Sojourn is a great outdoors store in Barrie, Ontario. We have been going there for years and have bought most of our outdoor gear from the store. Although there might be less expensive places to buy outdoor gear the service at Sojourn, in my opinion, is second to none.
Throughout the year they have special days. Tent day in May, a lot of the manufacturers are there to display their tents and you get to see a whole range of them set up (marmot, MSR, Sierra Designs etc.). Keen Days, I love Keen shoes and cycling sandals. Sojourn has two big sales one in the spring and another in the fall. We got a great deal on Merino wool cycling jerseys at the fall sale.
If you are a ‘member’ at Sojourn every time you purchase something you gain points, which then equates to money off your next purchase. In November they also have a Members Only Night, where they have prizes and 20% of almost everything in the store. I saved almost $100.00 on the Thermarest “duvet style” blankets. I hate sleeping bags, I almost always tie myself in a knot, but these ‘blankets’ are like a comfy duvet. They came with a stuff sack, pack down really small and weight about 2lbs.
Sojourn also organize snow-shoe hikes in the winter and other great outdoor things in the summer. Before we leave on the Grand Adventure I want to try Stand-Up Paddle boarding. Sojourn organizes lessons on Lake Simcoe and you can try their canoes, kayaks and paddle boards for free.
This may look like an Ad for Sojourn. We are not getting anything for free from Sojourn. In my opinion, if you get good service and good products from a store it is worth promoting.
