    1. I’ve been buying from Nelsons since I started here at the dock in 1975. just like every other fisherman and dock worker in this town. Good quality work clothes at an honest price. It’s like a mini Cabelas right here in our own back yard.

  1. I shop at Nelson’s as I regularly need what they offer…Herb Nelson schooled me in certain ways when I was a member of the City Council…I cherish the memories and share them from time to time…he understood Main Street business sense…I miss his perspective,,,
