Derek Sward will open Sasquatch Sports this Friday, May 17 – just in time for rodeo visitors.

The 10 year resident of Keremeos saw a need for  a retail sports outlet in the area. He’ll be supplying hunting and fishing gear to start, with camping gear to follow – perfect for Similkameen sports.

Hunting and fishing licenses  will also be available.

Sasquatch Sports is located one kilometre west of Keremeos, located in conjunction with Similkameen Taxidermy.

Sward had been heavily involved in the local hunting industry, and saw this opportunity as a “natural fit.” He plans to add to the business as it grows.

Sasquatch Sports, located at 3098 Highway 3, telephone: 250-499-2892.
