ATLANTA, June 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Nantahala Outdoor Center (NOC), one of the nation's largest outdoor outfitters, will open the doors to its newest location in Roswell, GA beginning June 20th, 2020. A small, RSVP-only "first launch" will be held Wednesday June 24th with VIPs, local officials and media representatives.
The opening of river and land based activities within the Chattahoochee National Recreation Area marks the 8th adventure operation for the outfitter across the Southeast and the second expansion within the greater Atlanta, GA market.
"The Chattahoochee River is an incredible resource for the Roswell and greater Atlanta communities. We are very excited to be able to open this year, despite all of the challenges," says General Manager George Virgo. "After a spring largely spent inside we anticipate a warm welcome from the community as they experience our stand up paddleboard and kayak/canoe rentals, tube trips, bicycle rentals, shuttles and small retail store."
According to Nantahala Outdoor Center, in its 48th year of operation, it has modified its operations in an effort to protect guests and guides in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes daily staff screenings, reduced capacity, and rigorous cleaning of all rental and shared equipment.
For media inquiries and media RSVP's to the limited first launch ceremony please contact Jan Wojtasinski, VP Marketing at [email protected].
