I just wanted to take a moment to mourn the passing (or closing) of one of my favourite tackle shops. Quinte outdoor sports just north of Belleville Ontario closed it's doors this weekend, and ended a 16 year run. I have been a loyal customer for over 10 years now, stopping in each and every time i pasted through town, whether it was making a purchase or just shooting the shit, it was a nice little store and one the best tackle shops between Toronto and Ottawa.
I was saddened and surprised to see the doors papered up and locked this past weekend, and even more so when the new of the closing was confirmed. I wish Eric and his family all the best in the future, and will miss our conversations. They were always welcoming and helpful to both my wife and I
This is yet another reminder that big box stores and on-line purchasing are slowly killing the small guy. Please support your local shops, we dont need to add any more tackle shops to this growing list of casualties
