Up-to-date Store Information pertaining to COVID-19:

These are unprecedented times and we are all learning to manage through the rapidly changing situation together. Please know that the health and safety of our customers, as well as our own employees, is our top concern. During these unsettling times, we understand that everyone is concerned for their safety and wants to take the necessary precautions for their family. We are experiencing very significant increases in in-store and online order volume, as well as an increase in customer service inquiries through e-mail and phone calls. We want to be able to serve as many of our customer's needs as possible, but of course there are many limiting factors that dictate the number of customers we can serve in each workday.

In response to our current environment, the following actions and policy changes are being taken to manage the situation at hand:

Please check back to our website for changes to the actions and policies below, as things continue to evolve each day.

June 8 Update:
Online orders temporarily suspended

During this time, all Vance Outdoors store locations are open during normal business hours.

Due to the unprecedented amount of traffic in our retail stores, we have made the tough decision to temporarily suspend all new orders from being placed online, including new in-store pickup orders.

Items are being purchased so quickly, and checkout times have increased so much, that inventory levels are not guaranteed to be accurate through our website. We are truly sorry for the inconvenience.

For law enforcement inquiries only, please contact Vance's Law Enforcement by phone at 614-471-0712, or by email at info@vancesle.com.

March 20 Update:
All Stores Are Closed Through March 30th

Dear Vance Outdoors Customers,

At Vance Outdoors, we believe that during a time of crisis we should all work together towards a common good of our community. Our priority during this time has been the safety and welfare of our employees and our customers. We have done our best to stay open to allow our community members the ability to exercise their right to protect themselves and their property during these uncertain times. Over the past week, we have restricted the hours we are open and we have restricted the number of people we have allowed in our stores to maintain social distancing as much as possible. We also implemented additional cleaning and sanitizing procedures within the stores.

In light of the latest news and updates relating to the COVID-19 virus, we have decided it is in everyone's best interest to close our retail locations to the public effective immediately. We plan to be closed at least through March 30th. We will continue to listen to Governor DeWine and the health-care experts' instructions and assess our re-opening date based on the information and recommendations at hand.

For any customers who have a paid for a firearm or any other product that is on layaway OR on hold for an in-store pick-up, we understand your frustration and we will be working to communicate with each and every one of you to determine what you would like to do with your layaway during this closure. You will have the option of keeping your product on layaway so it is here for you when we re-open the doors, or you can choose to cancel the layaway and we will refund your money. If you would like to cancel the order, please e-mail us at shop@vanceoutdoors.com with your name, contact number and your order number and indicate you'd like to cancel for a full refund. We will reach out to each of you beginning this Monday, March 23rd to determine your desired course of action. Please have patience and know that we will be in contact with everyone as quickly as possible.

Any other inquiries should be sent to shop@vanceoutdoors.com. We will have someone responding to your emails beginning Monday morning. We appreciate your loyalty and patronage and look forward to seeing you in our stores very soon.
