Nome Outfitters has joined the Bonanza Fuel, LLC Subsidiary with the store re-opening scheduled for Monday, December 23, 2019, at 10 am AKDT.
Bonanza Fuel, LLC CEO Scot Henderson shared, “We have worked strategically to grow our Nome-based retail operations for better serving both the Nome and Bering Strait regional markets. The acquisition of Nome Outfitters adds an important line of new products conveniently available at our Anvil City Station for supporting subsistence, outdoor and recreation activities. We are looking forward to growing Nome Outfitters with new products and committed to continuing local values with customers.”
Nome Outfitters has moved to a new retail location at the Anvil City Station which is at 400 Bering Street in Nome, Alaska. The updated Nome Outfitters store will be open 7-days a week from 10 am to 6 pm. The new store space was recently remodeled and upgraded to house Nome Outfitters, which will now be next to the Bonanza Express convenience store/gas station and Quality Auto Parts/NAPA store. At the new location, customers may experience a new interior with an expanded selection of products including the option to purchase gas or diesel from the pumps at Nome Outfitters or the Bonanza Express store.
“Nome Outfitters was started by John Elmore in Icy View in 1977 and he ran it for 19 years,” shared Mark Johnson the previous owner. “I have owned the business for the past 23 years since 1996. Nome Outfitters has primarily served families, subsistence hunters and fishermen in Nome and the surrounding villages with outdoor gear for the past 42 years. Nome Outfitters has a history of employing long-term local employees and we are very appreciative for their service to the community and region. I am pleased and feel very confident that Bonanza Fuel, LLC will carry on this long tradition of providing needed supplies and excellent customer service.”
With the transition of ownership, Nome Outfitters customers can now earn Express Rewards with store purchases. The rewards will follow the Bonanza Express Reward Sticker Program that awards customers for every $20 spent (now in both Nome Outfitters and Bonanza Express stores) including gas and diesel products. Reward stickers must be collected at time of purchase and can be used for Alaska Airline miles or discounts off future purchases. Please see the stores for more details.
Nome Outfitters will continue to proudly offer retail items for camping, fishing, hunting, outdoor and recreation activities. In addition, the new store will expand with an appliance showroom with freezers, televisions, cell phones, furniture and kitchen/household appliances. Appliances can be delivered for free to customer locations within the City of Nome limits or drop off to regional airlines for village freight. Nome Outfitters will also offer Alaska Fish and Game licenses as a vendor for issuing subsistence permits and sport/commercial licenses, stamps, and big game tags.
