ChangingGear believes in providing gently used sporting goods at reasonable prices to the citizens of Whitehorse while giving back to the community.
ChangingGear has been a long time coming. The idea for this store probably came to me about 15 years ago while sitting at the old Midnight Sun coffee roasters watching the world go by. Originally the store was only going to deal with outdoor gear but has since evolved into sporting goods. About 2 years ago i started researching whether this idea was viable and here we are today. So many people and businesses have been instrumental in getting ChangingGear off the ground. My family deserves a medal in patience for listening and offering advice for the last two years. Blue Toque Sports Consignment in Courtenay and North Shore Sports Swap in Vancouver have been wonderful, and I couldn’t have done it without them. Dana Naye Ventures and the BDC did so much to keep the plan in focus. So many friends have stepped up to help with the opening – I am truly fortunate to live in such a good community.
ChangingGear believes in forming partnerships with other businesses in town – ChangingGear is pleased to be able to work with Skatemasters Mobile, On Top Fly Shop and the Soccer Shoppe.
