Tackle Box moves to South Point

A long-time Ironton business has relocated to South Point.

The Tackle Box had been in the city for 30 years before moving to South Point within the last two weeks.

Owner Greg Drown said the business needed to find another location because the store next to it in the former Big Lots shopping center on Second Street is expanding.

The store sells mostly fishing tackle but also guns and gun accessories among other things.

With 6,700 square feet, the new location at 411 Solida Road is more than double the size of its previous location.

“We have a lot more inventory than we have in the past,” Drown said.

The business owner said he likes the new location.

“I love it,” Drown said. “The store’s so much bigger and brighter.”

The new location is also more centrally located because many of his customers come from the Huntington area, he said.

The store will be hosting a grand opening event 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
