Going Out of Business Sale


Recommended Posts

Unfortunately Kerry Guptil and his wife made the decision last Sunday to close their small family business Suncook Canoe and Kayak shop in Barnstead, N.H. just off of route 28. I've known Kerry for a number of years and bought most of my paddling gear from him. He is a very knowledgeable paddler who treated the paddling community and his customers with fairness and true service.

For openers, all people who have something in the works with him such as a custom order or repair work to a boat will have those commitments met by him. What is going to happen is that he will be open the rest of this week (Oct. 14th-16th) then it will be weekends only after this Friday. Basically the plan is to sell off everything from their present location, then in January move what is left back to their original small 400 sq foot building next to their home where they originally started in. At that point he plans on still doing boat repairs and there is a small chance he might operate on a very small scale by appointment only. During the weekdays you might find him at the garage adjacent to his shop as he will be a mechanic there, but if you are thinking about visiting the shop it is best to try to go there during his present going out of business posted hours.

From this point forward all kayaks, paddles, pfd's, drysuits, footwear, variety of quality paddle wear and accessories are deeply discounted. For example he has two brand new P&H fiberglass kayaks from their Venture series (rubber hatches and skeg) that are just over 1K (below his cost). On the boat side there is still a good selection of everything from simple rec boats to 17 ft. composites, plus a nice selection of white water kayaks. On the clothing side it is all high quality products and for now most sizes represented.

Directions are take Route 28 north from the Epsom traffic circle east of Concord, N.H. where route 28 and 4 meet then go about 7 or 8 miles north on Rt. 28 from the circle. Take a right onto 126 then immediately take your first right and it is the first business on the right. Their phone number is 603-269-5185
