April 29th was their last day of business. I knew the owner personally and according to what he told me, it was a combination of several things that led to his decesion to close the doors.

The main thing that hurt his business, was the down-turn in the mining industry. They sold a LOT of diesel/battery powered mine buggy/personel carrier parts. That was the backbone of their business.

Combine that, with the week economy in general, the fact that the store is now off the beaten path (not 119 like it use to be) and the the new store Wide Open Outdoors opened up a few miles away,... made for it tough for them to turn a profit.

It's really sad as they've been there since 1988.(25yrs)

I had done quite a bit of business for with LC Equipment over the years. Bought a lot of motorcycle parts there and was always happy with their price and service. Hate to see them go. But it seems the little guy just doesn't have a chance these days in ANY market.
