Jesse Brown’s began in 1970, as a small mountaineering shop in Greer, SC. The shop was founded by Jesse Brown, a pilot that was introduced to specialty outdoor shops through his travels to Manhattan & the Northeast. At the time, there were no other recreational retailers of its kind in the Southeast. In the early 1970’s Jesse Brown’s Outdoors was moved from Greer, SC to Charlotte, NC to access a larger Charlotte market. Through the years, Jesse Brown’s Outdoors has grown with prominent brands such as The North Face, Mountain Hardwear, Arc’Teryx and Patagonia. It has also been a leader in the sport of fly fishing for our region. Angler Services is a guide service based out of Jesse Brown’s Outdoors, which is run by Don Yager. Jesse Brown’s Outdoors continued to grow in the Charlotte area by opening a shop in Ballantyne Village in 2006. As it was Jesse Brown’s original goal, it is still ours today, to stand behind the high quality gear we sell, to provide customers with knowledge and advice for their travels and to offer them superior service. We continue to seek out new, innovative brands for the activities that revolve around escape, active lifestyle and comfort.
