Spotsylvania County-based firearms dealer SSG Tactical is opening a 3,750-square-foot retail store at the Westwood Office Park off State Route 3 in Fredericksburg, said Chris Waller, a commercial real estate agent who handled the lease negotiations for Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer. The company will sell firearms and related accessories at the store, and will also provide firearms-related classes there (range-related instruction will be elsewhere). SSG frequently attends area gun shows and has an active website, but this will be the first retail location for the company in its 20-year history. SSG is currently building out the storefront and expects to open sometime in July, Waller said.
