el­e­ment to be­come an H&J s Out­door World!

Same great store, same awe­some sta but a NEW NAME!

Central Otago Mirror - - CENTRAL NEWS -

el­e­ment has been a corner­stone of the out­door spe­cial­ist stores in Queen­stown for the past 7 years, but as of Thurs­day, el­e­ment will be be­com­ing an H&J s Out­door World. Jamie Bar­ton, Out­door Division Man­ager for H&J Smith is look­ing for­ward to the change. What our Queen­stown cus­tomers may not be aware of is that we ve had an H&J s Out­door World in In­ver­cargill for the past 40 years. Link­ing the two busi­nesses closer to­gether was an ob­vi­ous choice to make sure that we have the best o er for our cus­tomers. As part of the new store, H&J s Out­door World Queen­stown has be­come part of the Gun City fam­ily along with the Avan Plus store. The name change gives us an op­por­tu­nity to cel­e­brate the last 7 years in Queen­stown, plus look for­ward to the next 7 (or 20 years)! Bar­ton said. As part of the cel­e­bra on, H&J s Out­door World is giv­ing cus­tomers the op­por­tu­nity to win over $7,500 worth of prizes, in­clud­ing nd­ing a rearm priced at $1 in the new Gun City gun rack. The gun goes on sale at 9am on Satur­day and we re look­ing for­ward to a lot of the lo­cals com­ing out to try their luck!

Gun City new to H&J s Out­door World Queen­stown

The new­est edi on to the Gun City fam­ily, H&J s Out­door World Queen­stown is now up and run­ning. Started in 1978 by Dave Tip­ple, Gun City and H&J s Out­door World In­ver­cargill have been work­ing to­gether for the past 21 years. Cen­tral Otago is a keen hun ng area so for H&J s Out­door World Hunt Man­ager, Stephen Boyle, the de­ci­sion for Gun City to be in the Queen­stown store was ob­vi­ous. Be­ing part of the Gun City fam­ily will al­low us to have a be er stock range and take greater ad­van­tage of di­rect im­por ng to give our cus­tomers the best prod­ucts with the best deals. Boyle is look­ing for­ward to grow­ing the Gun City busi­ness in Queen­stown with a strong team of hunt spe­cial­ists at the helm.

Avan Plus go­ing strong

With the largest range of bikes in Queen­stown, Avan Plus at H&J s Out­door World has some­thing to suit ev­ery bud­get and ambi on. Tops brands in­clud­ing Sco , Avan (as rid­den by Ali­son Shanks and the New Zealand women s track team at the lat­est Olympics) , ABD (what Sarah Walker rides) and Raleigh mean that ev­ery­thing from the most sophis cated road rac­ing ma­chines to Down­hill, X-Coun­try and kid s bikes are there for keen riders to try out. Led by Ryan Black, a keen mul -dis­ci­pline rider, the Avan Plus Queen­stown team is look­ing for­ward to be­com­ing an H&J s Out­door World. We work closely with the H&J s team in In­ver­cargill and the name change re­ally ce­ments our rela on­ship. H&J s Out­door World Queen­stown spon­sors a num­ber of lo­cal riders in­clud­ing Bre Din­gle, Gi­ulio Chap­manOlla (triathlons and mul sport) and Clay­ton Gib­son (moun­tain biking).
