Cheyenne, Wyo., March 19, 2012 - Sierra Trading Post – a multichannel retailer known for great deals on great brands – announces the grand opening of its new Fort Collins Technology Campus (FCTC) at 2002 Caribou Dr. Sierra Trading Post will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony on March 23 from noon to 1 p.m.
The 4,700-sq.ft. office will accommodate full-time, technology-focused employees as well as employees from other divisions who will split time between the FCTC and company headquarters in Cheyenne, Wyo.
"Our company has grown from a small catalog retailer to an online powerhouse because we invest in technology solutions," says Gary Imig, president of Sierra Trading Post. "We continue to hire the best talent in the industry – in Wyoming and now in Colorado – to create ways for customers to shop our site and interact with us however they choose and wherever they are."
The FCTC is centrally located just off Timberline Road between Horsetooth Road and Harmony Road. It offers easy access to I-25, CSU, downtown and the Power Trail.
