November 24, 2014: Steve Traves, founder and proprietor of AMI Outfitters Coastal Gear & Apparel, is celebrating his shop’s second anniversary by expanding his dealership of premium brands. He introduced Patagonia, Simms and ExOfficio to Anna Maria Island in 2012, and is now bringing Orvis fly-fishing gear and sportswear to his Pine Avenue shop.
Traves attributes his store’s success to highly-personalized service in outfitting his customers with sun-proof clothing and top-quality equipment for an outdoor lifestyle, from Island sports to adventure travel. His expertise as an outdoorsman includes 29 years fishing and kayaking in local waters.
The public is invited to celebrate his shop’s second anniversary during Small Business Saturday®, the customer appreciation event held every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Traves will be giving away a free gift with purchase on November 29th from 9am to 6pm.
