Re: West Marine & SCUBA Gear?
I suspect the logic is "Divers often have boats. Divers go to a store for air, sometimes every week. Gee...if we serviced divers, we could get more boat owners to stop by West every week, and then they might buy stuff for their boats while they were here."
The logic might work, depending on the cost of adding dive services to a store.
"Leave scuba to shops that have expertise and training and well kept equipment. " Oh, right, like there are any of those on this planet? Come up to the northeast, plenty of gen-you-whine certified shops give short fills, dirty fills, outright lie about VIPs being necessary, outright lie about plus hydro....
You get better odds on the local indy gas station having a clean restroom. Sad to say.
