First responders sometimes don’t just open a door. They break through it.

And that is what will happen at 10 a.m. Saturday in Arlington when 5.11 – a supplier of tactical apparel and gear ¬– opens a brick-and-mortar retail store at 951 W. Interstate 20, Suite 107.

The company says in a news release that there will be a singing of the national anthem, a vocal performance of The Rose of Texas and “a ceremonial door breach demonstration using 5.11 tools.” There also will be recognition of local law enforcement officers and first responders.

“With offices around the globe, 5.11 works directly with end users to create purpose-built apparel and gear designed specifically to enhance the safety, accuracy, speed and performance of tactical professionals and enthusiasts worldwide,” the company’s release said.

The first 70 attendees (over age 18) will take part in gift card giveaways up to $511 in value and there is 20 percent off the purchase of 5.11 Tactical products. The opening also features raffles and complimentary food and refreshments throughout the day with lunch provided by Jason’s Deli.

Following the grand opening, the 5.11 Arlington store location will be open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The company said on its website that it started when the FBI Training Academy adopted the original 5.11 pant as its training pant in 1992.

“5.11 Tactical began developing a more extensive law enforcement line in 2003. Our designers work together with public safety professionals to create gear that meets the needs of real people in the field. In 2012, we rose to the challenge of redesigning our women’s collection to create better fitting and higher performing options,” the company said.

With the addition of the Arlington store, 5.11 now has 26 retails stores across the nation.
