Podium Venture opens first retail location in Portland

Jun '07
Podium Venture Group Inc, an apparel, media, and publishing holding company in the lifestyle sports industry, announced Corduroy Surf Company's first retail location in Portland, Maine has opened its doors and is receiving praise among the surfing community and local press.

"We have been opened since the 5th of June -- albeit a 'soft' opening. The first few weeks are being focused on allowing the local market to come and see the store as well as lining up numerous press events to promote the opening. First week sales have been on par to reach our milestones as previously announced and we expect to be welcomed into the city and capture this exciting and expanding market. The Portland Corduroy Grand Opening is slated for early July and will feature invites for local press, industry representatives, Surfrider Foundation local chapter members, and, of course, our local and loyal surfing community." -- Jim McGinley, President & CEO, Podium Venture Group Inc.

Podium Venture Group Inc is a holding company focused on apparel, media, publishing and communications in the lifestyle sports market. The company intends to grow through strategic mergers and acquisitions, capitalization, and internal vertical growth.
