But size isn't everything, much more important is quality and sound honest advice, so in 2007 we move to a new location. As it turns out, the shop wasn't big enough so we hired the next two rooms and created a shop of similar size to the first. Again, bigger than anything ever seen in the UK. 1/3 of the shop is a retail store, the other 2/3 is used as warehousing for the online side of things and to keep stock for the retail side.
Then in 2012, it's not about bravado, it's about quality, so this time, instead of going for a unit, we go for a suite.
The latest incarnation of Fat Bobs is the UK's most modern paintball store, plush carpets, intercom entry in a clinically clean environment. It's now about total quality of products, total quality of service, you could say the Rolls Royce of paintball stores in the UK.
This quality and attention to detail, together with the huge output of the online side of Fat Bobs sees us still at the top of the game, the best paintball shop in the UK, the most honest paintball shop in the UK, the biggest paintball shop in the UK..
This is the true UK Paintball M.E.G.A.S.T.O.R.E
