Everest launches online marketplace for outdoor recreation in the U.S.

No primary category set

Everest has launched as an online marketplace for the outdoor recreation space. It is the first U.S. online marketplace and community hub offering consumers brand assortment, convenience, expert advice, content and community all in one place. 

The marketplace brings together a range of American retailers who sell products for the outdoors, giving consumers a place to find everything they need in one place.

Despite being a sector with over $700 Billion in consumer spending, the outdoor market in the U.S. is relatively underserved. Currently, less than 20% of the industry’s sales are transacted online, and the market is expected to grow at 7.12% CAGR over the next four years. This means that there is great opportunity for online sellers to serve in this space. Identifying this, Everest aim to tap into that potential. Today, Everest.com offers products from over 1,000 US-based merchants and retailers, with plans to expand that number to over 10,000 by 2023.

Our mission is to create the largest marketplace on earth for the outdoor recreation community, not only meeting the need for passionate outdoorsmen, and women, but also providing a place for retailers and brands to stand out, build fanbases, and sell gear, accessories, and apparel for all genres of outdoor activity, We are providing an environment that’s just as seller friendly as it is consumer friendly. That level of collaboration allows for the most robust niche marketplace possible, which provides the best experience for the consumer.

– Bill Voss, Founder and CEO
