Go Big Paintball moved at the beginning of December from its original location at 4120 Meridian St. to a larger space at 1301 W. Bakerview Road, Suite 105.
With 1,200 square feet, the new location allows the business room to carry more paintball supplies and other items such as airsoft guns and disc golf discs. The space is also located near Fred Meyer and offers better visibility, parking and access to the freeway, said owner Rick O’Connor.
The business has grown quickly since opening in June 2010. Earlier this year, Go Big Paintball purchased the former Semper Fi Paintball field, a 22-acre parcel at 2149 East Badger Road in Lynden, and is in the process of improving the eight themed playing fields and facilities.
The paintball fields, which are open on the weekends, have different themes, from WWII to Black Hawk Down.
“We’re trying to create the ultimate themed paintball field,” O’Connor said. “We’re trying to make it so that people come from all over the region to play here.”
With the success of the retail store and online sales, O’Connor said he is also looking at opening two new stores in 2012, one in the Mount Vernon area and one in Marysville.
