Happy Monday

Hi Everyone, yes it is Monday and I am posting today.  Here at the store we are in a little bit of a lull, prepping for our last big holiday weekend Labor Day that is not to say there will not be busy weekends here in our area.  Car Shows and gatherings are what is happening now and also Fall Bike Week will be here as well.  I kind of get into the car show thing because I belong to the Coastal Carolina Mustang Club and we are a big part of Mustang week and our own Mustang Stampede Car Show the first week in April.  If you are planning on a visit to our area for any of our fall events please take an afternoon or morning to come and visit our store in Ocean Isle our people would be happy to greet you and demonstrate what you would like to see.  Well I have company at home this week so my schedule is different and varied.  Please follow us on Twitter and Facebook for more information. 


It is still Summer in the South

Yes with families getting ready to send their students back to school we are still here to help you with your last minute GPS needs, whether to send your students off to college or take that last break in the sun.  I know for a fact that car shows are picking up along the east coast.  Myrtle Beach has Mustang week 9/4-9/8 and Coastal Carolina Mustang Club has their annual show judging over 600 cars the first week in October and some of our other clubs are planning rallies to drive the Dragons’ Tail in Tennessee so if you are planning on coming or going to any of these or other events and need a good GPS just give us a call we can help.  Of and don’t forget the Fall Motorcycle Rally in Myrtle Beach we can help with it too.  It has been busy to say the least here with vacations and our little Callie on maternity leave, yup she and Jessie welcomed Archie in early July.  Well back to the world of customer service for me until next week.  Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter.


Good Morning and welcome to August

Yes it is now August and we are starting to think about our Fall boat show in Annapolis but first we have to get everyone some needed vacation at least a couple of days to refresh for the fall.  Also to spend time with their families which are as important to the store as our employees.  Hard to believe but that is the feeling you get when you walk through the door to work here.  Our little family grew by one the first part of July when our Callie and her husband Jessie welcomed Archie a 9’3″ baby boy to our family and his big sister Lake.  Quite the feeling in the store, some much legitimate caring and love for the family, you know prayers and best wishes etc.  Well Scott is gone and so we are down a VP so I am cutting this short.  Please once again check us out on Facebook and Twitter for more information on us and our store.


Big News from Garmin

Well at the International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades ICAST Garmin was presented with the Best of Show Award for their Paqnoptix LiveScope, which may change the way we fish.  This revolutionary system will provide either a down view or forward view depending on how you wish to view it.  To quote one of the Garmin Team Pros Fred Roumbanis “you can actually see movement and the profile; while he was snapping a jig on the bottom, and I saw a walleye and I could see the fins on the walleye! There is no way I could have seen that before”.  Pretty amazing stuff.  Garmin and our store are looking for this to be a big seller and we are recommending to anyone who may be able buy one, to get it on order and get in line.  The system includes the GLS 10 sonar black box and the LVS32 transducer with marine network cable for easy installation.  Also included are two mounting brackets one for the transom and one for the trolling motor.  Glad to have some news to relay to you at this time of year.  If you are looking for anything don’t hesitate to call us.  I will be back to you next week but please check us out on Facebook and Twitter.


Another busy week here at The GPS Store

Yes indeed our store is really popping right now with customers looking to upgrade their marine systems.  The showroom has been extremely busy with walk in traffic and they are all buying, which is great.  The phones have been really busy too with questions and orders and of course the occasional problem that we take care off for our customers.  I am more than impressed watching our team with the way they speak and help our customers, it makes me proud to be part of this team.  The fourth of July is an extremely busy time here at the beach with out of towners here which really impacts the traffic flow.  It is good to have an automotive GPS just to keep you up to date on traffic accidents in our area.  Well enough for this week but please follow us on Facebook and Twitter and I will be back next week.


Busy Busy Busy

Yup those are the words for what is going on here at The GPS Store.  It is very hectic with visitors to our showroom and the phones are really popping.  We have remarkable deals on the echoMap CHIRP 93SV and 94SV either one for $599.95 a great deal.  We are about to enter the very busiest time of the year for our area.  The 4th of July in Myrtle Beach is huge so make sure your gps are up to date and working correctly because there will be drivers that are looking for restaurants and making no so smart driving decisions.  If you are travelling we can still get you a GPS for your trip or vacation in plenty of time.  Well off to the phones so please be safe and I will be back to you next week.


Mid week update

Back again for a mid week update.  We can tell that tourist season is happening here at th beach.  A lot of visitors to our area and especially in our showroom.  The traffic seems to be continuous which is nice to meet our friends from other parts of the country.  We still have some great specials going on, for the fishermen and women we have the EchoMap 93 and 94SV’s at $599.95 each which offers a 9″ chartplotter with sounder offering ClearVu and SideVu as well as CHIRP giving you the absolute best in current fishfinding technology.  For even more you can add Panoptix for a lifelike presentation of what is going on under the water.  Just great electronics at a great price from The GPS Store.  I will be back to you soon but please follow us on Twitter and Facebook for more specials and info as to what is happening here.
