Edmond Summit Company

Date Established: Opened 10/6/2008
Number of Employees: 5-8
Product/Service: Adventure Gear and Apparel

Edmond Summit Company opened its doors in Edmond on October 6, 2008. Owner John James chose Edmond because it is a great place to live and a great place to promote an active outdoor lifestyle.

The store is locally owned and operated, offering customers a unique experience with products picked specifically for them and friendly, knowledgeable, and passionate staff. Edmond Summit Company only sells products that meet the satisfaction of James and his staff as users. If they don't believe in the product due to its performance, durability, warranty or other reason, they won't carry it. And they embrace sharing their knowledge of products.

Recently selected as a Top 100 Outdoor Specialty Retailer by Outdoor Magazine USA, Edmond Summit Company hopes their passion for the outdoors will inspire people to get out and be more active. James and his staff are inspired by the outdoors and their goal is to pass that on.

For more information, visit Or stop by the store at 100 N. Broadway to check out the latest cold weather gear and apparel, arriving just in time for fall.

Edmond Summit Company and all Edmond businesses featured in The Arrow during 2014 will be entered into the EEDA's Featured Business Award contest. A winner will be chosen from among the year's featured businesses and will be recognized at the Edmond Economic Preview in January 2015.
