It was just a matter of time...shouldn't mix business with politics. That may not be all that did it but It sure didn't help either. You think??

I would like to see Ray open it back up. He knows a lot more about guns and has a better attitude.

I thought he said he was retiring; but if this is true; than it appears that there is some similarity to who he hangs with.

I am a small business owner, and I agree with you 100%. If I started talking my political beliefs to a customer that I knew little about I risk losing business. All small business owners need to practice this, as a customer will not spend their money in a place they feel endorses a side of politics opposite of their own. Common sense.

Rumor has that the Bicycle store on 801, about one mile from Farmers,, towards the lake, MAY be going under too.

What?!?!?! I feel like Ive been lied to. You mean Ed wasnt selling 30 guns a day, the only store in 10 counties that had any inventory, and didnt make $200k profit selling the store. You mean he didnt even own the building? Ray is knowledgeable, but how many gun stores has he worked at go under.

Location was the reason he went out of business.May have been alright for a bait and tackle shop,being so close to the lake.And there are about four others around Morehead selling camo.He is blaming everyone else for a failed business.Plus he should have keep politics out of the store.

Well I run a small business not far from that former gun store and drive by daily. The longer things went on the more signs for his favorite politicians I seen, and the fewer cars I seen in his parking lot. Often times he had 1 or no cars (not counting what the owner drove) when open. It's hunting season, go figure where his customer base went too, he once had a pretty packed lot!

I heard they are going bankrupt becasue an individual that worked for the high school posted false allegations about him here on topix. Then that individual, Andy Conyers made a complaint to the FBI which resulte in an ATF investigation. The subsequet BATF investigation cleared the Camo Store, hell they even went to JB to ask them some questions about the gun part in question. Turns out the camo store didnt even sell this item! Oh yeah and Andy Conyers made posts on topix while working from the school so superintendent moore is involved (heard that Mr. Eddins approached him personally in his office). The incident also cause them to lose thier government contract. All I can say is that Im a close friend and the state, Rowwan County and Andy conyers will paying for this one for a long time. Oh yeah and since the incident they have wiped all thier computers in the Rowan COunty School System - imagine that. I know that Mr. Eddins has not less than 3 lawyers on retainer to sue after the banruptcy is resolved.
LMAO. Good luck with that.

I disagree about his location, I do agree with his politics hurting his sales. Partially because I live close to there, I feel the location was fine. But, have you seen the NEW Dollar Store on US60 / 801? They are packing the customers in! Crowded parking lot, long lines. So if LOCATION was the problem with the gun store, then he was only about 200 feet from being in a great location!! Wait and see, that new Dollar Store will be in business for years, based on the current rate of customers. There is actually a good deal of traffic going by the former gun store. And there are plenty of hunters in and around Farmers.

And you wonder why he went bankrupt!!!!!! THREE LAWYERS on retainer. He needs counseling in business management if he thinks he needs no less than THREE LAWYERS.
