    Thumbs up New gun shop coming to State College

    Coming this spring...

    http://www.statecollege.com/news/loc...store,1482672/


    National Sporting Arms, a firearms and accessories store, will open this spring in Patton Township, the central Pennsylvania company's third location.

    Located at 355 Colonnade Boulevard, Suite A, the store is expected to have a soft opening in late April with a grand opening in May, said Wade Stubanas, National's marketing manager. The space was previously home to Jezebel's Boutique and is currently undergoing renovations.

    National Sporting Goods, the company's first store, is in Jersey Shore. About three years ago the owners purchased the former Tripoli's Triggers in Williamsport and developed the National Range & Armory, an indoor range offering competitions, leagues, trainings and a storefront.

    Stubanas said the Centre Region market was an obvious one for expansion because of the general scarcity of gun shops in the immediate State College area, the accessibility of the Colonnade property, and the population size.

    "The best way that it was put to me was that State College has more potential customers within its area than the current existing two stores combined," he said. "Itís an untapped market and itís far enough away from the existing stores that it represents a new geographic area for us."

    National Sporting Arms will carry many industry-leading brands with products for a spectrum of firearms owners, from competition handguns, to sporting shotguns and rifles to personal defense, as well as ammo and accessories.

    The new establishment's website is already up: https://nationalsportingarms.com/

    According to the website: "National is a team of sporting goods stores serving shooting enthusiasts across central Pennsylvania. We provide the finest customer service while offering competitive pricing & excellent value. Our other stores are located in Williamsport & Jersey Shore."

    Today is the first day this store will be open.

    I have not been to their Williamsport range/store location, but I used to go to the original store location in Jersey Shore quite a bit when I lived closer.

    Will be checking out this State College location soon.

    Adam has really done some great things with the National name since he took over years ago. I couldn't be happier for him and it is well deserved. Can't wait to check out the newest shop!

    You know, with all the things going on right now, I have completely forgotten about this store, even though I am the OP... But thanks for reminding me, and glad they get to open on time -- just as we move to "Yellow" alert, too. Will be checking it out!

    I have bought ammo, reloading supplies and accessories from National in Jersey Shore, PA for years. I was never impressed with their prices except for on sale items which were great but there is one thing that stands out about National. The staff at Jersey Shore has always treated me well. Never pushy. Always friendly and all of them know their stuff. It's why I go back and why I'll visit the State College location.
