Awesome grill store discovery today!

If the guys who run this place ever hear about this review, they will laugh because I think I bought the second cheapest grill they sell. But not only were they nice about it when I inquired over the phone, but they were even better in person. So I thought I would share this little retail gem.

I am an avid outdoor cook. I have been shopping in all types of stores all over the country for years now - high end and big box etc. And my general take away is that nobody has figured out this business model. And purchasing or replacing something like a basic gas grill can be a total hassle. The most frustrating thing is that It is so difficult to find anyone in a retail setting who has any time and /or knowledge available for you when you need it. I think because it is considered "seasonal".

If you have ever felt this way, you will love this place! It is called Foster's of Gloucester.

It is not fancy. In fact it is behind an attached gas station. But stay with me here. They have a great selection of all kinds of grills. They have a nice large showroom, and these folks know the products. Everything you find in the upscale places. Several things that caught my eye, that I never even saw online! SO I already need to go back. If I were designing a high end home outdoor cooking set up I would do it through there guys. If I was cash strapped and needed something very basic that was in stock, this would be my first choice too. If I was a contractor, I would work with them.

Gloucester sounds like the end of the earth to some. But this place is like two minutes off of 128. So many fun options around here. Well worth the drive. I just LOVE this area. I should have stopped for lunch!

Hope this is helpful!
