As new owners of Trading Post Outfitters, we are so excited to get to know each and every one of you, and embark on this adventure with our family! We, Andy and Jessica Linder, purchased the Trading Post in June 2018. Andy, originally from LaGrange County, has extensive experience in Management and Sales, and Jess, raised in Union Mills, IN, has great experience with Office Management and Customer Service. Together, we consider ourselves a dynamic duo. A couple of additions to our duo are our 2 young daughters, Lyla and Ophelia, who will no doubt love growing up in this business (and having a pond, river and playground in their back yard!)
Our love for this business that we now call our own all started on our annual canoe trip about 7 years ago. We connected with the previous owners and told them that we would be extremely interested if they ever decided to sell, but we didn’t really expect anything to come of it. We frequently talked about how awesome it would be to do what they do – live in nature, provide great experiences for so many people, mentor young adults, and have a family unit that knows the value of good work ethic but also has a lot of fun. Fortunately, they saw our passion and reached out when they were ready to pass their business on to someone else. It came at just the right time when we were ready to leave our corporate lifestyles in Indianapolis and get back to our roots. We knew that this is what we were meant to do. Andy being from LaGrange has made it really great to connect with family and old friends, and we are looking forward to making new connections & friendships with everyone here.
This business has been family owned and operated since it began in 1971 as a small restaurant on the river with 7 canoes! We feel so blessed to continue that legacy. From the amazing staff to the fantastic customers, we look forward to working hard to serve all of you! We are committed to providing only the best experiences at Trading Post Outfitters that create memories to last a lifetime. Our goal is to see your smiling faces back year after year, because YOU are what makes us successful. The best thanks of all you can give us, is recommending our business to someone you know who would enjoy an adventure here too!
Please let us know what we can do better for you to make your experience with us an even more memorable one. We cannot wait to meet each of you and grow our relationship together!
