Boaters World going out of business
If you've passed the local Boaters World store at the intersection S.R.200 and C.R.107 you've probably seen the large "Going out of Business" sign. First West Marine Express and now Boaters World! Liquidation prices are set at 10-30% off by the liquidation team and store employees do not have any authorization to change them. However, inside sources tell me that management is monitoring sales three times a day and have replacement signs with 50-60% off ready to go up as soon as they see sales volume drop during the liquidation, which is scheduled to last through June 20th. After they close, don't forget that long time local dealers such as The Boat House, Chelsea Marine, Ocean Outboard and Deonas Boatworks stock a variety of boat supplies and you can still rely on Amelia Bait and Tackle, The Bait House, and Leaders and Sinkers to have all of your fishing supplies. Another inside source tells me that West Marine is still considering opening another store in the Fernandina Beach area.
