    I've pretty much stopped shopping at the one here in my hometown.

    A lot of their outdoor gear--including river gear in one of the top whitewater states in the country--got tossed overboard (pun intended) to make way for racks and racks of way expensive and not-very-functional 'outdoor' fashion clothing.

    I ordered a canoe online and when I went to pick it up at the store the manager dissed it --and me--calling it a 'barge.' OK, I used to be a whitewater 'yakker but age and a bad back put an end to that, so Mrs. Wheeldog and I opted for a nice canoe for some easy river and lake paddling. Didn't appreciate getting slammed for it.

    Local store also relies mostly on part-time employees so they don't have to pay benefits.

    It's a nice corporate image but the local application here isn't so pleasant.

    When atlatls are outlawed, only outlaws will have atlatls.
