2022: The Year of the Hustle
This won't come as much of a shock, but starting a business is a hustle. From shlepping gear at events to journal entries to navigating inbound logistics to talking to the press to picking, packing, shipping and hand delivering - if you know, you know. There is very little sitting and lots of 2am thinking. Those are the hard parts. The great part? We absolutely love what we are doing and are so thankful for every moment that we get to spend on Town Hall.
When we look back at what transpired in 2022, one thing was clear - we were On.The.Go! It's baffling what we fit into 2022 and it truly feels like we built a great foundation to propel us forward. We kicked off the year realizing that there is no one better at building community than your small, local retailer who loves helping people #loveoutside. So we hit the road and knocked on door after door and found six amazing partners to sell Town Hall around the country. Spring brought new tees and truckers and decisions for our second winter product line. Summer was spent outside with our beautiful partners from the Emerald Mountain Epic to the 24 Hour Boat Cruise (Integrated Community) to the Vail Kids Adventure Games. And this fall we saw our hard work and great gear get selected by Outside Magazine as Best Kids Gear, a new store partner in Skinny Skis in Jackson, WY and a pop-up shop in our hometown.
We're inspired. We're tired. We're invigorated. We're proud. We're thankful. We're humbled. And, after a few days of rest over the Hallidays and a 'Boat-load of snow, we're ready for a big year ahead. A spring outerwear line, new store partnerships, more grassroots community events and the same smiles, love and community that Town Hall loves bringing you. Thanks for being you, thanks for being in our community, thanks for loving outside with us.
