Tumac Outdoor expands


Tumac Outdoor is inviting the community inside to catch a peek of its relocated operation.

But visitors won't have to look far from the Rose Street headquarters.

The store has expanded into space previously occupied by Shumate Yamaha, according to an announcement. Still located at 902 W. Rose St., Tumac has moved into the showroom adjacent to its former location.

"We are totally focused on being the premier supplier of high-quality tractors, landscaping and outdoor equipment in Eastern Washington and Eastern Oregon," said store co-owner and General Manager Michael McClure, in a statement. "Kubota, Honda, Husqvarna and Traeger are all top-of-the-line products that we are proud to carry and service."

The store provides sales, parts and service support for the full range of Kubota tractors and landscaping equipment, as well as Honda power equipment, Traeger grills, Husqvarna outdoor equipment.

The expanded footprint will be the focus of a celebration during the store's annual Demo Days on Saturday. The event runs 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Guests can try out lawnmowers, small tractors and landscaping equipment. They can also get a look at items previously only available through Tumac's eStore.

There will be a barbecue using Traeger grills sold at the store. The event will also feature a display by Wenzel Nursery, a bouncy house for kids and ice cream from Schwan's. The WSU Extension Office master gardeners will be on site.

New staff members James Veatch and Justin Laib will be introduced. Veatch is arts manager for the Outdoor store and manager of Tumac's eStore at TumacOutdoorSupply.com . JuLaib, a Yamaha-certified technician, brings 10 years' experience working with Kubota and Honda products. Call 525-4550 or visit www.tumacoutdoor.com.
