West Marine will celebrate the grand opening Aug. 15-16 of its newest location in Melbourne, Fla.
West Marine's newest store, spanning 10,000 square feet, is the company's largest in Brevard County and offers a full selection of fishing, electronics, boating and trailering supplies. Store manager Eric Sorrell brings more than 20 years of boating and fishing experience to his post. He joined West Marine four years ago while attending the Florida Institute of Technology.
"In total, our team of West Marine associates has more than 150 years of boating and fishing experience, including experts like Christian Foster - our venerable assistant manager - who has been sailing most of his life, and is very eager to assist customers in need of supplies and accessories for a day cruise on the ICW, or a fish in the Indian River," Sorrell said in a statement.
The grand-opening celebration will feature special discounts and prize giveaways, including $100 West Marine gift cards, GPS units and more.
