Looks like now not all stores will close.

That's bizarre, it wasn't a report I got the email from Gander Mountain saying 126 stores will close.

The one in the Highlands in Arlington is just as high now as they were. I asked about price matching on firearms and they said no. I was not impressed with any of the sale pricing.

Didn't make it today. I'll be interested in some clothing and accessories, going to check in on Wednesday.

Go quick, most of the store is already 25-40% off. It's getting picked over down here. Sadly guns and ammo were only 10% off... but all reloading stuff was 40% off, including primers and powder. (although powder was almost gone.)

Apparel was anywhere from 20-50% off the lowest marked price. Some great deals on gun, hunting and marine accessories (40% OFF).

I went in there one time. Their selection and prices were plain ridiculous. I went to the Academy across the street for what I was looking for.

My son went to the one in Frisco yesterday, after I told him about the store closing. He said there wasn't any discount on guns and ammo. Only thing on significant sale was the Gander Mountain brand of clothing and camping stuff. The clerks told him that the store's inventory had been purchased by Tiger Direct, and that they locked down the cash registers so that no discounts could be applied by the store staff. Son said none of the pricing impressed him yesterday.

I can confirm this. Any discounts were a joke, and nothing I cared about was discounted more than 10%.
That makes it sound like they won't discount further if Tiger is buying the left overs. Bummer.

I just ordered some stuff direct from 5.11 that I got at a steeper discount because of their 5.11 Days promotion than what Gander was throwing out as their "Everything Must Go!!" sale.

That was the last one I was in, a few months back, and could not even get store clerks to wait on me without seeking them out, and then they couldn't answer questions. You're right the best part of the trip up there is Chuys.

Big "Going Out of Business" sign on Tyler's Gander Mountain today. I went in and came right back out. No markdown on ammo and everything else was outrageously priced - as usual.

Adios Gander Mountain!

Went into the Lake Worth store are few days ago and the prices are still a joke. Found a great pair of pants and shirt but the added price tag read $70.00/each and underneath had $44.99 as the MSRP and only 10% off. Rip Off alert.

“Camping World’s plan is to immediately right size the inventory and operate only in retail locations with occupancy costs that we believe support profitable operations, with an extreme focus on corporate overhead and expenses, consistent with our other operating segments,” said Brent Moody, chief operating officer of Camping World.

“The Gander Mountain and Overton customer and their affinity to the outdoor lifestyle are the perfect complement to our Camping World business,” Marcus Lemonis, Chairman and CEO of Camping World, said. “The structure of our deal provides much flexibility and will not only allow us to refine the inventory selection and select only those stores which are profitable or we believe have a clear path to profitability, but will also allow us to immediately offer our comprehensive portfolio of services, protection plans, products and resources to the existing Gander Mountain and Overton customer base and in stores in which we elect to operate. While we are obligated to assume a minimum of seventeen leases, our designation rights will allow us to operate stores and retain employees at a number to maximize profitability.”
