Patagonia Santa Monica will offer a unique experience specifically created for the Los Angeles metro area. Similar to all Patagonia locations, the Santa Monica store strives to sell the best, high-quality products, cause no unnecessary harm to the environment and use its business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis.
“Customers from the Los Angeles area have expressed the need for a Patagonia location near Santa Monica surf spots, so we’re thrilled to have found a location that lets us carry the right assortment of boards, wetsuits and accessories for local active outdoor enthusiasts,” said Jason McCaffrey, Patagonia’s Director of Surf. “Having a one-stop-shop that houses the unique surf brands we carry is a dream come true--and having a space large enough to host community events like the January 24 th benefit is like icing on the cake.”
