BPS bought another retailer recently. The pond is getting smaller.

This time of year fishing season sales are about done and it's time to stock more heavily for hunting season. The OOS stuff prolly won't be re-ordered until mid-winter.

OR the industrious people of that part of the country are using them as a wind break.

I figured that many stores would be in the same position. Was in Walker, MN in mid July. I was very surprised at Reeds. Lot of stock.

Cabelas is a shadow of it's former self and even worse after the BP buyout. Reeds is still a great option and their shipping service is top-notch.

Not sure, don't really care, just repeating what was reported on the news several weeks ago.

100,000, must have been a really slow drive by.....I would venture to guess that it would take a few days to count that many containers. LOL

Most of us presently agree, but because they are monopolizing our sport sometimes you are forced to deal with these clowns so you adapt and play the new NORMAL game with them and that is:

1. Order months before your need for the item, and
2. After waiting months for the item you call their 800 number and complain and if you complain loud enough they'll send you the following email: "Thank you for being a valued Customer.
Your promotion code for $XX dollars off your next purchase from Bass Pro Shops is below. This is a one time use code that can be used at checkout or when placing an order at www.basspro.com."

First choice is always to try to find the item elsewhere which is getting tougher and tougher so sometimes you have to play ball with them.

I didn't hear that they acquired Sportsman's Warehouse! Darnit, another store down the drain.

LMFAO

Clearly you sucked at Monopoly as a kid.
It's already down to who owns all the utilities and railroads and who owns Park Place, Boardwalk, and the rest of the 4th side of the board.
Oligopoly stage, headed to Monopoly stage and end-game.

Default Cabellas

I went to the big 3X points sale at my local (Richfield, WI) Cabellas store to pick up a new reel. They had 5, yes 5, total in stock. Amazing.
So sad. I live about 2 miles from the store and will have to cross it off my list of places to go. Unfortunately the competition has dried up and it all seems to be going on line. Hard to the the feel of the item when buying on line though.
