Boot Barn opens store in Missoula


MISSOULA, Mont. - The city of Missoula has a new Western store and it opened up just in time for holiday shopping.

Boot Barn will join Cabela's, Petco and possibly Kohl's at Brooks and Reserve Streets where the old Kmart building was torn down this summer.

Store manager Deb Haberlock tells us there was demand for another Western-style store in Missoula and they were happy to fill the need.  

"There were a large number of customer requests from Montana to have a Boot Barn," she tells us.  "When they responded and came to Missoula the response has been amazing."

Haberlock tells NBC Montana the Missoula Boot Barn opened its doors Thursday, December 12 for a soft open.  She says it's exciting to see so many customers coming through the door.  

"Boot Barn just fits -- the atmosphere, the western wear, the work wear, it belongs in Montana," she says.

Haberlock says Boot Barn plans to open stores in Bozeman, Great Falls and Kalispell within the next 6 months.

The Missoula Boot Barn grand opening is December 18-22.  Haberlock wants to invite the public to come down for food, drink and a chance to win Boot Barn prizes.
