When he was a kid growing up in San Francisco, CEO Adam Baruh would flip through pages in his collection of National Geographic magazines and wonder about all of these seemingly far-off places in the world. He loved spending time looking at maps and atlases and globes...he would imagine traveling the world, meeting people from different cultures...listening to the sounds of their language, smelling the fragrances of their foods.
During college he also worked as a Biological Sciences Technician with the National Park Service in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area at Fort Mason in San Francisco and also at Fort Cronkite in Sausilito. At the same time, he was a volunteer hike leader at Mount Tamalpais State Park in Marin County, California. His love for hiking and the outdoors flourished. Out of this love came the idea for a retail business focused on supplying folks in the Northwest with great gear and products designed for them!
Here at the Northwest Supply Company, we hire the best gearheads that enjoy providing outdoor enthusiasts with the best equipment and clothing at affordable prices. Thanks for visiting our site, and we look forward to seeing you in the great Northwest!
