What's great for my growing inventory of outdoors stuff but bad for my wallet will take another turn sometime this month.
A spokeswoman for Ashland-based Goschinski's Fin, Feather and Fur Outfitters said the company will open its new Middleburg Heights store off Bagley Road within the next few weeks.
Fin, Feather and Fur is just like a Cabela's or a Bass Pro Shop's retail store but minus the gingerbread accessory of a mountain of wildlife mounts and massive aquarium filled with sport fish.
What it does have is a huge inventory of firearms, fishing tackle, camping gear and hunting equipment with monthly sales.
Given that the nearest Bass Pro Shop or Cabela's is nearly 3 hours away each, having something close at hand within 45 minutes or so will mean less money spent on fuel for the car and that much more cash to buy outdoors stuff.
As it now stands - I believe - Fin, Feather and Fur is Ohio's largest firearms dealer.
I'm looking forward to having yet one more place to spend my paycheck.
