A huge tackle shop is set to open in the UK, with a total floor space that is twice the size of a football pitch.
The new store, located on the outskirts of Newark, in Notts, will be one of the largest in England once it’s fully constructed, offering over 12,000 sq ft in tackle to anglers to purchase.
The project is the brainchild of Tony Porter, the entrepreneur behind Future Fishing Ltd, who cane up with the idea for a massive expansion after his existing tackle shop was unable to cope and keep up with demand.
Tony Porter told Angling Times that “Our shop is just not big enough to house all the stock and keep up with the amount of custom we have been getting, so we have no choice but to expand.”
The two-storey store will feature a lure demonstration tank, advice desk and a bivvy bag village.
“We want to provide the help and advice of a small high street tackle shop with the stock and products of a superstore,” he added.
“I want to make sure that all types of angler, from predator to carp, have a range of products to view, try and buy. They deserve a decent shopping experience.”
Tony intends to open the tackle shop to the public in March 2016 and has already started selling online, via their newly launched website.
