    Went buy the old Gander Mountain store in Utica today and saw Gander Outdoors Grand Opening.
    Anyone know what this is? Way too much traffic to stop but I may take a gander (pun intended) some day this week.

    If you’re looking for ice fishing stuff, save your time. They have zero on the floor and i was told it’s going to be awhile yet. So, nothings changed

    They had been working on final sec approvals. They weren't expecting the ok to open until March but they got the word early. They have been shipping stuff to stores as soon they get it. They had about a dozen open across the country just before Christmas. They weren't expecting to be open for ice fishing season at all this year so I doubt they had any inventory ordered. My son checked one out and said the gun selection was nice.

    Gander Mountain officially went out of business and sold their locations to Camping World who I'm told are reopening some of the stores under the name Gander Outdoors

    Gander ran themselves out of business IMO. Once in a while they ran a decent sale on specific items but just about everything else they sold was much higher priced than we could find it elsewhere. Gander also did not honor veterans or seniors with even a tiny discount. My store here in Middletown, NY kept running sales on ammo "While Supplies Last" but they never had any to begin with. I got there the day the sale began and was the first through the door at opening only to learn they had no ammo in the calibers listed in the big sale. WTF???

    I am waiting and hoping that some conservative outlet will compile a list of these left wing lunatic retailers and post it for all to see. The NRA tries to give us insight on politicians leanings and it is high time we have a place to check the leanings of the various companies we support without knowing where our money goes. Take for instance Peter Lewis. He is the CEO and big owner of Progressive Insurance. He is also a big contributor to anything that goes against conservative views. I would not have any insurance by Progressive and this is just one company of the very many who suck up to us patting us on the back while looking for the soft spot to stab us. How about that commercial I hate the very most, Kars for Kids. They show cute little kids playing music instruments who are anything but the kids those donations go to. Kars for Kids is a Hasidim Jewish organization and the money goes directly to the religious education of their children. Why would they not show their own little children playing the music?
