Sun & Ski’s New England stores specialize in snow sports and focus on providing a comfortable, small-store feel with the low prices of larger retailers, thanks to Sun & Ski’s national buying power. Sun & Ski offers customers a low-price guarantee, matching any competitor’s price, along with a satisfaction guarantee, ensuring that all customers walk away knowing they received the highest quality at the best value.

“We’re looking forward to serving the Woburn and regional market from our new store in this premier location, which will feature ski and snowboard gear in the winter and patio furniture in the summer,” said Steve Rath, co-CEO/COO of Retail Concepts Inc., parent company of Sun & Ski. “This opening marks our 30th store, and we’re glad to be arriving in Woburn in time to provide our expertise and winter gear to New England skiers.”
