Scratch & Dent Labor Day Sale 2012
Rumors of an Indian Summer in Bend, Oregon are confirmed!
Buy a boat and enjoy the beautiful weather while you can.
Where does the term Indian Summer come from anyway? The origins most likely derive from early New England settlers who would welcome the cold weather in the fall so they could leave their stockades unarmed. But if there was a warm spell they were in for it: this is when the Native Americans knew to attack!
Luckily here in Bend, an Indian Summer is a good thing. If you feel like the summer has slipped through your fingers this year, make a commitment to get out there an enjoy the temperate fall weather. (Local hint: you’ll have it to yourself, the crowds are gone!)
Take advantage of this time of year by investing in your very own boat and getting out on Central Oregon’s lakes and rivers. Come down to Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe on Labor Day Weekend September 1, 2, and 3, 2012, and check out our Annual Scratch & Dent Sale out on the back lawn behind the shop. There will be plenty of brand-new boats and SUPs with slight imperfections available to buy at up to 40% off. Area kayak and canoe representatives will also have some boats for sale from their demo fleets.
Where do these imperfections come from? Many boats and boards are shipped clear across the country, changing hands and trucks many times. No matter how well they are packed, a few nicks sometimes occur. Another contributing factor is when a customer is considering buying a boat and they demo it and it gets a little scratch. In both these cases, the boats and boards are basically as good as new!
This event is a precursor to Tumalo Creek’s Annual 10-Day Fall Sale, which begins September 23. Paddlers will have the opportunity to peruse some of the demo boats that will be released on September 23 and pick out the vessels they hope to buy at the end of the summer.
Tumalo Creek’s Labor Day Scratch & Dent Sale is three days only, so come down to the shop, try out a few boats, and plan to take one home. There is no better time of the year to buy a kayak or can
