Coal Creek Armory II

This makes no sense to me:
"SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT! Coal Creek Armory is opening a new location 1 mile off I-40 on Gallaher Road in Kingston TN! The new location will offer everything our Knoxville store has including an indoor A/C & Heated range!"
So they are opening a store between Frontier Firearms and the interstate?

  2. What about their new store makes "no sense?"

    Why only have half the pie if the whole pie is available and unspoken for? Frontier has been on the ropes for a while now. CCA is only moving in and assuring that their brand is cemented while putting Frontier on the canvas once and for all.

  3. I can't speak for Frontier's financial health, but I assumed they were in okay shape based on the recent move. Maybe that was a bad assumption.

    But, given that assumption, I would think there are other areas around Knoxville that don't have a gun store/indoor range that would be more profitable and less risky due to competition within a mile.

  4. Cannot say as though I get it either... unless this was just all a finely-tuned misdirection.

    Going up against the new facility Frontier built seems... odd.

    I can't understand why this move "makes no sense" to either of you. It's obvious to me that Frontier is in serious trouble seeing how they've been hemorrhaging not only staff members but also customers.

  6. At the risk of repeating myself... I can't speak for Frontier's financial health, but I assumed they were in okay shape based on the recent move. Maybe that was a bad assumption.
