I got my copy of Bassin' yesterday and there was a page on trends for 2007. The first couple of paragraphs dwelt with the rumors that W/M may really be getting out of the fishing tackle business. One of the items mentioned in the article was that they may already be sending merchandise ordered for 2007 back to the manufactures. The earlier clearance sales on tackle was a normal process as far as I could tell but two weeks ago at our store, they were resetting their plan-o-grams in the fishing dept. and I took the time to read every sheet they had out. What I found was that a lot of items were being cut out or given fewer pegs and other items were going from a four peg layout to six and sometimes as high as 10. Normally, when this is done they are carring fewer items, less selection and are moving to a time where less shelf space is designated for that section.(I'm an old retail manager so it registered with me). I know that stores have different plan-o-gram layouts depending on their location and store size, but I found this trend at our store suprising since Lake Dardanelle is here and there is really only one other major tackle store in our area. Has anyone noticed the same trend this year in their store? Just wondering.
