    Screw gander outdoors. They said that they don't want Trump supporters shopping there. They will never get my business.

    Big corporate store that knows nothing about the local fishery. NO THANKS. we already have Cabelas. I dont care how big the fishing dept is if they do not have what I need its useless to me. Franks and Michigan Sportsman win again!!!

    Gander Outdoors is going to specifically target local markets....I stopped in the Flint store and was very impressed with selection in the fishing department. As far as politics....I fish and hunt..care less about political social media.

    I never bought much from Gander Mt and that is not going to change much in the future but I am glad they are back in TC. We have very few options up here. As far as political reason if you read it on the net you know it must be true RIGHT. Does not bother me at all. If I wanted the being right or wrong I could just buy from the military PX and have it shipped but I like to see what I am getting first

    That Traverse City store fishing selection is great. Relieved to have an outdoor store back in the area.

    I also stopped at the flint store. The fishing selection was fine. However, for a few pennies more and a lot of knowledge I like Hicks in Clio. I just think supporting the local stores that work for our business is the way to go! I try to stay out of the politics. Just my thoughts.

    That's fine and I agree with you. I probably bought more stuff from the smaller stores than any of the larger chain stores. But up this way they are few and far in between. I would much rather buy from the bait shops like the ones on Higgins lake to help them and keep the money local

    One of my boys and I went to Hicks Saturday. We know some of the people there because he use to work for them when they were on Clio road. I was very impressed yesterday with the section of fishing tackle and gear. Pricing is not out of line and they are knowledgeable.

    Lots of help if you need it.

    My boy lives in the Soo but always runs to Hicks when he comes home.

    Got their mailer in the mail today, not for the Saginaw store but the general brand. Wish they had stores in Novi and Lansing I used to spend a lot of time and $$$ in.
