Small update for the Winter Park store! The guys are making great progress over there.
JW doing some plumbing on the 10' Display Tank.
RO and Saltwater drums for the Winter Park Store. They will stay hidden from the retail floor giving the store a clean look.
Josh mounting an RO unit for the stores water supply.
And here it is in its final resting place near the drums.
A shot of the filtration at the back of the 10' Display Tank.
And finally a photo of the Winter Park store in its current state. Check out that fish only show tank on the left! You guys have any requests on non reef safe fish you'd like to see in it?
More updates on the way!
Not sure if we will have a system dedicated to that but will make sure to have a section with some lower priced frags for sureDo you guys plan on running a system for budget frags like TSA ? I know you guys had a small tank back in the day but it didn't last too long.
If you're looking for livestock your best bet is the current store. Even if the Winter Park store is open by then it won't be stocked with livestock like the current store yet.Still on track for early July opening? We're vacationing in Florida the week of July 7th so hoping to make a visit to one of the WWC stores.
Hey Kevin, thanks for the great feedback! It was our pleasure to show you around the store and help you pick out some nice frags. Our new locations in both Orlando and Winter park are coming along great, hopefully you have another business trip coming up soon so you can stop by and check them outI just have to say “Thank you” to all the guys over at WWC.
I was in Orlando on a business trip for a conference this week and my friends at ARC in Buffalo, NY told me before I left, I “had to check this place out”. So I did, not thinking at all, that I would get the Outstanding treatment that I got.
Everyone was Fantastic! Extreamly knowledgable, and spent more time with me showing me almost everything in the place so I could have a visit to remember than I could have possibly have dreamed of.
I was so overwhelmed by the friendliness and excitement in their voices when we talked about different corals and our tanks. I talked to a ton of different people, it was great, I felt at home and I live across the country.
The store and livestock was absolutely amazing and very diverse. I was so overwhelmed, I had to come back again the next day after it all sunk in, to make some purchases before I left Florida.
I could have bought one (or two) of everything, especially the Euphillia, of course they would have to let me live there, cause my wife would kill me if I came home, but I picked out, with their help sorting through all the many different selections, some stunning Zoas and Palys and these great folks at WWC are shipping them home for me.
If the new location, which they tell me is so much bigger and will be even more diverse, is run half as well, and with the same feeling of welcoming as this place, they will have to expand again very soon because they will be swamped! The people here are top notch!
I can’t wait to visit again! It will definitely be a non negotiable stop for me next time I’m in town!
Thank you again for the great time! (And frags!)
Kevin from Buffalo, NY
Good point on making colors pop.I would suspect because the insanely colored corals will pop against a dark background a lot more than they will a light one. No one paints the back of their tank white.
