NHIP, GSP, Tradeout Paintball all closing
To our valued customers:
Rumors started to circle Sunday morning about NHIP closing its doors for good. The rumors are true, Mark Hogue the owner is closing up shop at the end of the month and moving to Florida to semi retire. As owner of Tradeout Paintball I would like to publicly thank him for everything he has done in support of my endeavors in the sport. As a customer I will miss the field
and my friends their greatly. As a store owner Mark not only gave me my start up capital, believed in me, but also guided me through the difficulties of owning a business. He has also become one of my closest friends and confidants, and for that he has my eternal gratitude.
As for the Tradeout; the store currently resides inside NHIP and will not have the capital to keep up with the rent of such a large building. Further more I do not have the time necessary to run the whole field. For now the store will need to close. We will have a fire sale in conjunction with Break and Run Billiards outside of NHIP the weekend of the 25th and 26th. For anyone who is on the fence about getting gear, this will be the sale to hit. Anyone looking for something specific from our inventory is encouraged to visit me before the sale but every item in the store will be up for sale that weekend including many of the antiques we have collected over the last 3 years.
I would like to personally thank our customers for their continued support. Without you their wouldn't be a store. For everyone who bought equipment from me with the expectation of a warranty, the stores phone number has always been my personal number. I will continue to offer customer service from my home for the equipment I sold. In the mean time I will look for a new home for the store, which I intend to reopen if we can find a location that makes financial sense. Mark and I also continue to discuss the fate of GSP and I will keep customers informed as to its fate as well.
To all my friends, family, and customers who made the field and store a place I called HOME and not a job.....Thank you
Owner and Operator of Tradeout Paintball.
