Re: Pro Shop for sale - $6,500.00

Believe me, I'm racking my brains out. If I had a way, I'd be there already. Only around 7 hours from there. Would definately have it open more than 6 - 9 pm four days a week. I'd rename it Buzzsaw Heaven, lol.

Re: Pro Shop for sale - $6,500.00

Will if I hit the lottery, but just not able to pull it off at the moment. It'll be gone before I could do anything. If I had the extra money laying around, I'd have already been there and bought it.

I could guarentee I'd spend a whole lot more time than 3 hours a day only 4 days a week. I'd have it open from like 9:00am - 9:00 pm 7 days a week. There wouldn't be any sense in taking on something like that if you didn't plan on spending alot of time on it.

Re: Pro Shop for sale - $6,500.00

The ad says Atlanta, the video says Brandon, Florida. Which is it? The guy probably went out of business due to that ANCIENT press he has. If he is in Brandon, he has problems with a press like that. Lake Wales (Kegel) is close by. Larry Lichstein is close by. He would never get the high average bowlers and keep them unless his prices were EXTREMELY low.

The ad is from Atlanta. I live in Brandon, Fl. Lake Wales is close by? Lol, not very familiar with the area are you? Larry who? And where is close by for him, another hour or better? I can gaurentee you that there are plenty of high average bowlers here in the Tampa area that don't go running across the state to get their equipment drilled just because someone mentions Kegal. Kegal has some nice equipment and programs and such, but Kegal is all about making money and trying to run the little guy out of business. The bought out a pro shop at Seminole lanes and ruined it. They removed everything from companies that don't pay them to put it on the shelves, and the prices have gone through the roof. The local and very capable pro shops charge $30 to $40 to drill with grips $8 and slug $8 included. Kegal charges $40 - $60 to drill and $10 - $12 for grips and $12 - $15 for a slug on top of the drill price. Not many knowledgable bowlers in this area will have anything to do with Kegal, much less travel over an hour to go to them, lol.

Re: Pro Shop for sale - $6,500.00

Ok... You are in Atlanta. You never addressed the ancient drill press. That thing looks like it came RIGHT out of the 1950's. You sure as h#ll can't drill an oval on that thing.

Also, you make mention that 'ANYONE' can be a pro shop owner/operator in less than a week training. Are you kidding me! There is a ton to know & learn. I am sure you can ask other Pro Shop Operators that are on this board. I doubt any of them can tell you that someone can learn their job in a week.

Re: Pro Shop for sale - $6,500.00

Buy it all, and put it in your basement! I know two guys who did just that, and are doing quite well. One does a lot of Lane1 stuff. If the equipment is outdated, or in bad shape though, It may be too much of a gamble.

What planet are you from dude, and what is your purpose here?

Read this very slow so maybe you can understand it Jethro. I am in BRANDON, FLORIDA. The AD is from ATLANTA. I copied and pasted the ad for all to see, that is not from my own words as an interpretation of an ad that I read. Nowhere have I ever said that ANYONE can be a pro shop owner/operator with less than a weeks training so I don't know where you got that from or what you are trying to accomplish by spewing that lie. If you are looking to start an argument you can jump over to BR, they are very frequent over there and quite easy to start. But realistically, if you don't have a clue what you are talking about, don't just make shit up.

Re: Pro Shop for sale - $6,500.00

The funny part about it is I'm not buying the shop, lol. I just found the ad and copied and pasted it here for others to see in case there was someone in the area or otherwise that may be interested in it. I'm just amazed at how some people can read a simple post and not thoroughly understand what they are reading before they start making comments or statements that are totally off base compared to what the post actually say's, lol. Sometimes when I read the responses from them, I wonder if they are even reading the same post. Oh well, just another day......
