Adam’s Tarp and Tool will soon open a new store in Langford.
The store, at 2902 Jacklin Rd., will open Nov. 9.
“It’s going to be a soft opening at first,” says Byron Blow, who co-owns the company with Adam Ryder. “There will be all kinds of changes in the next two months. There is still much work to be done. We need to modernize the building and beautify the area.”
A grand opening event will be held from November 25 to 26.
“We have postponed a grand opening to be as prepared as possible,” Blow said. “There will be all kinds of reruns, deals and prices here. Now is the best time to check out the new location. Our goal is to do our best to have a lot of stock for our customers.”
Ryder has wanted a store in Langford since 2008.
“There’s just a lack of locations here,” Blow added. “It is expensive and difficult to find real estate. This location finally became available, so we jumped on it right away. This has all happened in the past two months.”
Adam’s Tarp and Tool plans to continue to expand and have a store in every major city on Vancouver Island.
“The growth of our company has made this possible,” explains Blow.
The company plans to open multiple locations in Greater Victoria in the near future. “We’ve been told this area is understaffed and expanding,” Blow added.
Blow believes Nanaimo and Courtenay will soon have Adam’s Tarp and Tool stores as well.
There are currently stores in Duncan, Chemainus and Campbell River.
