Just look at everything, unless you are pressed for time. That's what I do when I go to BPS. I know that I have seen all the stuff in the fishing dept., but I always check things out. Even the salt-water and fly fishing stuff.
Well I didn't get to go to Gander Mountain. It started to storm pretty bad and now we are under a tornado watch. It looks like its going to get pretty bad so maybe I can go tomorrow when or if it clears up.
Hey bigtex i dont know if you knew or not, but I am on the gander mountain national pro staff... so if you are ever wondering when we are having a sale or something I could find out very quickly.. i work at gander in Cicero, NY as the Fishing Team Lead...
Mike, I didn't know that you were on the Gander Mountain Pro Staff. That must be a blast. I am always trying to find baby brush hogs on sale, so if you see that they are just send me a message. Thanks
By the way, will all Gander Mountain stores have the same sell on the same items? I only ask because for example Wal Mart does not. One store may have "brand A" on sell but the other Wal Mart that is a couple towns over will not have that "brand A" on sell and they will NOT honor each other stores. This has happened to me twice. Once with Dr. Peppers and the other with a DVD/VHS combo player.
I still haven't made it to Gander Mountain in Texarkana Tx but I do have three days off coming up so maybe, just maybe I can swing one of those days!!!!
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.
