Whether you hike, bike, camp, hunt, or are just looking for great clothing and shoes, you’ll find yourself pleasantly immersed in skillfully-organized and artfully-displayed name-brand products. So, let’s take a look at Morning Star Outfitters and the man behind it… Jasper Mondello.

All in the Family

Deep Roots and a Growing Business

Morning Star Outfitters

While Morning Star Outfitters opened its doors in Truth or Consequences in 2019, its roots go much deeper. Back in 1992, Jasper Mondello’s parents opened a screen-printing shop in Silver City, New Mexico, a business that grew rapidly and eventually evolved into a thriving retail operation in tandem with the screen-printing operation. While working with his parents, Jasper frequently made trips to Truth or Consequences. When a location he’d had his eye on became available, Jasper jumped at the chance to purchase it – a 6,000 sq. ft. building with off-street parking and a great location, on the corner of North Broadway and Daniels Street in Truth or Consequences’ shopping district.

Family Values

Morning Star Outfitters

The Mondello family’s faith-based values are reflected in everything they do. They care deeply about their customers, which is why they focus on providing knowledgeable, trustworthy experiences for all who visit Morningstar Outfitters. By offering exceptional products and services, Morning Star stands as a valued resource for its customers while positively impacting the community. As Jasper so eloquently puts it, “We most enjoy operating our business because it gives us the opportunity to serve the community and add to the overall experience of the area, specifically downtown.”

A Look Inside Morning Star Outfitters

An Exceptional Footwear Selection

Morning Star Outfitters

From everyday wear to running and hiking, Morning Star Outfitters carries an extensive selection of men’s and women’s shoes and boots that include Merrell®, Keen®, Altra®, and Birkenstock®. And because great shoes and boots require equally great socks, Morning Star’s sock selection won’t disappoint, with the highest quality and super fun socks from Smartwool® and Darntough. And for the kids, you’ll find plenty of options in kids’ sports shoes and socks.

Name Brand and Customized Apparel

Morning Star Outfitters

You’ll be delighted with your choices in apparel, with brands that include Patagonia®, KÜHL, and NRS. From shirts and pants to hats, swimwear, and outerwear, you’re sure to find exactly what you need to enjoy New Mexico’s great outdoors, no matter what the season. And when it comes to customized apparel, Morning Star has you covered, thanks to the family’s production facility in Silver City. Count on them for embroidered and screen-printed shirts, jackets, hats and more for everything from individual requests and family reunions to sports teams and fans. Morning Star is also the place to go for promotional products, trophies and awards.

Bikes, Supplies and Repairs

Morning Star Outfitters

If you’re looking for a bike to purchase or rent, or need repairs, you’ll know you’re in the right place from the moment you enter Morning Star Outfitters. You’ll be greeted by rows of bikes that include top name brands – Aventon e-bikes and Specialized Sirrus, Rockhopper, Roll Sport and Turbo Vado. So whether you’re out for a casual ride or intend to explore Sierra County’s mountain ranges, you’ll be perfectly fitted with a bike that meets your objectives.

Need repairs? Morning Star has everything you need to tune up or make repairs on your own but if you’d rather have a professional do the work, once again, Morning Star has you covered. Their bike mechanic’s extensive experience includes working on professional team bikes, so you couldn’t ask to have your bike in better hands. 

And if you’re looking for bike gear, you’ll find an extensive selection of tires, tubes, seats, racks, lights, tools and more.

Gear and Accessories

Morning Star Outfitters

In addition to bike gear, Morning Star Outfitters is the place to go for all the gear you need to explore the best of Sierra County’s adventures. Shop for backpacks, sleeping bags, drinkware, tents, inflatable kayaks, sunscreen, sunglasses, snacks and all that you’ll need to ensure your experience is enjoyable. Best of all, you’ll appreciate name-brand selections from companies like Camelbak® and Osprey, which offer exceptional performance as well as lifetime guarantees.

And Morning Star Outfitters Carries What?

A Chilling Discovery!

Morning Star Outfitters

At one point in the history of the building Morning Star Outfitters now occupies, a supermarket occupied the space. And since many customers commented on where the ice cream had been located in the store, Jasper felt it only fitting that ice cream should return to its old home. 

That’s why, today, you can make a chilling discovery at Morning Star – a freezer filled with pints and half pints of homemade ice cream made by Koinonia, located in the tiny, remote town of San Lorenzo, which is nestled in the foothills of the Gila National Forest.  You’ll be surprised at the depth of your refreshingly yummy choices, which include Peach Pizzazz, Rah Rah Raspberry, Cheerful Cherry, and Royal Root Beer, just to name a few.

Scrubs, of Course!

Morning Star Outfitters

One of the other Morning Star Outfitters surprises is an extensive line of scrubs. So why on earth would an outfitter carry scrubs?  According to Jasper, the answer is simple.  With a large hospital in town and several clinics, the community needs a resource for medical wear, and who better to fill that need than Morning Star Outfitters! They even hold a huge “scrub sale” twice a year at the hospital.  It’s just one of the many ways Morning Star seeks to serve the needs of their community.

Final Thoughts

Morning Star Outfitters could hold its own against any resort-community outfitter with its exceptional selection of high-quality, name-brand products, all beautifully displayed in a sparkling-clean and welcoming retail environment. Be sure to meet Jasper when you visit as you’ll appreciate his warmth and wealth of information.  Whether you’re looking for a gift, personal items, or are preparing for a Sierra County adventure, you’ll love your Morning Star Outfitters experience!  Learn more @TorCOutfitters on Facebook.
