The Prairie Summit Shop Inc. started in 2006, in Regina, SK, Canada, as a mono brand store, selling only products from The North Face.
In 2009 we added a second store in Winnipeg, MB, Canada so we could offer the same product selection we pride ourselves on to the residents of Manitoba. Then in 2011 we added our 3rd store, in Saskatoon, SK, Canada, for the same reasons.
In 2013 we renamed our stores “The North Face – Regina”, and Winnipeg & Saskatoon respectively. This name change reflected our new Partnership with The North Face Canada. We are not a corporate North Face store, rather a partner store to The North Face, which means that we are entrusted by The North Face to represent their products in the best possible manner.
We still operate under the Prairie Summit Shop name as this is our incorporated company name, and also our website.
Because we are based in the prairies, hence the name… our stock is selected for the adventures and travels of the area. This by no means is limiting to our customers… our customers tackle some of the highest peaks, grandest rivers, and travel the most remote countries; but beneficial because we also deal with the most extreme weather changes on the planet, and come winter time you will find no better outerwear selection to keep you comfortable all winter long.
When you come into the stores and get overwhelmed by all the products and selection, have no fear. We also are able to boast that we have the best staff and most knowledgeable North Face guru’s employed at our store.
When you come in and start talking with our staff, you will feel confident with the information they are giving you and selections they help you make. But just like how the North Face athletes have specialties, so do our staff, so feel free to ask for the expert in the area or activity that you are shopping for.
We pride ourselves on stocking some of the most diverse selections of The North Face brand products anywhere in Canada (often even having more selection at one time than the corporate stores.) We try our best to keep our stores well stocked, particularly on the best selling items. If we don’t stock what you are looking for, we first check if either of our other store locations has it, and if not, we can often try to special order it from our suppliers. We want to offer not only the best product selection, but want to give our customers the best customer service experience we can when shopping in our stores.
