My name is Briana Bradley and I was hired on at Tri-State Outfitters in Moscow, ID as a cashier back in August 2014. After 6 months I transferred into the clothing department and have loved it ever since! Tri-State outfitters has been an awesome home and extended family to me for almost 2 years! Not only is it a great place to work but it fuels my adventures. I get to learn about amazing products while at work and wonderful places to explore from customers that I help.
Just like our store, my hobbies are a mixture of everything. During the summer months I love to go hiking wherever there’s a trail, mountain biking (especially on the Hiawatha trail), kayaking, and stand-up paddle boarding on the Snake river. Road trips are a weekly endeavor and the Pacific Northwest is my playground.
As far as my favorite products to use on my adventures go, that’s a long list! So some of my favorites are Osprey packs. I have two packs myself and have bought two for my boyfriend because I want to “share the love”. Ahnu is my go-to hiking boot brand because they’re light-weight and feel like they were made for my feet. Prana has the best hiking pants hands-down and my goal is to own them in every color! Last but not least is Arc’teryx for outerwear! I got to visit the factory store in Vancouver which makes me proud that I understand the hard work that went into the jackets that I own and love.
I’ve been working at Tri-State Outfitters full-time in the shoe department for over 6 years. I worked full-time at the store during the summers in Receiving at age 15 until age 17 and then full-time in the Shoe Department from 1991 until 1992. In 1993 I joined the U.S. Army and served 3 years at Fort Carson, Colorado. After my honorable discharge I became a Footwear Department Head for two years at Gart Sports in Colorado Springs, Colorado while I finished my Associates of Applied Science in Architectural and Structural Drafting from Denver Technical College. I spent the next 16 years in the architectural industry, after which I returned to Moscow, Idaho to work in the Shoe Department here at Tri-State. Of all the jobs I have worked in my lifetime, this position has been the most fun and rewarding.
I have fallen in love with my hometown now once again, and now enjoy the outdoors the area has to offer even more than in the past. My favorite things to do in this area are mountain biking, trail running and hiking, backpacking, hunting and fishing.
Here’s recent review we received about Tige:
“We finally purchased a sports shoe with Tige… what a phenomenal guy!!! He knows his products well…. he could sell us the whole store!! On a serious note, he really does know his shoe product really well and other products in the store.. from the form fitting to the way one’s feet walk (supination, pronation, overpronation, underpronation… bla bla bla)… he knows what shoes to recommend and why. He is very good with customers in the way he conduct himself very professionally, with confidence, I appreciate how he treated my boyfriend and me, even though I was there for my boyfriend. Tige is excellent when it comes to customer service.”
