Ski Barn

Outdoor Furniture Retailer Case Study

Increasing brand awareness through a full-scale digital and traditional marketing campaign

Ski Barn was founded on being a one-stop convenience shop for all skiing and family vacation needs. Now, 50 years and three generations later, Ski Barn has grown to four locations stocked with seasonal outdoor furniture and activity equipment. All Ski Barn employees endure extensive training to ensure their customers are getting the most knowledge and best product with every purchase.
