A family business established over 25 years ago as Dance’s Sporting Goods is the only shop of its kind and name. Dance’s is a complete hunting, fishing and shooting shop that has been in business for over 46 years and is owned by brothers Marlon and Forrest Dance. The store started in Petersburg, where the old Walnut Mall was once located.
“There’s nothing special about how and why we started this business,” said owner Marlon Dance. “Over 25 years ago my brother, I and our father started working 6 days a week, 12 hours a day just with the thought of it and here we are today.”
Dance’s isn’t just a complete hunting, fishing, and shooting shop. Inside is also a small coffee shop called The Bears Den. Bears Den is open Monday to Friday and serves breakfast from 8am. to 11am, then lunch from 11am to 2pm What could be nicer than grabbing a bite to eat while you shop for your fishing and hunting gear or firearm of your liking. There is also a jewelry pawn shop called Atlantic Pawn inside Dance’s.
Dance’s is located at 570 Southpark Boulevard, Colonial Heights, VA 23834.
