Special discount invitation for Mountain Hardwear store

Need high quality clothes for casual or active wear, such as shoes and winter jackets?

You’re in luck, because the exclusive Mountain Hardwear employee store in Richmond has issued an invitation for all UCOP staff to shop there through Sunday, Jan. 8. All merchandise in the store is discounted 40 to 60 percent below retail prices.

The 14,444-square-foot store offers the latest, current season apparel, footwear, accessories and outdoor equipment from Mountain HardwearColumbiaSOREL and Montrail brands, in both adult and youth sizes. If they don’t have the item you want or the size you need, you can order it while in the store (at same discounted price) and they will deliver it to you. Check the company sites linked above to see what merchandise is available.

Entry to the store is limited to people bearing a special pass. Download the pass issued for UCOP staff (PDF), print it out and bring it with you. You must also bring and present one of these three items as proof of employment: your UCOP badge, pay stub or business card.

Pass is good for one visit only, so come prepared with your shopping list and allow enough time to go through the very large store! Merchandise is returnable. Pass is non-transferable, but you may bring up to four guests with you on your visit, so feel free to invite family and friends.

The Mountain Hardwear Employee Store is located at 1414 Harbour Way South in Richmond. It is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Parking is free and plentiful.

TIP: While you’re in the area, consider visiting the fascinating Rosie the Riveter museum adjacent to the store. Admission is free and the entire museum can be seen in an hour. Be sure to watch the short films screened on the lower level about the Rosies and the manufacturing innovations of Henry J. Kaiser. Under Kaiser’s leadership, Richmond and its Rosies built more ships than any other shipyard during World War II, turning out as many as three ships in a single day! It’s a great slice of both Bay Area and American history.

The views of the bay and S.F. are also beautiful at this site and you can grab a drink or bite to eat or take a walk along part of the S.F. Bay Trail. There are additional historic sites to visit nearby.
