The incoming Arc’teryx store will open at 2601 Walnut St, Denver, CO 80205. While a definitive debut date is not yet clear, a construction permit filed with the city details all new electrical and lighting as well as a required landmark review as the “location [is] within the boundaries of a designated Landmark or Landmark District.”

Arc’teryx, originally called Rock Solid, was founded in 1989 by Dave Lane. At the time, the store sold only climbing gear. In 1991, the company, with then-principal Jeremy Guard, rebranded and began also selling outerwear, eventually becoming famous for their Gore-Tex shell jackets, knitwear, and down parkas. 

The name Arc’teryx was derived from the term “Archaeopteryx,” or the transitional fossil of early dinosaurs to modern dinosaurs — better known as birds. In January 2001, Arc’teryx was purchased by the Adidas-owned Salomon Group. From there, Amer Sports purchased the Salomon Group from Adidas in 2005. Appropriately, Arc’teryx’s reach has spanned beyond sports, infiltrating the street fashion scene as many high-quality rugged brands do. An Arc’teryx Alpha SV jacket costs $4,000 before tax.  

The store will debut directly across the street from Patagonia, one of its leading competitors.
