Les is Retiring!

To our faithful Customers,

  After 42 years of serving the winter-sports and biking community of WNY and PA, Hollyloft is formally announcing the retirement of Les & Cheryl Johnson from the business. Since 1978 in Warren, PA with The Ski Warren, and 1984 in Jamestown with Hollyloft Ski & Bike, they have helped equip local enthusiasts with fun, trending products with enduring value, and always were striving for the best in service. Hollyloft is grateful to our many loyal staff members throughout the years, and our community of amazing customers that have made this business fun and successful for the past 42 years.

 In the next few weeks we will be winding down operations at the shop, and selling down our inventory with the eventual closing at 4pm on December 24th, 2020. While this is a chapter closing, it is not necessarily good-bye, and we are actively planning new beginnings as we go dormant for a while to ride out the storm.

  We invite you to reach out with your best memories from the past years, to celebrate the friendships and connections made through this one small business that is Hollyloft. Memories that attach to our local ski resorts past and present: Buckaloons, Cockaigne, Peek ‘N Peak, Holiday Valley, and Holimont.  As well as the many cross-country ski events, marathons, and nordic challenges of the 70’s and 80’s. And of course: the biking world with Team Hollyloft and the many rides and races like Raccoon Rally, Kinzua Classic, Tour De Bemus, and Chautauqua Gran Fondo.

  While the world-wide pandemic prevents us from throwing a going-away extravaganza, we invite you to virtually share your memories and connections made through Hollyloft over the last 42 years, as we send Les and Cheryl off into a well-deserved retirement.

Stick Specialized’s ANGI on your helmet, pair it with your phone, and help is one text message away. If the gadget’s accelerometer and gyroscope detect an impact or spill, it sounds an alarm. Fail to respond within 90 seconds, and the Specialized app sends your location to an emergency contact.

There’s also the boating experience !!!

Let’s face it: boats are not a necessity. The fast majority of people don’t need a boat; they buy one because it makes them happy. It helps them bond with their family, escape the hustle-and-bustle of work, and relax for at least a few hours every time you want to take it out, and is a luxury we don’t need but we enjoy, similar to first class traveling or renting a limousine which are luxuries we sometimes can afford and companies like Ross Limo are happy to provide for this.

Unless you’re a commercial fishing captain, you buy a boat because you want to, not because you need to. Boating should be an enjoyable departure from your everyday life, and with these little tips, you’ll have more fun every time you go out.

Remember Your Safety Procedures
Yes, this post is about enjoyment, but before we start into the fun stuff, let’s get safety out of the way, and first look in Merritt Supply for the supplies for the trip. Make sure you are following all boating safety regulations and practices, including life jacket count, passenger capacity, and speed restrictions. It might sound preachy, but by ensuring all safety measures are followed, you can relax and enjoy boating with no worry.

Keep the Boat Clean and Organized
Think about how great it feels to have a clean, uncluttered office. This same principle applies to your boat. When it is clear, clean, and uncluttered, it’s easier to use and more enjoyable for everyone on board. You won’t have to step over lifejackets or spend a half hour searching for the right fishing equipment when everything is organized.

Take Time for Different Activities
Variety is the spice of life, so the saying goes. Going from the yacht club for lunch to the marina and back again gets old fast, so take time for a wide variety of activities, and try something new as often as possible. At Scout, we believe fishing should be part of every outing, but you can also try skiing, swimming, scuba diving, stopping at the beach, or simply cruising up the shoreline to a find a new restaurant.

Listen to Your Passengers
Your passengers should be a part of the experience, not just ride-along spectators. Listen to what they’re telling you. Is the water too choppy for some people? Would your group like to go fishing or get something to eat? Is it time to head in? A good boater will always take their passenger’s feedback to heart.

Choose the Right Boat or Bike
If you’re still in the market for a boat, take your time and choose the right one. Having the perfect boat for you and your family will make a big difference in your long-term enjoyment. What do you want to do with your boat? How much boating experience do you have? How many people do you want to bring along? Asking these questions before buying will help you have more fun for years and years. If you’re thinking about using that old bicycle you have all dusted in your garage and it’s probably going to need to fix a lot of parts of it just take it to this bike store Adelaide and get it fixed at a very good price and early enough so you can enjoy it on this time of the season.
