5.11 Store Grand Opening in Shenandoah, Texas

Nestled in the Portofino Shopping Center, between Justice kids’ clothing store and PetSmart, is 5.11’s second Houston-area store. This one is in Shenandoah, Texas, just on the other side of Interstate 45 from The Woodlands.

The Woodlands is just north of Houston, and is the super-nice part of the Houston metropolitan area. The Shenandoah 5.11 store opened a few weeks back, but its grand opening is today.

The grand opening begins with a ribbon cutting by the Shenandoah mayor and a breaching demonstration by local LE at 10 a.m. The first seventy people through the door will receive gift cards worth anywhere from $25 to $511, and everyone who shows up gets a raffle ticket for prizes that’ll be awarded every half hour. Anyone who shows the staff that they shared the grand opening event page on Facebook will get a second raffle ticket. Vendors from F1 Firearms, Saddle River Range and High Ground Airsoft will be on hand, and free food will be served at noon. EVERYTHING in the store is 20% off this Saturday and Sunday.

Several hundred customers are expected at the grand opening, so show up early. But if you think you’ll be the first inside, forget it. Campers lined up outside the door last night.

This store features 5500 square feet of 5.11 awesomeness, but maybe with a slight change from other stores. While this outlet carries the usual military and LE-specific gear and clothing, its primary focus is on civilian clothing, EDC, and athletics.

The Shenandoah store’s leadership team is composed of General Manager Albert Tan and Assistant Manager Marcus Maldonado, aided by Social Media Manager Ryan Pang. They have some cool events planned for the future, so if you’re in the Houston area head out, have a good time, and gear up.

The Shenandoah 5.11 store is located at 19075 Interstate Highway 45 South, Shenandoah, Texas 77385. It’s on the northbound side of 45, just north of Research Forest/Tamina Road. See you there.
