While we at ACK believe that having the best possible price is important it is unrealistic to think that someone out there will not have a lower price. We strive to maintain a grasp on what is going on in the Internet world and check our prices as often as we can and adjust quite frequently, however, there are often times that someone finds a price that is lower or that is perceived as lower.
When you think of a boat show you probably expect to see thirty eight foot yachts with powerful motors, ski boats with loud stereo systems, the best bass fishing boats, or maybe even some custom sail boats. What you might not expect to see is Austin Canoe & Kayak.
Here at ACK San Marcos, TX we had Boy Scout Troop 1836 hold their weekly meeting right here in our store. The purpose of the meeting was to educate the scouts on the different boats, paddles and products needed for a successful kayak trip.
I’m always ready to try a new type of kayaking experience so when our local paddler meetup group posted up a trip for shooting a few miles of rapids on a local river I signed right up. Our trip was planned for 8 miles on the Guadalupe River above the Guadalupe River State Park north of San Antonio, TX.
Here at ACK we are quite proud of our service, our speed, our selection, but one thing that truly separates us from others is how we achieve all this while using a recycling program that is a win for everyone, it helps us keep our costs down all while keeping tons and tons of waste out of landfills. We never realized how much we were saving or what the impact to society was until we came across the City of Austin’s WasteSMART, once we began the certification process we soon realized what we were doing for ourselves and for society.
