Despite the rain on Saturday, the turnout for the Grand Opening of The Outdoor Shop, was very inspiring for owners Brian and Tina Johnson. Many braved the rain to take part in the festivities which included door prizes, drawings, free archery, special pricing on fishing and hunting equipment as well as great food prepared by Three Boys Bar-B-Q.
If the turnout is any indication of what to expect, Brian and Tina have hit a home run with their new store. The store features live bait and tackle for the fishing enthusiast, bows, arrows and other gear for the hunting or archery enthusiast and a full line of clothing for the outdoorsman in each of us. The shop also features an indoor archery range that is open to the public.
Brian and Tina are also taking consignments on the full range of outdoor equipment including boats, four wheelers and motorcycles. The Outdoor Shop is located at 1020 Nectar Lane in Taylorville. Phone number is 217-824-HUNT (4868).
