After retiring from the military in 2008, we moved back home searching for our next adventure. We opened a part-time small engine repair shop which we worked from our attached garage in St-Pierre-Jolys called MTRC.
In 2010, we moved just outside of town with the intent of opening a full-time shop. We operated under the name of Rat River Sales and Service.
Slowly, we began incorporating firearms and hunting supplies to our inventory. We were able to switch the direction of our business by dropping small engine repair to becoming a full on hunting store.
It quickly became obvious that we were running out of space. In 2017, we made the plunge and expanded our store with a new 30ft by 40ft addition. We also added new departments to the store like fishing and trapping supplies.
