"I welcome the Big Rock Sports team with open arms to The Biggest Little City," said Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve. "A premier outdoor sporting goods distributor like Big Rock Sports opening a new distribution facility in Reno is further proof that we've officially become an attractive logistics hub in the West. This also adds to our already great reputation for outdoors and recreation."

"Big Rock Sports is a great fit for our region and is a place where outdoor sports are year-round activities," said Mike Kazmierski, President and CEO of EDAWN.
