Keeping Afloat With Volunteers
If you make the trek out to our Spring Sale you’ll quickly become engulfed into a fun, educational, and truly unique experience! The 30+ volunteers we’re so blessed to have help us will greet you upon your arrival and are happy to share their experiences as paddlers and lend unbiased advice.
Many of our volunteers started as customers, but through their introduction to paddlesports they have become close friends and an essential cog in the Frontenac Outfitters’ wheel! Some are ex-employees who have gone on to greater job pursuits, but just like the Canadian Geese, they return each spring to catch-up and help out.
All share a genuine love for paddlesports along with a strong passion and respect for protecting our waterways and wildlife for future generations! Like us, our volunteers strongly believe in taking the time to properly educate folks as to the pros, cons, and compromises one makes in choosing the ideal boat for their paddling needs.
What does all this mean to you?
It means you don’t deal with high pressure salespeople. Instead you’ll be chatting with people just like you!
