Online outdoor retail supplier GreatOutdoors.com has outgrown its Kirkland, Wash., location and set up camp at a second site located 15 miles outside of Bend. GreatOutdoors, a division of Altrec.com, will use its new 35,000-square-foot building as a distribution and call center as well as for administrative offices. This creates about 30 new jobs in an area known for outdoor hotspots such as Smith Rock, Mount Bachelor and the Deschutes River. “We were looking for something that matched the outdoor lifestyle [of the company],” says Altrec.com CEO Mike Morford. “This is the ideal location with strong outdoor activities.”
