Some of you know this already, but for those that don't, I am the new Head of the fishing department of Wholesale Sports in Langley.
The store is looking good, we are in the middle of stocking the shelves and are shooting for a May 16th opening, but if things keep going the way they are, we may be open as soon as May 10th.
The store is looking GREAT, we have a HUGE fishing department as well as a HUGE Hunting depatrtment. I have spent the past 2 days just putting Rods out on the floor, and looks like it may take a few more. We will have 1500 fishing rods on the floor, from $20 spinning rods, all the way up to $900 fly rods. The store is a total of 35,000sqft and has a HUGE selection.
As for those of you worried about the small shops like Galilee, I think that a place like Army and Navy has more to lose than the small shops. The small shops are specialized, Army and Navy is direct compitition to Wholesale Sports, With Camping, Hiking, Hunting, Fishing, etc....
I am VERY excited to be the Head of the Fishing department, It is going to be a GREAT store, and the customer service will be AWSOME as we have hired a GREAT group of people.
I will keep you all informed of actual opening date.
One last thing,
Wholesale Sports is looking for 2 more people;
Hunting Department Head, Must be a hunter, have PAL, and have retail experience
Fishing Department (Full time) We are in need of one more full time person that knows about retail, and has fishing experience. Ocean, Fly, Gear, etc......
