With the heart of the holiday shopping season fast approaching, it seems relevant to both the calendar and the spirit of this blog to highlight a couple Morgantown retailers that strongly accommodate some specific interests of men.
Men’s fascination with machines has been a topic of debate seemingly forever. The obsession obviously extends beyond cars, to the likes of power tools, motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles. Perhaps, it is partially a product of men seeing appeal in harnessing the power of the machine they’re operating, enhancing our perceived manliness in the process.
Sufficiently satisfying that appeal and revolving interests is Morgantown Power Sports, which sells various motorized bikes and all-terrain vehicles from numerous manufacturers. Located on the Mileground, the shop offers a wide array of motorsport accessories, as well as the many corresponding parts for the vehicle models that they sell. The shop is diverse enough in its content to constitute a solid starting point for beginners or those interested in getting involved with motorsports.
In spite of some rather, lets say “interesting” assertions to the contrary, I can assure you that the playing of musical instruments, particular those of acoustic and percussion classifications, has traditionally been regarded as a very heterosexual and masculine activity. Maybe, an instrument’s ability to allow one to express his aggression and angst in a way that he cannot on his own is where some appeal lies?
Beavis seems to concur with that sentiment.
Regardless, those with an interest in musical instruments can find great accommodation at Fawley Music. Located in Sabraton, the shop offers a volume of services that should satisfy any level of instrumental enthusiast. Its rental program, in particular, provides beginners with a lot of flexibility in terms of experimenting with different instruments.
For those interested in either retailer, I have pegged their specific locations in the Morgantown area. Have both a fulfilling and safe Thanksgiving.
