Who's next? Scheel's?
- Parent company of Bass Pro Shops and Cabela's, The Great American Outdoors Group, has agreed to acquire Sportsman's Warehouse for $18 in cash per share, according to a press release.
- The parties expect the deal, which is subject antitrust review and a vote by Sportman's Warehouse shareholders, to close in the second half of 2021.
- The deal would bring Bass Pro and Cabela's product brands, including on fishing and hunting gear, to Sportsman's Warehouse, the companies said.
Seriously, I've never been to a major sporting goods store that truly has a good selection of shotgun reloading supplies. Need to hit the MOM and POP or specialty stores like Shyda's and CAC.If you can beat their prices, you buy them out. However our Sportsmans Warehouse in Tucson really sucks for Shotgunners. They never ween to have a variety of wads in stock. I have to order on line as I'm 80 miles south of Tucson. Then most of them only ship to the store and a very few will ship to my house. Of Course for a fee. The fee is normally cheaper than gas and the time for 3 hours of driving! round trip. No primers, a torn open bag of 28 GA wads, and a limited supply of shot!
Soros is buying the le & Power companies out from what I've heard. Without those two, our guns become Bats!Some time ago, the conspiracy theorists were saying that the buying companies were owned by parent companies that were ultimately owned by the “one world globalists” like Soros et. al. The ultimate goal being to own the majority of the companies selling guns and to shut down gun sales. Anyone heard any more speculation along those lines?
Nope, the exact opposite. BP and associated companies will control a larger share of the market, driving prices up.Maybe just maybe this will increase Bass Pro's buying power and when this shortage is back to normal , the price of ammo will be cheaper there ?
You are.I'm still of the thinking , this shortage is a ploy from the job-er's ( middlemen) to jack up prices like we're seeing ? I hope I'm wrong .
Well, there's been this little thing called COVID going around too, worldwide...Target load shotshells are the LOWEST priority of any ammunition being currently made.With ALL these EURO shells on the market , how can there be a shortage world wide ?
They have a long history of selling cheap merchandise at high prices. Compare Tracker boats to Lund or Crestliner. Red Head clothing to Cabela's gear.People here keep saying how awful Bass Pro is, how great Cabela’s use to be which begs a couple questions.
Who or what is the customer base and the marketing model that fed Bass Pro so much money Bass Pro could survive past and purchase Cabela’s and now Sportsman’s Warehouse?
Bass Pro must be doing something right, what is it?
