I put the review at this store as it is their home office. Orvis claims to have a "lifetime no questions asked guarantee". But, don't try and use it. We returned over $1,000 worth of clothing as my father in law had passed away. Orvis list the clothing and offered us nothing. I returned some additional clothing and stead of... More

I don't fish but found this huge Orvis store in Manchester to be so interesting. You learn so much about fishing by walking through this store. They have everything under the sun for fishing on 2 gigantic floors. The store is also by a beautiful lake.

What a great store to spend time in. The products they sell, though expensive, are beautiful. The staff is quite knowledgeable and helpful. Plenty of areas to sit down and relax in while other members of your party are shopping. They have a nice indoor pond along with several beautiful outdoor fishing ponds. You can spend time watching the fish... More

This was a wonderful experience for three of us. The instructors/advisors were knowledgable and very easy to interact with. They really know their stuff! The 2 hour Wed. workshop is free and is a good intro to fly fishing. We'll definitely be following up by learning more and culminating in a fishing day!

Guided tour of the factory where they make their famous fly fishing rods. Much more involved that we expected. 1.5hr tour by experienced staff who actually makes the special bamboo rods himself. well worth the time

Go to Manchester and stop at the Orvis store. Has trout pond inside and gifts for everyone. Great quality and fly fishing school and rod making on property behind and across the street. Cute town and nice stores and place to eat.

Orvis and high quality products are synonymous. The layout and the set up in the store fits in perfect with Manchester. They display and sell many items made locally and national brands produced in the USA. They back their products and have a very broad selection for all upscale tastes

We stopped at the Orvis headquarters store b/c our friend likes their clothing. I think he had sticker shock because he usually buys on sale. The staff was most pleasant and helpful. My friend didn't buy anything but I sure did! Visited the outlet as well. The landscaping and decorating inside are worth stopping to see. We took pictures all... More

For you outdoor types, the Orvis Flagship Store in Manchester is a must see place. This is Mecca for Sportsmen and women, and anyone that spends time outdoors. I have been buying Orvis for years and the quality is superior. I bought khaki pants, vests and shirts from them that i have had for 8 years.
