The reason that Wal-Mart's in two different cities that are 15 miles away do not carry the same thing is because of the economical status of those two areas. Here in Trion, our Wal-Mart does not carry the things that the Lafayette store carries, because Trion is smaller than Lafayette, and Lafayette has more economical and financial resources than Trion does.
If you watch "We Live Outdoors" on OLN, you will learn that Gander Mountain does something that ALL outdoor super-stores should do. They cater to each region, for their particular type of fishing. The ones up north will be geared toward smallmouth bass, pike and musky, and ice fishing, while the ones that are in the middle of country will cater to largemouth, panfish, catfish, etc. The same is true for the coastal Gander Mountains..........they will cater to the salt-water anglers as well.
Gander Mountain has a great setup going, and I hope that they come to Georgia soon.
