Special UCOP discount offer for Columbia and Mountain Hardwear Employee Store

With fall just around the corner, are you thinking about buying a new jacket, coat or shoes? If so, you might want to take advantage of a special offer for UCOP staff to shop at the Columbia Sportswear and Mountain Hardwear Employee Store in Richmond.

From Sept. 1 – 24, UCOP staff can access the 14,444 square-foot store and take advantage of exclusive discounts on current season apparel, footwear, accessories and outdoor equipment from Columbia SportswearMountain HardwearSOREL, and prAna. Check out those websites to get an idea of the merchandise and then get ready to save 40 to 60 percent off those online prices!

To take advantage of this great offer, download the special invitation and either bring a print-out of it or have it ready to show on your phone when you arrive at the store. You’ll need this document AND proof of UCOP employment (such as your badge or pay stub) to enter the store and shop.

These invitations are not transferable but you are welcome to bring up to four additional guests with you to the store. See the invitation for further instructions.

If they don’t have the item you want or the size you need, you can order it while in the store at the same discounted price.

The 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. from this site are beautiful! If you have time, you might want to grab a drink or bite to eat, take a walk along the Richmond Bay Trail, or visit other nearby historical sites.
