interesting. I've watched the show of the guy that currently runs camping world, Marcus Lemonis. If anyone can turn it around he can. I'm sure they'll be more aggressive online and drop the high cost stuff like a hot potato.

They need to FIRE all current employees from Gander Mountain! That was THE BIGGEST problem with their stores I found. Next was the prices! Ridiculous!

The one we have here in Beaumont, has about 4 employees at any given time and has the feeling of a Garage sale.
I really like the quality of their clothes etc. , much like I do Cabela's
Their Guide wear and other series of Clothing etc. is really nice made compared to generic Academy
I even bought some lay out chairs, very high quality stuff.
Wow I guess they will keep Beaumont open, according to the list of closures?

Do NOT buy anything from GM now. Since Camping World took over their store in May 1, they re-did their pricing system. They put a yellow price tag with ridiculous price on everything and took some percentage off that price.

For ex, I found a Shimano Sahara 2500FD model which was 5 years old and saw a yellow sticker at $79.99. This reel was on clearance a while back for $39.99 and noone took it. Now it's $79.99 with 20% off. You guys see how they play the game.

My question for you is can you find those reels anywhere for 20% off? If yes, let me know.
