Bloomfield Hills, Michigan (August 3, 2017) – Outdoor adventure and action gear specialty retailer, Summit Sports, announces the acquisition of Kentucky-based Loucon, LLC.

Summit Sports is excited to grow their business once again, near the one year anniversary of their most recent acquisition of Texas-based Austin Canoe & Kayak (ACK).

 

Loucon operates SnowSportDeals.com, which is known in the industry for used and closeout snow and sports equipment, a market in which Summit Sports is excited to expand its presence.

Summit Sports purchased Loucon in May of 2017. The business will continue to operate with its previous owner, Chris Chapman, as General Manager.

 

“We are excited to be a part of the Summit Sports family,” says Chapman.“By leveraging our centralized fulfillment location in Kentucky and our experience with used products and marketplace sales we hope to contribute to the growth of Summit Sports. Working with this great team of people has been awesome!”

 

Loucon’s 40,000 square foot warehouse will allow for Summit Sports to increase available inventory for all its brands and increase its distribution footprint with improved expediting shipping services. According to FedEx, over 70% of the U.S. is within a two day shipping window from this location.

“The acquisition gives us the opportunity to expand our distribution facilities to better serve our customers,” says Summit Sports VP of Operations, Ray Luckadoo. “Furthermore, the addition of Loucon to the Summit Sports family of outdoor brands will also allow us to increase our offerings in discounted and used gear.”
