Sad News: Archery Outpost is Closing - For Good

 
Very sad news out of Artesia, CA today as I just heard that Archery Outpost is closing for good this Sunday. This is from their Facebook page. Please stop over and leave them a message. Also, stop in this weekend and say hi, buy some things, and shoot a few arrows before 6 PM Sunday.

I would personally like to thank Laura and Connor for everything over the last seven years. You have been great to talk with, work with, and just get to know. Thank you for allowing me to shoot there, do some reviews there, and for taking care of my archery equipment! I wish you all the best!

Dear Fellow Archers, Friends, Customers, and the rest,

I am very sad to announce the Archery Outpost will close its doors at 6pm on Sunday, March 6th, 2016. 

Our hearts are broken. Since October, 2009 we have worked hard to build and nurture this wonderful place and pinned our hopes and dreams on it. We have been blessed with wonderful customers and friends. We have made awesome memories. 

I looked forward to you each of you coming in. I enjoyed having you here . I loved opening up the shop every day and sharing my life with you. I don’t know what I will do without you. I wish I had space here to name you all and hug you. 


Some things in life are just outside of your control. No matter how good your intentions, or how hard you work and plan there are bound to be some random terrible very unpleasant things that happen that you can’t foresee...like the song says- sometimes you’re the windshield, sometimes you’re the bug.

I love my crew; the best bunch that ever could have been brought together. They are all amazing archers, passionate about the sport, trustworthy and smart, computer savvy, funny and diligent. My staff picked up the slack where they saw it. They seemed to forgive whenever necessary. Everyone stuck together and was loyal. Thanks to you all : Maddie, Andrew, Connor, Graeme, Dale, Ripley, Mark, Kalie, Faith, Rachael, Mo, Drew, Nick, Larry and Joe. I love you.

Everything is on sale until the doors close on Sunday. Please stop by and toss a few arrows with us...and some hugs.
