The outdoor equipment store located on Ross Clark Circle has been in business for the last 10 years. Their Facebook post reads:
"It is with much sadness that we must announce, that this Friday we will close our retail doors for the final time. This was not an easy decision, and is one we are very much broken hearted over. We would like to thank each and every person that has shopped with us and supported us over the past 10 years. It has been a blessing to be a part of the hunting and fishing community here in the Wiregrass To each and every one of you that we see on a daily, weekly and monthly basis, you will surely be missed.
While our retail doors are closing, Sportsman's Outfitters will continue to operate it's e-commerce and call center operations. You can find us online atwww.sportsmansoutfitters.com or on ebay and Amazon with the sellerid, sportsmansoutfitters
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for the best 10 years of our lives, and we look forward to continuing to serve you through our online and call center sales."
Sportsman's Outfitters is one of three businesses in the Dothan area that has announced their closing this week. Tib-A-Dor’s Station in downtown Dothan confirmed in today's Dothan Eagle that they shut down last week after eight months of businesses.
Owner Tony Rosetta told that Eagle that he and his wife were closing to devote more time to their family. Rosetta is a Methodist pastor and his wife is a teacher. They took on the project as a way to help the homeless by giving them jobs and helping them to get back on their feet.
Dakota Coffee Works is closing their downtown location. Owner Ron McGhee told the Eagle last week that it was due to rising operating costs and slow business at that location. McGhee says he will continue to operate his other Dothan location near Flower's Hospital and his Enterprise location.
