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.”
