Default Bass Pro Pricing

Went there this morning and looked at their inflatable pontoons-they had one for $349 and Sportmans has the identical model for $259. Big difference.

Their lines-both braid and mono/fluro are higher than other places.

But whats even more disconcerting is more and more of their shelf space is being taken up by their private brand merchandise. Some of it I have found to be OK but much of it is poor quality IMO.

Online shopping seems to be the only way to get what you want in the color and size you want and at a better price. Used to be a loyal BPS customer but now online gets most all of my money.

Just really hit me today how high their prices have gotten.

I kinda treat all the tackle shops like grocery stores... Some stores have better deals than others at different times.

Yeah a lot of lures are cheaper at sportsmans. Come to think of it I don't think I've found anything cheaper at basspro. Oh the clearance clothes. They usually have some good stuff there.

Speaking of which. Tackle warehouse is 15% off almost everything in stock for the rest of the day. Free ground shipping $5 2 day shipping. $10 next day shipping.

The box stores suck!!! Only use Cabela's when somethings on sale at the bargain cave. BPS has some particular colors of soft plastics that I like. So, I stock up on them when they have their sale at the end of the season. Sportsman's has some decent pricing, but only has a portion of colors at times. So 95% of what I buy is online and overseas. Don't have to deal with crowds, low stock, or wasting gas and I can get the colors and sizes I need all the time.

X2 - but I will say that BPS only had the ION 8" floor model so I grabbed one at Sportsman's and saved $40. I should have done the comparisons first, just got lucky on that one...

I think BPS and Cabelas see themselves as destination stores where they have mounts on the wall and an aquarium and a bowling alley and a restaurant and I guess they feel that
justifies charging more.
