In 1968, Randy Repass started selling nylon nautical rope out of his garage in Sunnyvale, California, calling his company West Coast Ropes. Business was good enough that he was able to open his first store in Palo Alto in 1975, rebranding in 1977 to West Marine Products after acquiring new assets from West Products. By 1991, West Marine had reached the East Coast and today, the company spans 278 locations with franchise stores in Puerto Rico and Canada. A store for the boating enthusiast and the casual boater, West Marine has become a name to rely on in the nearly 50 years of its operation.
This year, West Marine will be closed in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday to allow its employees and valued customers the opportunity to enjoy the day surrounded by friends and family. West Marine will operate on normal business hours for Black Friday 2017, Saturday, Sunday, and Cyber Monday, though times will vary by location so please contact your local store for exact hours.
