Name That Company

I trace my roots back to 1911, when my founder, a hunter frustrated with cold, damp feet, designed a boot with a rubber bottom and a leather top. I soon became known for great service and high-quality goods. Most of my early sales came from my mail-order catalog, but online sales eclipsed that in 2009. I’m an outdoor gear and apparel retailing giant. My flagship store in the Northeast U.S. has no locks on its doors, as it’s open nonstop year-round. With 220,000 square feet, it’s visited by more than 3 million people yearly. I rake in more than $1 billion annually. Who am I?

Think you know the answer? We’ll announce it in next week’s edition. ¦
