NOW OPEN (Island Outfitters Fall Newsletter 2020)

Posted by on


Here at Island Outfitters we are thrilled to announce that we open as of Friday, October 9 at 9:00am! After working tirelessly with our staff, family, and friends (we could not have done it without you), we are excited to be opening our doors once again. Thank you to everyone who has helped us here at Island Outfitters get back open.  

To all of you, our customers, thank you for your patience over the last few months.  We have been blown away by the amount of loyalty our customers have shown towards Island Outfitters and we could not be more grateful.  We are thrilled to be re-opening and cannot wait to see you all soon. Thank you for staying with us over the years.

For those with past gift cards, we will continue to honour them. Thank you for your patience.


A little bit about Island Outfitters...

Shortly after opening in 1994, Island Outfitters outgrew their small store on Roderick Street leading to the move to Douglas Street, where the store had been for the last 20 years. Now, a start of a new chapter in a new location: 1681A Island Highway.  We hope that you love the new location as much as we do.

Come down to the new store and check out what we have been working on.  Although you will see lots of your favorite gear in store already, you may be looking for something that we do not have in yet. Don't worry as we are continuing to stock our shelves with more inventory coming in each day, and we cannot wait to see you. 

Store Hours:

Monday 9:00am – 6:00pm

Tuesday 9:00am – 6:00pm

Wednesday 9:00am – 6:00pm

Thursday 9:00am – 6:00pm

Friday 9:00am – 7:00pm

Upcoming Events:

As we get back into the rhythm, we are looking forward to many of our annual events.  A couple that are coming up in the next little while are:

Grand Opening

We will be having a Grand Opening Sale at the end of October, stay tuned for lots of details to come!

COVID-19

We have fully reopened and we need your support now more than ever!  We are slowly (and cautiously) restocking inventory and trying to get back into a normal rhythm. Rest assured that we have put all the recommended measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety.  To view our safety plan, please click here: https://www.fishingvictoria.com/news/posts/covid-19-safety-plan
