One of the longest serving businesses in Bruce County has decided to close its doors.
“It’s a perfect storm,” says Lake Huron Rod & Gun owner, Brad Thomas. “COVID-19 has resulted in a major loss in sales, the government’s changes to gun laws have made a difference and my own health .. they all have created the perfect time to shut down.”
On June 26th, 1976, Lake Huron Rod & Gun owner, father Brian Thomas opened the doors in Underwood that became a major supply outlet for anglers and hunters through Grey-Bruce and beyond.
Son, Brad Thomas, carried on the family business but has decided to end the family legacy. “We are selling off our stock. I have a major knee problem and also want to spend more time with my family … so the time has come.”
