I have told my buddy that live up there, go in an for the manger, and explain that beside got fishing stuff all the other things you buy there, then explain maybe you don't need the other thing also.Well shit. There goes my fly shop. I guess that gives them more room for crappy clothes and more empty ammunition shelves.
That's exactly the thing. I only bought North 40's other crap because I went to the fly shop. That isn't happening anymore.I have told my buddy that live up there, go in an for the manger, and explain that beside got fishing stuff all the other things you buy there, then explain maybe you don't need the other thing also.
Is this change just for the store in Omak or does the decision impact all North-40 stores? I just logged on to the Lewiston Id store and it looks like this must be an entire chain thing.So, I got this message from my friend in Omak today.... Apparently North40 no longer selling fly stuff... Here was his text:
"I had very very sad news today. I went to North 40 to pick up some thread and..... the fly shop was gone. The sales guy I normally talk to said no more fly materials. [email protected] $&@-?. Uggggggg"
Just so you know in advance.
there had been talks about airway having a fly shop back when i worked for them, but I kinda got the impression they settled on the CDA shop instead.I wonder if the closing is location specific or if they plan on doing the same in other locations.
They're building a new store in Airway Heights and I was hoping it would include a fly fishing department.
That's a real loss. I don't get to a fly shop more than twice a year and now that has been cut in half. I wonder who will liquidate their stock..
My nearest fly shop is about 100 miles away and I haven't been there in about 10 years because of the traffic. So much for buying local.
You nailed it, according to my sources. They needed the money for the Airway store. No warning, just came in and dismantled. I spent thousands at that fly shop over the years, and would have spent thousands more... And over the years I spent incidental extra money there only because of the fly shop. Guess I won't be shopping at North Forty anymore. I can get my pet food at more local places. Don't need to contribute to these corporate asshats.
