Shopping at Lands’ End

Written by Tony Dennis on . Posted in Announcements

We have been working for awhile on a replacement for the physical store that is more cost effective.  In cooperation with Lands' EndWe think we've finally got a solution working.

In order to shop for Apparel at the site, follow the steps below, or use the following link:

http://business.landsend.com/store/columbiaaviationassoc/

LandsEndScreen1

LandsEndScreen1_1

You should end up here.

LandsEndScreen2

After that, create your own account and shop as if it was a normal eCommerce shopping site.  You can apply the CAA logo to a selection of clothing, then change its color and position.  After that, check out and have the merchandise shipped to your door.

If you have any problems, please contact either Dean Meyers or myself (Tony Dennis) for help.

Have Fun, and we'll see you at the club!

  1. Carburetor icing on takeoff – Almost impossible, more likely a carburetor float failure leading to too rich mixture.
  2. Cessna Seat Rails – The real story.
  3. Engine Compartment Electrical Fire – The problem with inductive noise suppressors and what to do if it happens to you.

Super program, please take the time to read through the presentation linked below.
