Sheridan, WY – Weatherby, Inc completed a successful Grand Opening on June, 13th 2019 in Sheridan, WY. Weatherby was astounded by 5,000+ visitors wanting to share in the celebration. The ceremony was preceded by years of planning and careful decisions, culminating with the Weatherby family surrounded by relatives, friends, and officials joyfully opening the doors to the public and industry partners.
“I am so grateful for Weatherby’s past and rich heritage that began so many years ago in Southern California with my grandfather. I am so incredibly grateful for the state of Wyoming and the many others that helped get us to our new home”, says Adam Weatherby.
Weatherby began public tours of the facility at 9:00 am on the 13th and invited eleven local conservation group chapters to attend and bring awareness to efforts in the Wyoming region through conversation and product raffles. Multiple food trucks provided locally prepared meals for guests, and the Weatherby Visitor Center was constantly filled with guests viewing Weatherby historical documents and purchasing exclusive products.
