It looks like they are no longer in the sporting goods business. They have U-haul trucks, tanning beds, and antiques. I think they need a name change!!!!

It is a real shame what the City of Princeton is trying to do to Mr Douglas. This family has had a business in Princeton for many years. They supported many families over the years, contributed to the economy for many years and now since they are down, the city wants to put them plum out of business. If the Fire Department is concerned about human lives they should shut down over 90% of all the residence in Princeton that have all the old wiring and fuse boxes, old heating systems that do not meet code. A lot of the inspectors were not even born when Douglas's was a thrieving business. I was at the Methodist Church Saturday at a ball game and could not believe what I saw, the stage is where the bleacher are and no railing present at the edge of the stage. It has a four or five foot drop that is not protected. Someone could really get hurt bad in this situation. Where was the city code inspectors when this Gynm was built only a few years ago. Good Luck Marlin Douglas

report the places that are unsafe, give the city of princeton something to due. They are useless.

They started to crack down on parking in the fire lane when they needed money. Too bad they didn't do it all along, yet they were too lazy!! Now they are hurting people who run a good business.

The city of princeton is useless, it's proven that more people are leaving this state than staying.

You can go out of this state and it's clean and nice, anywhere you go in this state its dirty and trashy!!

For the last several years this was a sad excuse for a sporting goods store . Walmart and internet shopping killed it
like to hunt

Princeton, WV

#23 Jan 12, 2010
Walmart sure didn't kill it. They don't carry much.
My boyfriend hates to go there for anything hunting wise,he goes to B&G,H&S, or Doves.But I do hate that they went out of business.It has been around for years.
