'Tis The Season



With the holiday season upon us and old man winter knocking at our doors Rothco dealers placed nearly 1,000 wholesale orders from Saturday to Monday for nearly 14,000 lines of merchandise. What's more, our warehouse worked an extra shift on Saturday and another 12 hours yesterday to get the vast majority of these out the door!

We wouldn't be where we are today without the support of our dealers, thank you to everyone for choosing Rothco. We are excited and ready for what the rest of the season brings!!!

It comes equipped with a concealed carry pocket with hook & loop closure on each interior side of the jacket (the jacket will work for both left and right-handed draw) and 2 hook and loop closure mag pouches on each interior side to give optimal storage for firearms and firearm accessories.

Giving Tuesday


#GivingTuesday is a movement which celebrates and supports the act of giving during the holiday season. This special day harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges. 

Rothco is dedicated to giving back to the community, which has allowed us to flourish over the past 65 plus years. Which is why #GivingTuesday - is a perfect day to not only highlight Rothco's charity efforts but to shine a light on the charities themselves and fuel a greater awareness to such worthy causes. 

Throughout the year, Rothco makes a commitment to give back to our community with several charitable and volunteer programs, including: 

  • Rothco's Holiday Charity Program - For over two decades, Rothco employees have come together every holiday season to donate money to local grassroots charities. For every dollar raised by our employees, Rothco triples that donation!!! In 2017, our Christmas Charity Program raised over $500,000 and for 2018 we have already raised over $42,000. The money raised by Rothco and its employees will go to help several different local charities including The Suffolk County United Veterans Program, Hope House, Pronto, Angela's House, Gerald Ryan Outreach Center, A Mother's Kiss, Lighthouse Mission, and Long Island Against Domestic Violence. 
  • This past Thanksgiving Rothco Donated over 70 Turkeys to local food kitchens and outreach programs 
  • In 2018, Rothco employees have come together to volunteer over 50 hours of their time to numerous charity events 
  • Holiday Gift Program - this year Rothco's employees with help spread some holiday cheer by partnering with a local organization to give holiday gifts to underprivileged children in Suffolk County, NY
