Pronature Merchant - Pro Nature Sports enr.

In the Bois-Francs region, Centre-du-Québec, you will find Plessisville Pronature stores belonging to Gilles Bellemare and his son. They also own the Pronature store in Victoriavile. For outdoor lovers the region offers magnificient spaces. The town of Plessisville offers a perfect mix between urban life and the serenity of the countryside.

When you know more about his career, most of all  Gilles Bellemare's younger days, it is easy to understand what makes him an enthusiast, thoughtful and experienced merchant.  You have to go back to the sixties to watch a small boy with is father hunting small game such as partridges, hares and wood sandpipers. The two of them would go biking, looking for out-of-the way and peaceful places and practice river trout fishing, spending more time in the woods than at home.

Trapping then became Gilles' hobby above all else.  Due to a book that he read on hunting and tanning of hides and skins, he learned taxidermy by himself.  Same as when he was little, Gilles spent all his time in the forests in the company of young men of is age, hunting and building camps.

Unsurprisingly, it is in the fields and in the great outdoor that Gilles will take his first steps as a farmer's employee in the region and get his training.  From «rock picker» he gets to be in charge of cow milking and become a tractor driver.  Physical hard work training will,  for fifteen years, keep him in the building material business in different positions and climging the ranks of the company to become store manager.  Before long Gilles would open in Victoriaville his own business with his son, which brings back  memory of the complicity with his father and the reason why his hunting passion is so great. 

As co-owner of two Pronature stores and one of the founding members of the group, Gilles wants, just like his father did with him, to pass on his love for fishing in organizing fishing and ice-fishing tournaments for the younger generation.   Gilles Bellemare is one of ten merchants at the root of the founding of Pronature Group  and this is why he is so proud to be a part of it.

The Plessisville Pronature stores hold a solid reputation throughout Quebec for its archery department.  With the crossbow boom, archery  has lost a bit of steam in the last years, but archery lovers remained faithful and do not hesitate to visit their Pronature merchant in order to get sound advice.  The employees forming the core of the store have a strong family feeling connecting them together and clients greatly benefit from their sound advice. Old and young alike are welcomed at Pronature Plessisville.

Our specialized people are waiting for you in store to pass on their passion and help you with your purchases for your next outdoor activities.
