Boot Barn is the largest western-themed specialty retailer in California and one of the largest in the US, the company said. Its acquisition expands Boot Barn's footprint to 43 retail stores, including 36 located in California, 5 in Nevada, and 2 in Arizona.
"We are pleased to support Boot Barn's acquisition of these nine stores, which gives us an even stronger platform on which to build the leading western-themed specialty retailer," said Chris Britt, Marwit managing partner.

The company said that the western wear market is worth approximately $3bn at retail and growing at 4% to 5% per year.
