Cabelas and Bass Pro aren't too much different in my book. They both sell brand names, plus their own products. It always seems when there's a sale, it's only the stores brand and not the manufacturer

We have just about this same Johnny Morris bashing thread about once a year. I never do understand it. I have never met Mr. Morris nor even a single person that has either. He could be a jerk, could b

I think he knows his base pretty well?

I FIGURE HE WILL DO THE SAME THING HE HAS DONE TO HIS SPRINGFIELD STORE, TURN IT INTO TO TOURIST TRAP WALMART, HAVING  WOMENS UNDERWEAR, CROCS SANDLES IN 85 COLORS AND QUIT SELLING ALL THE STUFF THAT MADE HIM ALL THE MONEY HE NOW HAS TO WASTE. WHILE WE START SHOPPING AT TACKLE WAREHOUSE TO GET THE STUFF WE REALLY WANT. ANHEUSER BUSCH INBEV NOW OWNS MILLER BREWING, BASS PRO OWNS RANGER AND CABELAS, IS NOTHING SACRED ANYMORE.

Cabelas and Bass Pro aren't too much different in my book. They both sell brand names, plus their own products. It always seems when there's a sale, it's only the stores brand and not the manufacturers brand...or at least that's the way it seems as of late. E-Commerce will eventually bring them all down, to a certain extent. In the old days you could rely on the expertise of the guy behind the counter, but the informed consumer can use the internet to find out virtually all the information he needs to make the correct decision on-line.

Makes me wonder if the Cabelas in Rogers will become a BPS outlet.  I assume they are going to consolidate all the products under one name.  Might be some good close-out sales at Cabelas in the future.

I hope so. I got a gift card for bass pro. Rather drive 5 minutes than 2 hrs to Branson

Hence Amazon KILLING the market. This is especially true in the golf retail market. The sport is losing #'s each year and the online golf apparel/equipment is decimating the retail stores. Here in Saint Louis there used to be quite a few Golf Discounts, now there are 2 stores. Golfsmith actually filed for bankruptcy a week or two ago I believe and was bought out by Dick's Sports. Often times I go into a store just to check out the product in hand and then go online and find it for cheaper online. That's the way of the world now. Read reviews. Check out in store. Purchase online.
