Help Save Slim Pickins Outfitters

Slim Pickins Outfitters, the nation’s first Black-owned outdoor gear shop, is in grave danger of closing its doors for good if we don’t come together as a community and raise the necessary funds ASAP. Like so many other independently owned small businesses, Slim Pickins is in desperate need of capital to dig out of the debt caused by COVID-19. If we are able to hit our fundraising goal, not only will it get Slim Pickins out of debt caused by the pandemic, but it will provide Jahmicah and Heather a firm foundation to continue to build their vision for a more diverse and inclusive outdoor industry. 

Slim Pickins Outfitters has been a community mainstay and a purveyor of positivity in Stephenville, TX since it was founded in 2017. It has been a fixture within the community that brings together people from all walks of life, and is the town’s “go-to” supplier of outdoor and adventure-ready goods and services. They have become a vital part of the spirit and energy of their community. 

When you walk into Slim Pickins, you’re treated like family. That’s because for Jahmicah, Heather, their team, and Bill Murray (their basset hound), there is no distinction. You’re instantly welcomed as part of the family. They have built a remarkable space within the community that’s warm, passionate, and laid back. As they like to describe it, “Stephenchill, TX.” 

Slim Pickins stands apart within the outdoor industry, and they need our support. The town of Stephenville, and the outdoor industry, would be a lot worse off without Jahmicah and Heather sharing their endless love and passion with all of us. 

Let’s make sure Slim Pickins stays open. Let’s prove that the extraordinary spirit of the outdoor community can overcome the wave of despair and harm driven by this pandemic. We’re asking you to join us in donating what you can and/or sharing this campaign with your friends/family/co-workers. Every little bit helps a ton.
