Published January 22, 2021

HOUSTON (BRAIN) — Sun & Ski Sports, the Houston-based retailer with 30 stores, is giving its employees a thank you bonus of $250-$1,500 in recognition of their work in 2020 during the pandemic. 

The retailer said it is giving an "Appreciation Bonus" for all corporate, distribution center, and retail store employees. All currently employed full-time and part-time employers that were employed with the company in 2020 will be receiving the bonus.

"The challenges we have faced will likely be the biggest of our lifetime. But in these times, together we learned to adapt like never before, be more resilient, humble, and appreciative. Our Appreciation Bonus is just one of the ways we're happy to say thank you for giving it your all and helping make Sun & Ski Sports such a great place to be," said Sun & Ski Sports' president, Karl Salz. "Our employees' service through this pandemic has been and continues to be inspiring and first-class."

"It means a lot that our associates have consistently worked hard to ensure the future of our business during these difficult times." said Salz.

Sun & Ski Sports also provided a "Hero bonus" to all store and distribution center associates last fall.

"As other companies pull back on compensation, we are filled with gratitude to continue to invest in our greatest assets – our associates," said Rick Dodgen, the retailer's director of stores.

Sun & Ski Sports opened in 1980. It now has stores in 12 states as well as an e-commerce site. It offers products for ski, snowboard, bike, run, swim and more. Its bike brands include Cannondale, Rossignol, Marin, Haro, Santa Cruz and Cervélo
