So... did Kenlee's close? What happened to Kenny Young? I never get over that way any more. Last I saw him he was dancing at a travel show... and looked great for a "survivor"!speckle-catcher said:1. didn't Kenlee's close last year?
2. if you go into WW Diving and tell them about buying stuff off the internet, they will likely have the same coronary
it's a very small, equipment intensive sport. If you dive locally, it requires a local store to get gear serviced and buy air, etc. Don't get mad at a local store owner for defending his livelyhood.
you can't keep a local store open selling only lessons and air.
And every opportunity to fill your 6 tanks brings an opportunity for "point of purchase" sales even if nothing else.dryespo said:Tanks are a commodity these days... I just picked a few up here in Dallas at Scubatoys (scubatoys.com) for 134
I bet most shops will negoatiate for 6 and most also will do an air card with it .
This goes again with my philosopy of staying close to home.
I know that Art and his shop closed last year, and he had some involvement with the Kenlees West years ago before buying Discover from Duncan.speckle-catcher said:I don't know if Kenlee's closed or not. I don't ever get down that way anymore. I haven't seen Kenny or David Bullard in years.
I remember last year or so someone posting that KL's was having a going out of business sale"
I'm not dreaming this up - cause I wanted to go down to check out all the stuff from the back...the place was a frickin musuem of recreational diving history.
Great to hear! I have always heard good things about them, and I had good dealings with them dating back to the R & R days. I need a great LDS like that near me!divin deep said:after much debate and many phone calls, the 6 tanks where bought last night at ww diving in Humble. This was my first time in there and as I walked in I was shocked and awed at the amounty of gear that was in that store. Yvonne was very helpful and matched the lowest price I could find on the tanks. She did so good on the price that I ordered another Riffe Hawiian because the price was so good. I think I just found my new favorite LDS. I have been diving this area for 12 years now and didn't even know they where there, so I will have to give them the nod when someone asks which shop to go to.
