I wanted to share some news with you, which is hard to say so I'm glad I can do so here instead of in person. Due to the sustained strain of the oil & gas downturn, coupled with the growing competition from online retailers we have decided after 63 years of business to close Sam's Safety Equipment. It's not an easy decision, but it's one that Larry and I felt was right for us and our team. I'm extremely proud of the work our team has done over these years and the opportunity to not only grow up in this business since I was born, but also to work alongside my dad for 10 years. It's been a labor of love at times with my Dad, and ultimately it's been the defining experience of my professional life and my relationship with him. Something that I'm extremely grateful for.
That being said, we will be closing this summer and liquidating our inventory beginning today. We're offering 25% off everything in the store and selling anything that isn't nailed down. Come by 8AM-6PM, Monday-Friday to get these deals while they last. We'll no longer be open on Saturdays unfortunately.
P.S. Aside from the liquidation I want to find jobs for our staff, so if your company is hiring then please let me know.
