Snow Peak has postponed the grand opening of its new U.S. headquarters and retail flagship in Portland, OR due to wildfires burning across the state. The event is rescheduled for the weekend of October 3.

The U.S. headquarters and retail flagship are at 404 NW 23rd Avenue.

The Japanese outdoor brand is using the grand opening as an opportunity to collect donations of used outdoor shelters and basic necessities for those who have lost their homes in the fires and for supporting first responders. The brand will collect donations of tents, sleeping bags, sleeping mats, camping chairs, camping tables, and cots. Snow Peak will match donations with its own contribution of outdoor gear. Donations can also be made at Snow Peak’s retail store in NYC. For those living outside of Portland and NYC, Snow Peak is accepting shipped donations to its Portland warehouse from now through mid-October. Shipping details can be found at

“Community is deeply important to Snow Peak and our headquarters is built with that in mind,” said Matt Liddle, chief operating officer at Snow Peak USA. “Snow Peak has long held that time spent outdoors with others is restorative to the human spirit, and an antidote to the stresses of modern life. As the fires burned across Oregon and much of the West Coast, the outdoors that so many escape to for tranquility was suddenly inaccessible. We want to do whatever we can to assist everyone who has been touched by this tragedy during an already challenging year.”
