So I just got back from walking through the new Gander Outdoors in Sheboygan. Seems pretty similar to the old Gander Mountain store, nothing out of the ordinary.
Now when it was Gander Mountain I always found them to be shady with their marketing. For instance they would have a stack of hunting knives with a sign that said "Buck Outdoor Knives. $14.99" Then the whole display was $29.99 Buck knives EXCEPT for the bottom row which was $14.99. There was also many other deceitful issues Gander Mountain had that I won't get into here as well as other mismarked prices on products.
So when I walked in I seen tshirts on the left. Looked at them and the big sign says $14.99 above them. All shirts had a $14.99 sticker on them. However some had a $11.25 sticker. Lady says $14.99. I said "Sticker here says $11.25" And I brought the other shirts to show her there were more like that. She calls the manager and says "Ok, we will give it to him for $11.25".
Now for the fun part. They had Daiwa Revros reels that said on the sticker and NOTHING ELSE. "34.99" Reg Price 39.99". And that was it. White and black. No club member logo or even club member verbiage. So the price rings up $39.99. Manager gets called again as I mentioned the sticker price. I walk over there with him and he says "That's the member price". "Do you wanna be a member?" I said "Where does it say member discount on that sticker?" He said "You have to be a member". I said "IT DOES NOT SAY THAT ON THAT STICKER OR WITHIN 30 FEET ANYWHERE WHERE THE REELS ARE". He says "I'm sorry you feel that way" In which I replied. "I'm sorry to see that Gander Outdoors has not learned anything from their deceitful practices when they were Gander Mountain. And in 2-3 years history will repeat itself and you folks will be looking for new jobs again". I then walked out and bought nothing.
