Boat dealer Crystal-Pierz Marine of Minnesota plans to open a new 38,000-square-foot superstore in Rogers by January 2005. The store will include room to display more than 100 boats and a wide selection of accessories.
The 20-year-old marine dealer says the store’s design will cater to families and will feature “drive-through” Urgent Care service. The program was launched three years ago by Crystal-Pierz Marine to keep boaters out of the shop and on the water using drive-through/same-day repair diagnosis.
Founded in Pierz, Minn., in 1984, Crystal-Pierz Marine is the largest volume dealer of Glastron, Lund, Bennington and Crestliner boats in the world. There are nine stores in Minnesota including Brainerd, Crystal, Forest Lake, Maple Lake, St. Cloud, Shakopee, Albert Lea, Gull Lake, and Pelican Rapids; Rice Lake in Wisconsin; and Fargo in North Dakota. www.crystalpierz.com
