Business Spotlight: Clarksville Guns And Archery

 

Clarksville Guns and ArcheryClarksville, TN – When John McConnell opened Clarksville Guns and Archery, he felt that Clarksville just didn’t have the type of store that appealed to him. 

“When I went to purchase a gun for my wife, there wasn’t a store in the area that catered to the ‘new’ gun owner, and there was really a lack of customer service,” McConnell said. “Not everyone is a gun expert and new customers are who I want to cater to. I want them to become a responsible gun owner.”

In 2012, McConnell opened his business with one thing in mind and that was customer service.  When you walk into his store on Golf Club Lane, you’re greeted by the staff immediately.  

Clarksville Guns and Archery located at 1690 Golf Club Lane.
