CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., Aug. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Ridge Mountain Sports Ltd. (BRMS) announces that it has secured financing for inventory to stock its seven stores located in Charlottesville, Virginia Beach and Blacksburg, Virginia; two stores in Knoxville, Tennessee; and stores in Madison and Princeton, New Jersey. This new inventory capital is in addition to the significant equity capital invested in June 2014 for the purchase and restructuring of the company by former management led by Stephen Nauss. Mr. Nauss's involvement in the business dates back to 1973, as an owner and operator. His leadership is responsible for the company's long history of success in the outdoors retail industry.
BRMS management secured inventory financing through Strategic Funding Source, Inc. (SFS), a leading New York City-based financial institution to retailers, restaurants, hotels, medical professionals, manufacturers, wholesalers and automotive dealers and suppliers. The SFS ongoing financial relationship demonstrates SFS's understanding of the underlining strength of the BRMS brand in the market. James Catanzaro, SFS Vice President, comments that "We review thousands of retail operations and BRMS stood out as a durable 40-year brand, loved by its customers. Having previous management back at the helm of the company excited us and we are seeing immediate results and success in our loan portfolio with BRMS. We hope to be involved with BRMS for the next 40 years of its history."
This new financing for inventory will ensure that BRMS has proper stock for the fall and holiday season. Stephen Nauss extols SFS as a great partner for the company. He states, "SFS's performance was incredibly responsive and professional on every level. We look forward to partnering with them to smooth and bolster the seasonality effects of the retail market."
