J&A Surplus LLC
If you are looking to get some “good gear cheap,” you might want to check out the new military surplus store in the area. J&A Surplus LLC is owned by Joe Hondalus and opened in February on M-46 (19499 Howard City-Edmore Rd) across from Burley Park in Howard City.
J&A carries military surplus items and hunting and camping gear, cold weather gear, boots, mickeys and bunnies. Hondalus says his business is unique here. “Nobody in the local area carries these types of products,” he noted. And the prices are good, too.
“Good gear cheap is our motto because it’s military surplus and we can sell it cheap,” he said.
Hondalus said he hopes to expand the building and continually bring in more products, such as military items from other countries. He also hopes to eventually have a website.
Stop in and check out the new store today! Hours are Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday noon to 5 p.m. Closed Tuesday. For more info call (616) 485-2423.
