"Needed a pair of hiking boots for our trip to the Smokies and got much more -- great customer service and some tips and directions for hikes from a local. Pleased with my purchase and very reasonable prices too!"

"Michael is super helpful and one of the most genuinely nice people you will ever meet. GSM has a great selection of hiking and outdoor gear and they stand behind their products. I was fully expecting to pay a bit more since it was a local specialty shop and they always tend to have higher prices. Just the contrary. Being an avid Amazon Prime shopper, I bought 3 paris of Keen hiking boots and 2 pairs of trekking poles CHEAPER than I could get the same items on Amazon Prime! BONUS! Had a shoelace break on my second outting and stopped in on Memorial day of all days and they were open. Since they were out of laces, Michael pulled a lace from a display shoe and had me ready to go in no time. Always super friendly and helpful service with TONS of knowledge about the area and hiking trails."
