To our Valued Customers:

The state of Virginia has issued a mandate: "Any brick-and-mortar retail business who are not designated essential must limit all in-person shopping to no more than 10 patrons per establishment, adhere to social distancing recommendations, sanitize common surfaces, and apply relevant workplace guidance from state and federal authorities. If any such business cannot adhere to the 10-patron limit with proper social distancing requirements, it must close."

Sundog Outfitter is open for business as usual but will remain open with reduced hours. We cannot provide shuttles (per the mandate) but we can rent bikes and remain open for business as long as we limit the number of patrons in the building to 10 at a time. Please call 888-595-2453 if you have any questions. At the same time, we want to assure you that our already strict sanitizing practices remain in place and are being enhanced where possible, including increased attention to more frequent wiping down of any high touch surfaces. This being said, we ask that you use common sense and avoid coming to Sundog Outfitter if you are experiencing or have recently experienced any fever, cough, or other respiratory issues, or have been in contact with anyone who is having or has had these symptoms.

Please respect our workers and others personal space, keep clean, and stay safe. Damascus will still offer the best family fun experience in the region. We look forward to seeing you come and enjoy!
