The latest tackle has arrived at the new Shimano Technical Center and G.Loomis Performance Center, a dedicated ‘store within the store’ opening at TackleDirect in Egg Harbor Township, N.J.
To kick-off this concept, TackleDirect has plans for a special grand opening weekend event on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 21-22. The store is located at 6825 Tilton Road – visit www.tackledirect.com for more information and directions.
Along with showcasing the complete product line-up at the new Shimano Technical Center and G.Loomis Performance Center, those attending the weekend TackleDirect event also can visit with the Shimano Multi-Service crew. The crew will have the ‘specially-wrapped’ Shimano Toyota tow vehicle and Skeeter bass boat on display, plus can try out new Chronarch CI4+ reels and G.Loomis NRX bass rods while competing in casting contests. Experts from PowerPro will also be hand on conducting Hollow-Ace splicing clinics and knot-tying demonstrations throughout both days.
“Not only are there all kinds of activities planned for this special weekend event,” says Doug Rusch, Shimano’s New Jersey rep, “but what a great opportunity for anglers in South Jersey and those who pass through the area on their way to fishing spots from Barnegat Bay down to Atlantic City, Ocean City and Cape May.”
There also will be some special promotions available at the weekend event. TackleDirect include a free Shimano A-Flex hat with any purchase (one per family while supplies last), Shimano coupons for a free reel clean and service, plus a free raffle for a Shimano Talica 25 two-speed reel. TackleDirect will be open from 9am to 6pm on Saturday, and from 9 to 5 on Sunday. Complete event details are available at - http://www.tackledirect.com/upcoming-events-at-tackledirect.html.
