PF McMullin Co. Discounted Ski Equipment

Here is last Monday’s post to OC Family Magazine. Enjoy.



Whistler 2011


Ahhh!  Ski Season!  With the rains we have had recently, skiing has been as they say, “epic”. Out of hibernation comes the ski gear with high hopes for trips locally or out of state.  Mittens, gloves, socks, after ski boots, and long underwear are gathered to provide warmth out on the slopes and comfort in the lodge next to a cozy fire.  Oh the excitement and anticipation!  Great snow, friendly people, and good times await.  Then the music dramatically pauses.  Rats! My little guy seems to have grown 3 inches since last season and all of his gear is way too small.  Sound familiar?  As for DH’s ski pants, they are no longer acceptable for public viewing.  What to do?  WHAT TO DO?

I need ski gear fast, and I don’t want to spend a fortune.  I found a good one friends and I’m happy to share this great Orange County secret.

P.F. McMullin Co. 

It is a “mom and pop” discounted ski shop located off Edinger in Orange County.  They sell discount snowboarding equipment, outerwear, and accessories.  The store has been there for 46 years through goods economic times and bad.  Relying on word of mouth advertising, they do not even have an advertising budget.  They also do not have promotions or coupons.  The price you see in October will be the price you see in February.  It keeps the prices down.  Way, way down!

It is a skiers paradise for a few months out of the year.  The store is NOT available year round.  They open their doors in September.  The McMullins snatch up inventory from major brands who wish to unload their goods that did not move during the summer months. They are selective and will not bring sale merchandise into their store which cannot be offered as a (smoooking!) deal.  Discounts in October run between 5% to 20% off retail prices depending on the Brand.  The merchandise moves quickly since it’s new season items.  But have no fear, the staff is on their toes knowing what items are popular. Reordering fast selling gear for Holiday purchases is a common practice.  By January and February, merchandise arrives from large manufactures offering close out prices.  These close-out deals at McMullins are typically 15- 40% below retail.

So have I perked your interest?  Want to know where to find this gem? I must admit it can be a touch tricky.

I’ll provided a few photos to help you along.  After exiting the 55 freeway and  traveling west along Edinger, you’ll pass Carl’s Jr’s to your right.  At this point start looking to your left to find their white van with PF cow logo.  See Below.  If you hit Grand Ave, turn around; you have gone too far.

Once you spy the van, look for their signage on the top of the adjacent building.

Turn in and park. Start walking towards the back of the business complex, passing all the business offices. Keep your eyes fixed on looking for the flag below.

Once you get to the flag you will find the entrance.

Now let me share the mother load of deals to be found. Remember that my 6yo needs new winter ski equipment?  What would you expect to pay for a new jacket and ski pants?  A few hundred?  Check out this amazing deal for a ski jacket (with built in expandable sleeve) and bibs ski pants.

Junior Girls Roxy Ski Jacket – $89 marked down from $175.

Helmets start at $39 marked down from $59.  The one shown above is a Holt Audio Helmet for $69. What is so special about it?  Well you can plug in your MP3 player straight to your helmet for a little surround sound action.  No worries; the sound level is safe.  It’s not overly loud where fire sirens would be drowned out.  What joy!  I imagine listening to Maroon 5 while sitting on the ski lift at Alta.

These Turbine Siren Low Rise women’s ski pants have been a top seller eight years running. They have extra seams on the booty for that all important H2O protection. This is perfect if just in case you are learning to snow board and end up on you back end too much.  The pants also feature vents to cool down if you are burning up the slopes.

Priced at $69 from $115
