Heard they are closing multiple stores and filing for bankruptcy. Do you think we can expect for them to start having some killer sales or will it be business as usual? I heard they are looking for a buyer so thinking that could be a reason they may not end up doing huge clearance sales right away

I would think there will be some good sales. Even if they find a buyer chances are they will get more money for their mdse. at markdown opposed to what a new buyer would pay.

The one near me had great customer service, almost too good. I feel like I get asked if I need help with anything every 5 steps.

Never bought much from them, but I'd imagine they would have some sales.

I agree their prices have always been terrible. Hence the reason they are probably going out of business. They are having a sale which ends tonight where if you spend 50 bucks you get 20 dollars off. Promo code is GETLUCKY. I just bought an Avian X Fly Away pack for 54 bucks (That's final price including tax and shipping was free). Still kicking myself for not jumping on some of the sales Midway was having at the end of the season

Maybe I've been lucky over the years and found some really good deals in there.

I stopped in the one in Corsican a few times when it was open....the only thing worse than their prices was the pathetic customer service......

Sorry but won't be missed by me......

Customer service has never been a strong point there.

Half the time it's hard to know just how bad the prices are...they don't seem to put the price on a bunch of their products. Then they have the price match guarantee on guns. That always irritated me, just know your market and don't price your product 20% higher than everybody else locally. Then don't say you'll match it, and then put a bunch of qualifiers on it.

One of the best rifles I ever bought at a great price was at Gander Mountain --- in the parking lot from a private seller I arranged to meet there!
