EMS (South Portland) moving
« on: October 19, 2004, 11:43:05 am »
I was @ EMS in the Maine Mall yesterday, and got to talking to one of the employees and he said that EMS will be moving in the near future to Marginal Way, Portland over by the Maine Rock Gym and Wild Oats. Not quite sure on exact timeframe. He also said they are going to be expanding the climbing section some.  They are also having a 20% off everything in the store this weekend starting Friday

This move is a bit obnoxious since they are locating just down the street from Maine Mountain Works -- a locally owned store that has served the Portand area for a number of years.  Seems a little like bullying tactics.  It figures they are locating in the same space as the national chain whole foods store that located across the parking lot from the locally owned whole foods store...
If you want to get to the peak, you ought to climb without giving it too much thought.
