Hello R2R! We are here to make an enormous announcement! Get ready! Here comes our Megastore thread!

World Wide Corals new Aquarium Superstore across from Sea World is currently under construction!

Our new South Orlando Location will be a state of the art "MEGA" Retail Store and will replace our current WWC OG location sometime later this year.

We have been waiting more than a decade for this! It has been a long time coming and we can't tell you how excited we are to finally make this happen :) We kept plugging along for going on 12 plus years, dreaming for this day and that day is finally close at hand.

We really hope to make our Superstore a Reefing Mecca! A place where one can lose themselves for awhile and gaze at tank after tank of beautiful corals, healthy fish and lively inverts.

We truly look forward to sharing our vision of what we believe is the future of the reefing hobby with you! So please come on down to Orlando once we open and enjoy this labor of love with us as soon as possible :)

This is a busy time for us, so please follow along as we have embarked on building out 2 new WWC locations simultaneously!

Our 2nd Winter Park Retail Store build-out is going strong and will finished out sometime this summer. Please click on the following link to this thread for more details.

Very nice! Always glad to see an LFS actually make it to the big times.

Been to the OG store, will definitely have to check this one out next time I'm down in FL visiting grandma.

The new mega store should be opening later this year so make sure to stop in and check it out next time you are in Florida visiting grandma :)
