The Gear Closet, located in the North Shore of Chattanooga at 535 Cherokee Blvd., is Chattanooga's premier outdoor gear resale shop with a purpose. The Gear Closet accepts tax-deductible donations of used and new outdoor gear and apparel, as well as items for consignment. All donations and consignment items are sold at resale prices in order to provide the community with low-cost outdoor gear options and to support clean water education efforts in Chattanooga and the Caribbean though the efforts of TenneSEA and CaribbeanSEA. On Saturday, Nov. 17 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. the Gear Closet will host Beer for Gear, a “gear-raising” event to support the clean water education efforts of TenneSEA and CaribbeanSEA. The public is invited to visit the shop, make a donation of outdoor gear, and enjoy live music and drinks provided by the Chattanooga Brewing Company.
