Cooler weather had to come and here it is

Yes indeed, we are experiencing cool weather for the rest of this week but it is still going to be close to 70 today with Carolina Blue Sky. A great place to live for the weather and I am happy to be here for it. Fishing tournaments are still happening and our Scott is expected to participate in one this weekend if the offshore weather forecast continues and let’s hope it does. We are definitely in the lull before the storm that happens during the holiday season. We get our last vacations in and get rested so we are in peak condition when answering the questions we receive. I have to tell you that I am not happy today because we had ordered a trailer to transport our equipment to ad from boat shows, about three months ago and went to pick it up yesterday in Charlotte and they did not have it, and offered no excuses or inducements to purchase another. Simply the worst customer service that I have ever seen. I did all the work in purchasing the trailer and I have yet to hear from the sales rep, not one peep. Well on that I hope everyone has a great weekend and stays safe. I will write again next week.

Sorry I am late…..

It has been a while since I posted here but I want to keep the readers up with what is going on at the GPS Store. We are back from the Annapolis Sail Boat Show and are gearing up for the holiday season for 2017 all the while finishing our third warehouse expanding our storage for inventory. Wow we are really growing, I remember when I started at The GPS Store we only had one warehouse and leased space to a Radio Shack. Times have changed and for the better I must say. I can’t help telling you that I will be on my way to Lebanon, Oh tomorrow to pick up my new Mustang and I am really excited about that. I ordered it to my specifications over one month ago and hope it looks great because I know the performance will be there. I am taking Garmin’s DriveLuxe 51 to direct me so I will be able to post an in depth review early next week on how it performs. I hope you all have a great weekend and I promise to post more frequently to the USNav blog. Take care and I will be back next week.

Touch down and turn around

Seems like that would be an appropriate statement for what The GPS Store is doing now. We are back from our final boat show of 2017 and getting those orders out the door to our customers, and at the same time receiving product and moving things around for our holiday season in 2017. Yes it is a different mindset for our sales staff, instead of discussing the features of a $4000.00 chartplotter we now have to explain the features on an Automotive GPS for our customers. Don’t get me wrong we enjoy explaining both because a customer who understands what they are receiving is a happy customer. We try to match our customers needs with the correct device whether it is selecting the right auto GPS for Grandma or the proper black box to add to Dad’s marine network so he can catch more fish. Well I am going to see if there is anything I can do to help out with getting our Annapolis sales orders placed and shipped to our customers. I will back later so stay safe.
