Default The Bow Shop in SA is Moving

Just spent a couple of hours with Fred getting limbs swapped and he told me they were moving their shop. They will be on Toepperwein Rd, just west of the RR tracks, on the south side in the business park where they have green awnings.

You can get on Toepperwein from either I-35 or Nacogdoches road.

Plans to be up and at 'em at the new location by the first of April.

I somehow missed this so just bumping as I went by old place and he wasn't there. Figured others may not know either.

Keeps moving further and further away from me. I liked it when he had his shop off of Vance Jackson.

I have not seen Fred since he was on Vance Jackson. Fred caught me wrong one day and I never went back. I been with Mesquite Archery a long time and they have been good to me.
Maybe I should give him a try again.

I'm guessing it's probably still Mathews and Mission for new bows. I haven't been over there in almost two years, though.

Fred does have a weird personality, but he is an incredibly nice guy and you won't find a more knowledgeable person about bows. I went to mesquite because I wanted to try different brands, and Fred only sells Mathews. They acted like I was ruining their day when I went in and asked to shoot two different bows. I never went back.

Their shop is on the southwest corner of Topperwein where it crosses the RR tracks. The buildings have green awnings. Just drive thru the park until you find them. I think their shop faces the RR tracks.

Corner of Topperwein and Lookout Rd. Agreed Fred and Tammy are good people and deserve our support.

For those that are going to Fred for the first time.... go when you are not crunched for time. He spends a lot of time with each person. If you are patient, when he gets to you there is nobody else I'd rather have touch my bow. He gives pointers and he is also funny as all get out!

In SA I wouldn't go anywhere but Fred. He isn't always the most personable guy but he knows his stuff and will always get you taken care of if you are patient. I bought my last bow at Mesquite and they acted like I was being annoying when I asked for help. Haven't been there since.

X10 mesquite archery was a disappointment. Didn't go over anything they did to my bow and acted as if I wasn't worthy enough to have them work on my bow. I wish Fred's new place was large enough for a 20yd range but sadly not. Either way probly the only shop in sa worth going to.
