Double Lung Archery Inc. is growing. The Archery Pro Shop, which opened its doors to the public in La Porte City in 2007, will be opening a store at a new location in Mason City later this year.
“I have purchased a 3,900 square foot building located at 1619 S Federal Avenue in Mason City,” owner Dave Stueve said.
Stueve noted the new store, which he hopes to have open sometime between February 15th and March 1st, will have the same comprehensive lineup of bows as the La Porte City location, including Hoyt, Mathews, PSE, Mission and Elite. The Mason City store will also be carrying arrows from Carbon Express, Victory, Carbon Force Radial X Weave, Easton and Beman. Along with a wide range of products from which to choose, Stueve added that customers can expect the same top-notch service and accessories in Mason City that his La Porte City location has provided over the last eight years.
Once the new store is open, Stueve expects to split his time between the two stores. Local customers should fear not, however.
“La Porte City will always be my headquarters and main hub,” he said.
To support his growing enterprise, Stueve has hired Christian Shropshire, who will work at the La Porte City store along with Ryan Sedgewick. Stueve also expects to hire additional staff for the Mason City location.
“Christian is an avid bow hunter and outdoorsman and will fit right in.”
“It has always been my goal to expand Double Lung Archery Inc. to include multiple locations, and this is the just the first step toward that end goal,” he added.
