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.


Hello again from OIB

Good morning to everyone, we are in the last day of our 20th Anniversary Super Sale which has been running for 10 days, and it has been great.  Our phones have been ringing off the hook and we added another line to help our customers get through.I feel like I shouldn’t be saying customers I should be saying friends because that is what they fee like to me.  We are running our sale all the way through today so if there is anything we can help you with please give us a call or visit our website and order.  Remember if you order before 4 P.M. eastern time your order ships the same day, and with our 2 day shipping special for $9.95 you get it on Thursday.  Please check us out on Facebook, and Twitter.  Thanks until next week stay safe.


Thanks again

I can’t thank our customers and friends enough who have seen their way to trusting The GPS Store to handle their orders over the past 20 years.  It has been and continues to be a great experience for all of us.  We are mid-way through our 20th Annual Super Sale and we are really moving the merchandise.  Drew,Scott, and Jamie have loaded our warehouse with inventory and we are shipping in huge numbers every day.  We still have stock in the 94SV and 93SV from Garmin and the price of $629.95 saves $470.00 a big number in your pocket book.  You can even further save by purchasing a G2 Vision chart and get a $200.00 rebate from Garmin if you buy with a chartplotter.  Well I will be back to you next week so stay safe.  Please check us out on Facebook, and Twitter.


Almost time

True it is.  It is almost time for our annual Super Sale and this year it is marking 20 years in business.  Hard to believe but it is a fact Drew and Gina have created a powerhouse store here in Ocean Isle Beach, NC.  Along with our sale Garmin has announced that they will again be offering a $200.00 rebate for the purchase of a G2 Vision Card when a new Chartplotter is purchased.  Keep you eyes on our Website to see what we are offering.  Don”t forget to follow us on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.


Update on what is going on.

Here in coastal North Carolina we are busy getting ready for something big.  Our 20th Anniversary Super Sale, which will happen in May.  I know it is hard to believe that our little store has been in business for 20 years, but we have and we grow every day and every year.  Most of us here have been with Drew and Gina for well over half of their first 20 years.  We have found a home and a family and treat each other as such every day.  What a presence we have on the internet, I have been here for 14 or 15 years and the growth I have experienced is terrific.  I listen to my family on the phone and know what they are telling to our customers is true and accurate.  We do not lie to make a sale, We earn each and every customer we get.  If anyone is into Mountain Biking Garmin is having and event in Kansas, called the Dirty Kanza should be a fun time for all.  Please follow on Facebook and Twitter I know there will be much more info on our Super Sale.  I will be writing you soon so stay safe.

Coming for BikeWeek?

Good question for anyone planning on coming to Myrtle Beach Bike Week.  we have you covered this year with a great deal on Garmin’s Zumo-395LM for $349.95.  Order it today and have time to install and use it before you hit the roads in warm weather next month.   We can ship it today so you have it in plenty of time to show off to your friends and use it in your vehicle towing your motorcycle.


Happy Easter and Happy Passover Week

Yes that’s right spring is here and our spring holidays have arrived.  This indicates that spring break is upon us and whey you are in or near Myrtle Beach this is a big deal because we are invaded from the North.  Teachers and their families want some warm weather and they head our way.  I can’t blame them i did the same for years before I moved here.  If you are in our area we do have a store front and we wish you would come in for a visit.  If you are still looking at marine electronics we have a great display and we can show you how to use them.  If you are driving please make sure your GPS is updated and in working order, they do help getting you to your destination.  well welcome to our little piece of heaven if you are coming down.  Travel safely and please check us out on Facebook and Twitter.


Almost normal.

That is a true statement here at The GPS Store, we are all back from spring boat show season, and met a lot of new and old friends at the shows.  I hope that anyone who was looking for new marine electronics got an opportunity to attend one of the shows.  Chartplotters and fishfinders are the backbone of freshwater fishermen and women and we can help.  The ocean goers are looking for bigger more powerful systems to add radar, weather and deep water sounders to their systems.  We can help you with whatever your marine needs are.  this all being said now it is the time for the rest of america to start thinking about spring break and where and what you want to do.  We can help with your needs for virtually any activity.  Give us a try and I will be back next week.  Check us out on Facebook and Twitter.


Just catching our breath

What a true statement we have our guys and girls running hard to go to, return from and process orders from boat show season.  Our latest was the Miami Boat Show that ended on Monday, and we had a great time there meeting people from all over and answering their questions on marine electronics from easy to hard ones.  We did manage to sell a few radars, GPS, Fishfinders, Chartplotters and everything else associated with them, from glass helms to 18′ fishing boats whether inland or offshore fishing.   It was great to have support from our manufacturers near as well.  thanks to the crews from Garmin, Furuno, Raymarine, Si-tex, and Navico, Icom, KVH, Standard Horizon, Viking and any other manufacturer I may have forgotten.  We appreciate their support and have a great deal of confidence in offering their products for sale.  We are off to the Atlantic City Boat Show next week and the show runs Feb 28 through Mar 4 and we are looking forward to it.  I will have more info next week on the show and new products that may be coming your way.
