Weather Report from Slim Shambles

Hang to your hat grandma. Its going to be cold and snowy winter. Check out the latest predictions for winter 2017 from the Old Farmers Almanac. Get your storm chips and Chinese food people and don.t forget a trip to the M.A.R.S. Store to stock up on all your ATV, Snowblower, Snowmobile and Winter tire needs.

ANNUAL WEATHER SUMMARY: NOVEMBER 2016 TO OCTOBER 2017

Winter temperatures will be below normal, (that means COLD people) with the coldest periods in mid- and late December, mid- to late January, and mid-February. Snowfall and precipitation will be near or above normal, (that means a shovel won’t cut the mustard, It’s snow blower time!!) with the snowiest periods in mid- and late December, early to mid- and late January, and mid- and late February (and that means FUN FUN FUN!!!! snowmobiling and ATVing whoop, whoop!!)

Thanks from Jason Tozer

Jason Tozer personally thanked our sales associate Shelly Scott for offering Peace of Mind with his purchase of his new Arctic Cat 700. Jason purchase our Peace of Mind Service Package. Jason just drops his bike off and leaves the keys. When we’re done he picks the bike up and he’s off. He said it was so nice to get his bike serviced and not have to worry about fees!

Tourist alive and well according to Slim Shambles

Tourism is alive and well in Amherst N.S……I’m telling ya they are coming from all over and leaving their hard hard earned dollars right here in downtown Amherst. So for all you local “Chicken Little”the sky is falling folks” out there who think “nobody would come to Amherst they are just driving right on by”. Got some news for ya.  Every week them folks at M.A.R.S. have got people traveling hours to come to Amherst and they are not just dropping $$ at M.A.R.S. They are eating here, over-nightin’ here, filling their gas tanks here and yes local shopping here. If that’s not tourism I don’t know what is.  So don’t give me your “nothing happens in this town ” OR “this place sucks”. Newsflash!!  Look around people!!!! And not your door yards dummies. You live in one of the best counties in the best province, in best country in the world. World hunger, terrorism, refugees, dictators. Geeze suck it up and smell the coffee. Maybe try and support a local business a bit more. Maybe volunteer, maybe write a positive “letter to the editor”, maybe say hi to a stranger. Maybe stop lippin’ off on Facebook. Maybe stop watching the News. Maybe just take a walk and breath the fresh air. Some people would give anything for the place. What would you do for this place? We’ll I’m outta here.

Thank you from S. and S.

Not a problem at all.  S. and I are very very pleased with the service and your positive response to his queries when he emailed you from the beginning. He was so happy to receive a new one in the box so to speak.  He keeps his “toys” in immaculate condition.  He rides bicycles and has several (road bikes) and he cleans them after every ride, if you saw them you would think they are new and he rides like thousands of kms on them every year.  We own a 2004 dodge viper and it is in showroom condition, (does not go out in the rain )  He will spend hours polishing and cleaning his “toys”.

 

Thanks very much.  I will look you up on facebook tonight (I am at work) and certainly like your page.

 

See you in 250 kms.

Thanks from NS Metro Area

“Thoroughly enjoyed working with Shelly and the MARS store team. Great experience and great service. Due to some financial complications I was previously declined on a loan and the MARS sales team gave me expert advice on how to rebuild my credit. Now just 6 months later I have my new Arctic Cat 4 wheeler and a free trailer. Fantastic experience, highly recommended!”

Thanks from Chris Osmond

My visit was great, just as always. I travel quite a ways to deal with you guys down there and it’s always been worth the drive.

Everyone I’ve met down there has been super nice and easy to deal with, right from Bob in sales to Ann and Rod in service to the guys in the shop. You guys have been great with me and my wife and we will continue to deal with you folks for our parts and service.

Thanks and have a great day .
