This past week, some good friends of ours opened a second location of their dive shop: Divers Incorporated - Monroe. The grand opening of the new store coincided with the 10 year anniversary of owning their first shop (Divers Incorporated - Ann Arbor) and the 9 year anniversary of operating the White Star Quarry in Ohio. To celebrate, they had a Grand Opening party this week. Scuba diving, good friends, cold beer: I can't think of a better way to spend a Tuesday evening! We had so much fun in fact that we had to drag ourselves out of there long after the sun set. Who knows what may have happened if we hadn't had to work the next morning!
Not long after we got certified, we noticed something about divers: they are all very social. We've come to the conclusion that diving is not just a hobby, it's a lifestyle. The actual diving, the time spent underwater, is really quite small compared to everything else we do during a day of diving. Most of the time, we are socializing with other dive friends - sometimes at the dive site, sometimes around a campfire, and a lot of times over a meal and a beer. And the Grand Opening party was just another opportunity to spend time with others who enjoy the lifestyle as much as we do!
The new Divers Incorporated location offers divers, and those interested in learning to scuba dive, classes, air fills, rental equipment, and a full line of dive gear and accessories for purchase. It is conveniently located at 440 North Main St. in Monroe, MI.
The new store is beautiful inside and the staff is welcoming and eager to help you with all of your scuba diving needs. If you're in the Monroe area, or even just passing though, stop by and tell them the Oaks' sent you!
