Our Story Our Outdoor Passion

MEET THE NEW O.R. OWNERS!
Let us introduce ourselves! By: Joe Saladino and Chrissy Rogner

We are truly excited, grateful and PROUD of the OR brand!
We would like to give a little background of Outdoor Republic.
The original Founder; George Davis who is an avid outdoor enthusiast had just come back from a family vacation in the Keys. While there he was doing all the activities we Florida natives or vacationers love to do. Activities such as snorkeling, boating, fishing, lobstering, or just soaking up the sun. While enjoying all those things, he felt he wanted to create a way for his family to show their passion for the outdoors. He returned and he got busy . It was during the recession and he had plenty of time to start with ideas of decals and clothing. It was then that Outdoor Republic” was born.

Since then Outdoor Republic has become loved and recognized by many all over the state!
O.R. also has a following of customers, in other states, as well as other countries!
It didn’t happen overnight!  It was with all the hard work, dedication, and support of the family, friends, and the community! It didn’t take us long  to love all the products Outdoor Republic has to offer. We were hooked from day one! Through the years of being supporters and customers we saw the brand growing . We saw that the foundation of what OR was built on never went away. That was a Christian family-based company that truly stuck to the love and appreciation of the outdoors.

With the Davis family continually growing, Marin Davis, the previous manager has decided to dedicate her time to her family and being a mommy to five girls! It was then the opportunity was given to us to purchase this local successful apparel company. We jumped at the opportunity! However, the Davis family will continue to work with us and still be very much be a part of the OR family.

Joe and I both have lived in Punta Gorda, most of our lives. We both have raised our children here in Charlotte County. We have been involved in the community in multiple capacities. Joe Saladino has owned and operated his family business, Prompt Towing for over 30 years! We have weathered many storms of mother nature as well as the economy. We love our community! It’s a place we are proud to live and call our HOME. We are huge advocates for our local and worldwide first responders. We are proud to be part of the globally recognized motorcycle club “Gunfighters “!


We both look forward to meeting our existing loyal customers, as well as new ones, as we pursue expanding the brand all over the world! Please stop in and say hi and check out our inventory!
