    Here is a little interview from thegunblog.ca

    TheGunBlog.ca — Bullseye London, a major Canadian independent gun shop, is tripling in size as “very high levels of growth” for firearms, ammo and accessories offset concern over gun bans.

    The company continues to oppose the governing Liberal Party’s plans to order mass gun confiscations against federally licensed stores and hundreds of thousands of firearm owners.

    Following is an interview with Scott Patience, the owner of the store in London, Ontario, about 190 km southwest of Toronto.

    Why It Matters

    Bullseye London is tripling in size as other gun shops scale down.
    Patience takes us behind the scenes of a major business decision: scaling up as the government plans laws that threaten to wipe out stores and kill thousands of jobs.
    He shares how Bullseye London is responding.

    Q&A With Bullseye London CEO Scott Patience

    Store Expansion

    Why the expansion? Why now?
    Our current location is 4,500 square feet. We expanded from one to three units without the ability to lay out space for optimum efficiency for both the retail and rear support.

    The business continues to grow in sales, inventory levels and staffing.

    We need more space to improve our efficiency to deliver quality service to the shooting community.

    We looked around and found a 14,000 square-foot unit that is ideally located to meet our needs for the foreseeable future.

    Ideal locations do not come on the market that often. It was time and it was available. Our customers and staff are all excited.

    “Bullseye continues to experience very high levels of growth, which is the main reason we need to get this new larger space so urgently.”

    What’s it like to make a move like this?
    There are several aspects of making a move like this that are invisible.

    Besides having the mechanical HVAC, electrical, plumbing designed, permits are required.

    We did a detailed review of every aspect of our operation, both now and the future.

    Cabinets designed and store layout repeatedly reviewed to smooth retail operations. Support staff and inventory needs are established too. That is the physical side of the operation.

    Then there are the product lines that will be in the store. We plan to add many product lines that will be well received by the shooting community.

    Finally, the actual move to the new location will require the shutdown of the store for a few days so we can focus on setting up the new store.

    How is Bullseye London doing versus the overall market? Some stores are doing well, some are struggling.
    Bullseye continues to experience very high levels of growth, which is the main reason we need to get this new larger space so urgently.

    I very much believe the new product lines and more actual inventory will increase our growth as we provide firearms enthusiasts with a big exciting store that has them in mind specifically.

    “If the misguided Liberal proposals do come to pass, we have plans to help our fellow firearms-community members make the most-informed decisions and continue the fight.”


    About Bullseye

    Do you have a particular focus on any regions, products or activities?

    Our retail store definitely caters to customers all over southwest Ontario, while our online store reaches across the country.

    We tend to sell about the same number of “Restricted” firearms as “Non-restricted,” while accessories make up the balance.

    Mostly we sell larger amounts of ammunition locally, but we have customers that rely on us to provide harder-to-get calibres.

    Business Trends

    How was business in 2019 for you? A lot of gun shops had a roller-coaster year.
    2019 was another great year, but also a building year as we suffered from a lack of physical space, and now May is coming quick for the new store.

    Fun fact about the new store is that the front vestibule is exactly the same size as our whole original store back in the computer shop six years ago.

    How is business looking for 2020?
    2020 will be exciting as we enjoy the larger space and having large selections of safes, apparel and products that are hard to find in Canada.

    I can remember when Bullseye was an impossible to find gun shop in a hidden strip mall inside an electronics store on Adelaide Street.

    I can hardly wait until the 'new' store opens.

    Excellent work! Keep it up!
