We have some news to tell you about. Pam and I have decided to put the Fishermen’s Net up for sale. This was not an easy thing to decide. We have been going back and forth on the idea for some time now. It is important for us to find the right person or people, this business is our baby. We need to find someone who will grow and succeed at what we started, (maybe even do a better job) We know that could take time.
So let us be clear: We have no intention of closing. DID you read that ?? We aren’t going anywhere
until we have someone who can continue what we started. We have a long plan all figured out, in case this takes years. 🙂 We are nervous that as the news spreads people will think we are closing, or something is wrong and stop coming to see us. So PLEASE be sure to pass along the info that we are here until we sell. We are great, Love what we do and will find someone who will do a great job. (thanks)
It is important to us that you all know what we are planning for the future. You have made this such a wonderful business. YOU are what we will miss the most, and what made this decision so difficult for both of us. It just didn’t feel right having you hear about it from someone else, and we wanted to make sure you all had the correct information.
And who knows, maybe one of you would love to do what we do, and want to buy the business.
We know a lot of you will wonder why? There are a few reasons that tipped the scale to this decision, these few are at the top:
Pam would like to retire soon, spend time with her grandchildren- before they are all grown up.
Stephanie would like to start a family, and if lucky enough would like to devote the majority of her time to them.
We have been established here in Gray for a good long time. (just started year 10). Our business is profitable & growing. With the Narrow Gauge Railroad arriving just down the street, it will only grow more.
These things make it feel like now is the right time to sell. This is bitter sweet for both of us. We are excited about the changes that may be on the horizon for us. But we love being here with all of you, this is a great community and we are proud to be a part of it. We are also proud of what we have done here, it’s a good business.
*If you are interested in buying the Fishermen’s Net- swing in, or call. We can set up a time to show you what happens behind the scenes, the numbers and what we have accomplished.
See you soon,
Steph and Pam
