Try Le Baron - I've bought alot of riggin there over the last 17 or so years. Check out some of the small local shops before you order online - you can get some good gear. I was in Moncton a few weeks ago and sopped at the little store at the end of Mtn Road before you swing to Rogersville - everything from a fart to a clap of thunder in there!

Armour courier usually cheaper than canada post

Also traveling to sussex for the outdoor show so shipping would be free

I have personally bought from duxndogs. I wanted a coat for Duck hunting and this will be its 3rd year I believe.It has seen lots of use,and is still in good shape I ordered the coat and it was shipped promptly, but the box did come with a couple of Surprises . A duxndogs camo hat (NO CHARGE) which I still got though it is almost wore out now... and a duxndogs golf Shirt also (NO Charge) they were both in the Box.. I am not saying to expect extras in every order but Do not hesitate to order From duxndogs.. I received what I ordered and more for a fair price and shipped on time .Have I ordered from the big guys. yes. but I always check Ed"s site first to see if he has what I am after.

Wholesale sports in Calgary has a lot of the name brands and a pretty good online catalogue, I have found shipping to be pretty quick. The store in Moncton is called Lyons and they have an awful lot of clothing and footwear but I find thier prices are a little on the silly side, way over what you would expect to pay at a major store however they do have things that other places don't so I guess that allows them to put a big price on it.

I've bought from Wholesale Sports, Cabela's SIR, LeBaron and L.L. Bean. I also buy local but it's hard to find good prices and good durable gear. Also very limited selection here in N.B.

I recently bought a pair of waterproof hunting boots from L.L. Bean. Price was great and the shipping is free until Christmas to Canada. The best thing about L.L. Bean is the return policy. 100% guarantee satisfaction as long as you own the item. Just return and get a replacement or refund anytime. No questions.

Same old story around here for years.
I don't have it but I can get it
The price is higher and normally you end up with someting arriving late that is not what you wanted in the first place. Or you get ripped for not buying the item from them although you brought your arrows in for re-fletching.
Where did you get the bow
All these guys buying bows at other places only to bring their stuff in for maintenance
Funny thing is that I spend hundred of dollars at these shops buying accesories and sending other buddies over to buy stuff. For some reason they seem to forget that part of it

Here's to anybody owning a shop and is reading this. I look for the best deal. I still buy from shops around here but if you don't have any inventory and it takes weeks to get something then what do expect a consumer to do. You won't be in business long with that attitude. Word of mouth travels fast.

Hi- I have a shop -and its been in operation for about 5 years now.
"No sign out front" Customer base is largely word of mouth and just recently added a website and also I enjoy participating in forums like these through advertising and discussing products.
After reading your post-- decided I agree-
You should always look around for the best deal- its your earned money that your exchanging for what you hope will be great value.
Inventory- huge cost to business but absolutely nesscessary- people like to have hands on when they come to your shop and if its not geographically convienent they need to know they wont be waiting long for their gear.
The one thing I did not see in your post that I firmly believe is also in the quality of product-Why sell gear you can buy cheaper at Walmart.
I often say : I could sell out of the back of my car and people would not care as long as it was the gear they wanted and it was priced right.
The last thing i like to say is "you can't be everything to every body" I specialize in Waterfowl gear- dont know a thing about fishing - so I dont do fishing


Picture does not show the other room and garage of gear.
