    Sportsman's Warehouse went through some serious cash flow problems, avoided bankrupcy, but closed several stores. Billings just got a new Cabelas and in their diminished state there is no way Sportsman Warehouse could compete with Cabelas.

    It's too damned bad those outfits didn't succeed. I can't imagine how the Cabelas in Montana can make a go of it with all the adverse publicity they have been generating there hogging up all the hunting land, parceling it up and selling it off or leasing to big shots. That has generated a HUGE backlash in that state. I'm sure it has hurt their business. It should! Why anyone would choose to give their hard-earned hunting and fishing money to an outfit that is trying to keep them from hunting and fishing is beyond me ...

    All the Sportsman's Warehouse stores in WA, Northern OR, and I thought Montana had closed over a year ago and were bought by a Canadian outfit that operates those 13 stores as Wholesale Sports. There are 3v WS in Western Washington and seem to be somewhat better stocked than SW was. Billings SW closed due to failed lease negotiations or sos the story goes. All the employees worth beans left the Burlington, WA store.

    Why they thought they could open and compete in the same towns with Cabela's is beyond me...

    Apparently sales were too widely distributed among Big Bear, Scheel's, Cabela's, and the Warehouse according to a friend who is a businessman in Billings. I have been told that the prices at the Warehouse had been climbing recently and that the shelves were not fully stocked although I have not been in it for quite some time. The Billings Cabela's is not nearly as big or stocked as well as others I have been in over the years. Now I see the owner of the empty building wants Sportsman's Warehouse to pay them 7.5 million.
