Andy Shirley, owner of Cabin by the Lake, said he’s happy to be back in his hometown of Brundidge.

Cabin by the Lake Outdoor Sporting Goods has opened at its new location, 334 North Main St. in Brundidge.

Sometimes, you just want to go home and that desire is what prompted Andy Shirley to move his business from Troy to his hometown.

Shirley said he appreciates the support he received in Troy for eight years and is looking forward to now being in business in Brundidge.

“This is home for me and it’s good to be home,” Shirley said. “Brundidge is a smaller town, but there’s a lot of potential here and I’m looking forward to being a part of the Brundidge business community.”

Cabin by the Lake’s North Main Street location is just up the street from the crossroads of Main Street and Highway 10.

“There’s a lot of traffic along Highway 10 going to Lake Eufaula,” Shirley said. “We’re hoping that those heading to the lake will take advantage of what Cabin by the Lake has to offer. And, of course, there’s good hunting all around here.”

Shirley said the focus of his outdoor shop is primarily hunting supplies and fishing tackle.

“We have just about anything that you need or want for hunting and fishing, including live bait,” Shirley said. “Our goal is to supply all the needs of those who enjoy these sports.”

Cabin by the Lake also features several top lines of clothing, headwear and sunglasses for the sportsman and also for the outdoorsman.

Cabin by the Lake also shares space with CBL Liquidation, which is located in the back section of the store.

“CBL Liquidation features merchandise from major department stores that has been pulled from the shelves, in damaged boxes, scratched or dented. The prices are half or more off the retail prices,” Shirley said. “We have a large variety of merchandise and it changes often. We have furniture, appliances, power tools, kitchen utensils, bedding, helmets for ATVs, microwaves, just so many things. And, everything is priced to sell.”

But Cabin by the Lake is more than just a shopping place. Shirley hopes that it will be a gathering place for swapping fish tales – “or lies.”

The shop is decorated with trophy mounts, some of which belong to local sportsmen or women.

“We invite everyone to stop by Cabin by the Lake and say ‘hello,’” Shirley said. “It’s good to be doing business at home and be a part of the Brundidge community.”
