In 1973, a climber, outdoor author, and Army Map Agency employee in St. Louis by the name of Bob Mooers, convinced Chouinard Equipment - the predecessor to outdoor industry giant Patagonia - to open him as a dealer. Mooers started a climbing shop in a small room upstairs from the home winemaking shop he was moonlighting on the side. Within a month, climbing outsold winemaking, which was soon abandoned in a move to a new larger space. By 1978, "Mooers Alpine" was thriving, but Mooers was looking to sell and move to the Northwest. A 45-year-old customer of his, a fugitive from corporate life who happened to hail from that exact same area of the country, made an offer and "Mooers Alpine" became "Alpine Shop," under the ownership of Russell "Holly" Hollenbeck. While climbing is still core to Alpine Shop's business, we now serve almost every type of outdoor enthusiast from backpackers, hikers, campers, paddlers, and cyclists, to snowboarders and skiers at four locations in Missouri and Kansas. After more than 45 years in the business, it is Alpine Shop's Vision to see: Generations Transformed by Discovery Outdoors.
