What a year it has been

As New Years Eve Celebrations draw close it is time to reflect on 2013 and look forward to 2014. It has been an exciting year for the team here at The Gun Parlor.

It was a long road travelled to get to where we are. We opened in July and had a bit of a rocky start which is to be expected. Initially we had some issues with payment system during our ” soft opening “, our initial stock while modest was enough to break the bottle off the bow and get this ship out into the open waters.

Opening a Gun Shop in the Worcester was a long time goal of mine. To finally see it happen and the support that we have had from the community has justified my desire to do so. We want to be the type of shop that you tell others about. Rather than simply selling you a firearm, we want to to be a trusted resource and establish a relationship with our clients now and for the future.

After opening without having a true website and only promoting the shop on ( big shout out to the community there, you guys and girls have been very supportive) we launched the brand new in early October. Many thanks to our web guy Dan Fontaine who stepped up and designed the shop a great website that has been very successful in promoting The Gun Parlor. We have had clients in from Nantucket, New Bedford, North of Boston that have all found is via the website.

I owe a ton to my team that has grown as we have grown, my loyal clients and friends. Johnny, Jordan are here every day, working hard to assist in the running of the shop, helping clients and learning about all aspects of the shop.

As 2013 comes to a close, I look optimistically to 2014 and I am thankful for everything the second half of 2013 has provided me. From opening the shop, to getting married in October, to meeting new people and clients that have helped build my vision for The Gun Parlor. I want the Gun Parlor to be a fresh, service oriented experience for everyone who visits, a place where you tell your friends, ” you have to check this place out. ” We are knowledgeable, our prices are great and our service is better. If you haven’t visited yet, please plan on stopping by in 2014. I will be there to answer your questions and help you find the right firearm for your needs.

Lastly,  I am excited to be attending the SHOT Show in January in Las Vegas to learn about great new products and bring back some great information about what the manufacturers have in store for you in 2014 and beyond.

Wishing everyone a great and safe New Years and a prosperous 2014!
