I am very satisfied. The store is directly in Vyškov. Easy selection of goods and realization of the purchase. In addition, very helpful staff, who are fully dedicated to customers.
Phone customer care works as it should. All without the slightest difficulty. Telephone question of a technical nature answered willingly and efficiently.
Great e-shop, and a well stocked store with helpful and friendly staff who will professionally advise and help you. Top things at good prices and you can get a really wide range of equipment.
In a store helpful staff, the e-shop works as it should, nothing is delayed unnecessarily and when a problem comes, it is solved. A wide range of quality goods, I have been buying in this store for 5 years and so far no complaints
Thumbs up for trustiness and speed of order delivery.
I am usually regular customer since ARMED once opened a store in Karlín. And I'm always satisfied . and perhaps even ARMED's satisfaction. So I can only RECOMMEND to everyone. Also, as a LEX member, I have a discount on everything ...
Almost everything. Speed of order processing, communication, offer and advice.
Exceptionally high-quality clothing, helpful staff, nothing is a problem to solve
it was my first purchase, but the fact that I ordered the goods one day and the goods will arrive the next day, so I had no experience with it before.
The biggest advantage of the store is its modern e-shop, which excels over other army shops, whose websites froze in the time around 2005. I also appreciate the store in Prague with the possibility of personal pickup, review of goods and payment by card. I was looking for goods that were not in the store's offer, but it was not a problem to agree with the salesmen that they would get the goods for me. I can safely recommend the store.
I chose the wrong size jacket and the exchange took place at 1. I'm almost ashamed that I didn't pay for the second time transport.
At first its online store where you can order anything from the goods and let it sent to any Armed store. They have everything for soldiers and outdoor equipment for more specialized tourists. Prices are favorable. Other stores can be found on their website. They are open every weekday from 9 am.
So far, I can praise everything. The goods always arrived on time and in order. I look forward to another purchase.
I can only praise the store. I bought the jacket through the E shop, the size did not fit, after a single email, the exchange for another size was resolved directly in the shop. Great meeting. The service in the store is great, decent behavior. I have shopped there several times and always without problems. I definitely recommend.
We took an opportunity when we were forced to close all our shops due to a coronavirus pandemic and rebuilt our Kolbenova St. store into a authorised 5.11 point. We offer a broad range of 5.11 products.
2020's milestone is the launch of an English language e-shop at armed.eu/en. Immediate success of the online store shows that our approach to work can be appreciated not only by customers from the Czech Republic, but from all over Europe. Cities such as Bruges, Madrid or Burgas are showing up in new orders. Orders are crossing the 'big pond', as we deliver our first packages to the USA!
Again April 1st, we are opening a new store in Brno (second biggest city in Czechia). The Brno store is currently our largest and best furnished. The modernization of the packaging line is also important, thanks to which we managed the Christmas fever without major problems. We built a safe room in the Tábor store, which allowed us to expand range of weapons and ammunition. We are starting to supply the Talon Grips brand wholesale. By the end of the year, the company has over 30 employees.
We are opening a third store, this time in Tábor (south of Bohemia). We are launching a wholesale e-shop at b2b.armed.cz. We are expanding our wholesale brands with Lansky, Arpol, Tactical Foodpack and Warrior Assault Systems.
After seven years, it is time to rebuild the e-shop from the ground.. We are also pleased to take over the wholesale distribution of the traditional American brand Gerber.
In the spring of 2016, the decision was made to bring the two Prague stores together. We found suitable place in Vysočany, with enough space for increasing stocks and a store. This decision turned out to be the right one, as further growth of the company came with it.
We knew from the beginning that the building of the Karlín store would go to the ground once. But still we were not pleasantly surprised when we had to look fast for new premises in early 2015. In the end, we decided to split the store into two. A warehouse and a small shop were in Zličín, a larger shop on the Vysočanská metro station. In the end, it turned out that this was not exactly happy solution.
At first, we wanted to open our second store a little further east. In the end, however, we chose Vyškov near Brno (second biggest city in Czechia). Since then, every new soldier entering a basic military course knew that there was ARMED.
Expanding store by weapons and ammunition, we are among a very small number of stores that offer customers both firearms and clothing, footwear, outdoor equipment, etc. We are simply no longer just an army shop.
Karlín, oh yeah Karlín! Moving the company was a difficult operation. Without personal sacrifices, especially in the form of time, this would not be possible. We would start around eight in the morning and usually end at midnight. Then we went for refreshments to one of the Karlín pubs and again the next day. For further development of the company ARMED STORE s.r.o. moving to Prague was crucial.
In 2010, several major changes took place. The hobby became full-time work. We are moving to larger place, but still in Žatec. We are launching a brand new e-shop, which has no competition among other army shops. We are one of the first to start displaying real stocks. We fill the position of customer support employee (we basically already have an employee who is only in charge of picking up the phones and answering e-mails). Until then, orders were handled by the seller, but due to their amount, it is no longer possible.
A modern company needs a modern ERP system. Ideally one that will allow us to grow. ERP system is very popular among employees.
Škoda Favorit Forman, from pensioner, almost unused. The ideal supply vehicle for a fast-growing company! By the way, great car.
On Fool's day, April 1st, 2007, a new army shop in the center of Žatec - Armed welcomed customers for the first time. It was a small shop and there was not much in stock. But we had something that was not very noticeable among the other army shops at the time - a modern e-shop for its time. Number of employees: 1
As the Benešov mechanized battalion and the headquarters of the 4th BRN were relocated to Žatec (northwest Bohemia), there was no store where soldiers could buy equipment. Nobody took the opportunity for so long until the founder of ARMED.cz decided to open a small army shop by himself. The first investment was financed by sale of the Suzuki SV 1000 S motorcycle. A huge sacrifice indeed!
Although we are a company, not an army, we share some of the important values. We believe work is done better in an environment with clearly defined competencies and responsibilities.
