We have come to the difficult decision that it is best if we close our Santa Rosa location. With the general economy idling, it makes sense to focus our resources on the San Rafael store only. We will be closing our Santa Rosa store at the end of January when our lease ends at that location.

Luckily, our most important asset - the knowledgeable anglers and hunters who make up the Western Sport Shop staff - will be joining us in the San Rafael store as we recombine operations in 2011.

My hope is that you will have the opportunity to continue to rely upon us as your hunting, fishing and fly fishing destination.

Obviously, if you only shop in the San Rafael store, not much will change, except you may notice some new (and old) faces behind the counter in the new year.

For Santa Rosa customers, there are a few things to be aware of:
- All Western Sport Shop Gift Certificates and store credits will be honored at the San Rafael store.
- Any firearm pickups must be made in Santa Rosa before January 24th. Any pickups after that time will take place in the San Rafael store.
- Any warranty issues on items purchased in Santa Rosa can be taken care of through the San Rafael store.
- We will continue to sell California Fishing & Hunting Licenses through the Santa Rosa store until it closes.

Obviously, we are sad to have to close the Santa Rosa store, but feel that it is best for us overall.

The good news for you is that we need to reduce a good chunk of inventory from the Santa Rosa location - 2790 Santa Rosa Avenue, Santa Rosa

I've posted more specifics about our Store Closing Sale over in the "Gear & Tackle Classified Ads" section.

Thank you for your support!
