Pronature Amqui Merchant

Leading a very hectic life.


The saying «he fell into it when he was little» can perfectly be applied to Mario Ross, owner of Rimouski and Amqui Pronature stores.  Mario is a good businessman because he was litterally born into it. His parents were business people so it was normal for him to turn in this direction.

Mario is a hunting and fishing enthusiast, and with his good business sense, he developed his talent early in life.  Hunting and fishing first with his father's company, he started trapping as early as 18 years old.  He now devotes his life to what he loves the most and not many people can brag they can live on their passion.  Mario has to his credit an article actually named «passtime, passion, a job, which says it all».

Passing on his passion to others is a natural thing for Mario. He doesn’t fear to be in the media or to get involved. The list of plans to his credit is quite long......hunting  and fishing films, Labatt hunting and fishing promotion events, hunting and fishing Adventure magazine columns, television broadcast, hunting guide....not counting his Pronature stores involvement in different archery or rifle shooting clubs.  Mario is really leading a hectic life. You won't be surprised to learn that if he wants a break, he has to run away, litterally, to his summer cottage, no cell and no wifi.

On your next trip to Bas-St-Laurent, you should really stop at Pronature Amqui. Mario's employees are not in place by luck.  They all very well reflect his passion and they all have great expertise in any of the store's department. They will for sure praise moose hunting on all angles, or rifle shooting, archery, crossbow and black powder rifle shooting. Pronature Amqui brings together specialized people trained by great enthusiasts in their job, whether men or women.  And Mario has tons of plans for the future.  Expanding will always be part of his business strategies. The evidence is that a third extension since 2011 is scheduled to open this year. 

The team is waiting for you in store to pass on their passion and to help you with your purchases for your next outdoor activities. In Bas-St-Laurent, for your hunting, fishing and outdoor equipment, it's Pronature Rimouski Amqui at 134, boulevard St-Benoit est. Serving you will be our greatest pleasure!
