The rumours of Orvis’ demise are greatly exaggerated…

I’ve just returned from the Orvis store with a boot full of bargains – everything, I mean everything, was half price!

Better than that though was the news that Orvis aren’t leaving us here in the North East, they’re just moving towns.

The Corbridge store will close its doors for good on the 28th July 2012. In 3 or 4 months time they will be opening a new store in Morpeth.

No specific dates, or details on where in Morpeth, or how big the store will be – but great news they’ll still be here.

I now have enough Tippett, line and other ‘stuff’ for the sale to keep me going until they reopen.

If you’re still thinking about popping in to Corbridge, there was quite a bit of tackle left, though a lot of stuff has gone too. Of the big things, a number of different styles of wader left, som very nice rods, loads of Tippett and Hydros lines too. Be quick though!
