FALL TENT SALE

Been wondering why you haven't yet heard the date for our annual fall tent sale? Well, the good news is that our building is expanding and construction work starts this fall. Unfortunately, this also means no fall tent sale. Don't worry though; there will be a spring 2016 tent sale! Check back in April for a save-the-date and/or sign up below to receive our monthly e-newsletter.

In the meantime, if you're in the neighborhood, please come on by and visit our factory store to enjoy 15% off all Badger products. We're open Mon-Fri, 8:30am – 4:30pm, except on holidays. And if you're making the trip, why not schedule a building tour, too? Tours are conducted Tues-Fri, 9:00 – 11:00am, and 1-3pm, by appointment only. To schedule yours, call 800-603-6100, and just like at Disney, you'll go behind the scenes to see where the Badger magic happens.
