Offshore is entering our 37th year in business this year, and undergoing a passing of the baton from one set of hands to another. Starting this winter, Fritz Hanselman will step back from running the business and spend more time on the water, while the new management team takes care of revamping the store's promotional and marketing efforts, with the changeover complete sometime later this year.
We'll also be moving a couple of doors down to a new space in the same building. The signage on the new space will be easier to see from the entrance on Nagle Court, while still offering us enough space to show off our (sometimes large...) inflatables, canoes, and kayaks.
In the meantime, we'll again be at the Chicago Boat/Strictly Sail Show at McCormick Place starting January 14th, showing off the latest in boats from Highfield Inflatables, and with some killer deals on overstock kayaks and stand up paddleboards.
