I see on the website, Golf Town is opening up to our southern neighbours!
I really hope though, that this doesn't become a Futureshop/Best Buy debacle again.

Maybe they're buying up a few Golf Galaxy's. I'm hoping this causes the prices to come down in Canada.

I can say that GolfTown is one of my clients and they are making a SMALL move into the US. They are not looking to compete with GolfGalaxy, Dicks, but fill a void where those stores currently are not.

Oh good, this is great news.
I really don't want them to overstep their market share.

I'm sure they wont be opening in any PGA Superstore cities for sure. Wonder if their stores will be as big as the Canadian ones.

I also wonder how they're going to price their clubs... As in: since the clubs they sell are more expensive in Canada, will they be the same down in the US, or comparatively less.

They opened today in Boston.

They're smart in putting them just outside of the acceptable driving range from the border.
If they were to drop them in Seattle I bet you'd be down there every weekend :alien:

I usually go shopping in that area 2-3 times a year if possible, but for the difference, I don't think it's worth driving there for that only. Groceries and gas are another story though...

If you really wanted one I'm sure I or a fellow Canuck could ship it down to you, (would probably cost you a pretty penny though)

Thanks for the offer, shipping would be pretty high!! I'm hoping they'll expand the selection to include some US teams instead of just the Canadian.

From what I can tell off of the Golftown website, there are tons of US team branded sticks.

Yep, the sticks are pretty common, I can even get them in my local sporting goods store... my girlfriend's dad has an Islander one (Gross.)

Never been in one of their stores. Are they bigger, better than say Golf Galaxy or Golfsmith? Those are the only two that are close to me, within a hours drive in Indy.
