This week marks Iron Nation’s 5-year anniversary. We started in a small facility on Morrow Rd with no idea if axe throwing would become popular in Barrie or not. Barrie jumped on board and joined the nation, quickly exceeding our expectations. After two years in business, we had outgrown our humble beginnings and moved our facility to a beautiful, large location on Veterans Dr. At this location, we added our liquor licence, walk-ins and knife throwing. We have had many amazing staff, some that have stayed with us from our first round of hiring. We have met so many great people through return customers and our league nights, some that have also stuck with us from the very beginning. The loyalty and support that you have all shown us has been outstanding.
In March, Iron Nation had to close its doors due to covid-19. The last weekend that we were open, we were very busy with our amazing vibe of loud music, large crowds, cheering and excitement. We love everything that Iron Nation was but at this time, we cannot go back to what we were. There are many challenges ahead and many uncertainties. We have decided to go out with a bang, rather then to forge ahead with an unknown future. Iron Nation will not be re-opening and will be closing permanently. We want to thank you all for an amazing 5 years of business, it has been an incredible adventure!
With love, the Iron Nation Team
