Support your LDS

Post by YellowEye » Thu Mar 12, 2020 1:16 pm

Hi
I was in a dive shop today. I heard they're struggling to run classes due to pool closures. This could be tough on their business, not being able to run classes. So if you need a new computer/drysuit/tank etc, now may be the time to buy.

Great idea. I have some tanks I can get VIP’d, filled and a few odds and ends I could use.

Absolutely. Our LDS are struggling. There are now no dive shops in Olympia, and Hoodsport Dive in the canal is up for sale.

I am very lucky to work in a dive shop that has its own pool.
Too bad we are a little too far for you guys I am sure the boss would make you a killer rental on it --- as long as our classes are not in it.
Thunder Reef in Vancouver Washington.
The only problem is our shop is super duper busy the last few months ---- Who knows what will happen now with virus hysteria.

but I agree -- Always give your LSD a chance to get close to the prices you see online --- most of the time they can do pretty good with that.
