper. By combining tradition and technology, the store design celebrates tackling the outdoors in the finest gear on the planet by using custom fixtures and unique material, products and visuals that bring greater authenticity to the brand.
