BROOKFIELD, MA – Tombstone Trading Company, Inc announces the purchase of the former Melha Shriners’ property at 126 West Main Street in Ware, MA. The property will be the future location for the retail firearm business, which has operated in Brookfield, MA since 2002. All operations will move to the new location.

The new store will be located on Route 9, also known as West Main Street, only seconds from Route 32, the main artery into Ware, MA and only 15 minutes from Exit 63 (Old Exit 8).

“This is very exciting, just a great piece of property that gives us so many opportunities for growth. We cannot wait to get started.” said David P. Bourdeau, President of Tombstone Trading Company, Inc.

The transition to operating at the new location is anticipated to be mid-year in 2023, once remodeling and enhancement of the new store is completed.

“This new location gives us more retail sales space as well as tremendous growth opportunity.” said Jason Turcotte, Vice-President of Operations and Store Manager. “Additionally, we have customers from the Cape & Islands to the western-most part of the Berkshires and this will make it even easier for them to get to us as we will be closer to the Mass Pike.” he added.

Since then the business has established ourselves as a premier Massachusetts gun shop with a strong focus on customer service. They treat the new and inexperienced customer with just as much respect as long-time gun users. The business carries new and used firearms, hard to find collectibles and military surplus guns.
