Dear customers and friends of B&T,
When we opened the B&T Shop almost 10 years ago, we didn’t know where the journey would lead. In the first years the store was a great story. Sales remained stable and grew steadily. But in the last few years, online retail for clothes and accessories has grown rapidly.
After the successful launch of our store range a few weeks ago, we became convinced that we had to rethink our concept of stationary trade. After careful consideration, we have decided to reduce the store area and only offer weapons, ammunition and the most important accessories (such as hearing protection, eye protection, magazine pouches, holsters, backpacks) from selected brands.
In return, the Shop Range will be further expanded and upgraded to autonomous access by the end of 2022. As a registered customer, you will likely be able to book, enter and use the facility autonomously from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. beginning in the fall. Furthermore, weapons from the B&T product range will be available for rent.
This decision entails certain conversion measures. It is planned to start the conversion of the remaining store area in April 2022 and to complete it by the end of May 2022. As soon as the new part of the store is ready, the sale of the liquidation goods will start in June. Since some products will be dropped from the assortment of the stationary trade (mainly clothes, shoes and single items), you can benefit from strongly reduced prices across all kinds of brands. In return, we will do without the well-known 5.11-Days in May. Even though some items will no longer be available in the store, they can still be ordered through our online store.
Due to this restructuring we will also change the opening hours again and adapt them even more to the needs of the shooters. The next adjustment is expected to take place starting in June. We will keep you informed in this regard.
A plan always looks good on paper, but experience shows that schedules can change quickly due to unforeseen circumstances. We therefore ask for your understanding if not everything always runs smoothly and according to plan.
We are looking forward to a new future and are looking forward to welcoming you as a customer.
Your B&T Team
