Store Manager: David Tremsky
I am excited to have the opportunity to welcome you to Orvis in Westchesters Ridge Hill mall. Prior to joining Orvis, I was the General Manager of a northeastern sporting goods retailer. My passion for fishing, bird watching, shooting, and the outdoors began in 1989 while attending Colorado State University. From my first trout in the Cache La Poudre River to kayak fishing for local stripers, I enjoy nothing more than a day by the water. With my retail experience and love of the outdoors, I hope to promote a passion for conservation and the responsible use of our local resources. I assure you my staff and I will make your visit to Ridge Hill a memorable one.
