True, but its really picked over. Still some decent lures and stuff left. Went there tonight after work. The check out line was about 30 people deep! That store is going to be all guns and gun related stuff. Small amount of footware and some camo gear. I guess its going to be Michigan's largest gun library.

There were some pretty decent deals, but yesterday already the stuff was going out by the cart full. I heard one guy saying it was going to be a long night getting it all on Ebay. Too bad they are getting rid of the fishing department there. They were always helpful.

There is a Cabelas going in in Saginaw as well, it is supposed to be open about the same time or a bit before I think, Has anyone heard about the Gander Mountain in saginaw doing the same thing?

Everything in the store 20-25% off right now, excluding firearms. Signs say "remodeling sale":lol: I believe that the Cabelas will be opening on February 14th. A co worker will be doing the DJ work for their grand opening.

Went to gander today what a zoo the line was all the back to the tackle counter. It is pretty picked over for sure.

I guess the mngt at dicks is freaking out also about cabelas going in.

Gander is doing a major remodel, not eliminating the fishing dept.

moneypit,

Straight from the fishing managers mouth. The grandville location will no longer have a fishing department. It will be called Gander Mountain gun World.

Bummer...I always like the store and while I didn't find everything I needed in their fishing department, it was always nice to look at hunting/fishing/etc in the same place. I'm excited for Cabelas, but feel bad for Gander.

Don't feel bad Mark, I'm glad the big box store is giving up. Cabelas will be a nice place to visit, but still my major purchases will be with the local stores.

I'd take that as good info then. I thought I was talking to a manager but maybe not.

There is a gun world in Wisconsin here. A lot of guns but the prices are significantly higher. They will price match any local store with an in stock item however. There are a lot of guns but a lot of the store is filled with fluff wanna be tactical gear and over priced ammo. Gander however was one of the only stores around here to have .22 ammo. Imagine that .22 ammo shortage....

Ya, Randy is a good duck. He told me he has the seniority to stay at Gvill and learn guns, or he could transfer to the Kentwood store. Glad he can keep his job during these trying times.

Went there tonight, they are upto 60% off on tackle, funny thing is I bought an item when it was 50% off, it costs the same now? They apparently raised the prices on some items, then increased the discount so it looks like a better deal, but it wasn't. Not real impressed with that practice.
