Visited a couple outdoor stores in Greensboro this week.
The first was Get: Outdoors. Primarily a canoe and kayak retailer, it was a pretty cool place with some drool-causing boats, fishing tackle, clothing, footwear and a good supply of books and videos. The staff was friendly and seemed knowledgeable. This weekend they've having a demo boat sale and have a ton of inventory to get rid of. If you're looking for a good deal on a kayak or canoe head over and check them out.
The second stop was at outdoor super store Gander Mountain. I've been there several times but not since their recent remodel. The store looked great.
The staff was very helpful and polite and they had a little bit of everything. A couple negatives: Since the renovation, the guns are now behind a counter so you have to ask for assistance before putting your hands all over a new Benelli or Winchester. Second, I was interested in a climbing stand they were advertising in a flyer however they had none in stock and don't issue rain checks. I wouldn't let these two things keep me from shopping at Gander Mountain though. It's still better than Bed, Bath and Beyond.
