“They have a lot of stuff. Dried food in packets and hunting knives and they have a lot of stuff here,” said Patrick Henderson, of Washington County.
“What’s really cool here is they have a whole cowboy shop, so they have all the boots and clothes for everyone. Plus, they have all the Carhartt for all the workers and stuff like that, selling all the fire retardant products, so I think it’s going to bring everyone,” added Matt Geist, of New Jersey.
