    I hope they also decide to reinstate their semi-annual sales in Old Town as well.  While having the sale at several different locations could be more convenient, the revised format is far less cost effective for fans of their product and I’ve found the selection / quantities not as appealing.  The same exact model kayak I purchased the last year of the “traditional” sale was priced more than 20% higher the very next year so I chose to forgo the purchase rather than add another boat to my “fleet.”  I’m sure many other customers had done the same during a tough economic period. 

    All in all though, love to see a local product with such a great reputation.
