    I was talking to someone in the bike dept tonite, asking him if they will be clearing out a certain bike, since I need a new one. Anyways, he let me it on something that brings tears to my eyes.

    Galyans HAS been bought out by..........dicks :barf:

    I guess dicks finialized the purchase about 3 months ago, and the current sale ad has Galyans all over it, but it is the first ad printed by dicks.
    Aparently, dicks is not a good company to deal with as far as suppliers are concerned. My guy told me that they will be clearing out several name brands including North Face, Marmot, ect....also, ALL HAND GUNS WILL BE CLEARED OUT.
    I am very sure that Galyans will clear out other hunting supplies, Beretta and some other high class long guns that the carry are not the kind of thing dicks deals in.
    Keep a careful eye on Galyans ads and their prices on items, they may not advertise firearms sales, they may just drop prices. This could start within one to three months.
    Im looking for a new sporting goods store. Gander Mtn is in the area, but I loved Galyans.

    dicks buying Galyans :wtc:, I cant believe it.

    The whole franchise. When I lived in Berrien Springs, I owuld drive up to Galyans just because all the other stores suck. Now that I live in Allendale/GR, I go there quite a bit. I will be really sad to see them go.

    Dicks has all kinds of stores, if you do a froogle search for something and a price comes up from dicks usually the majority of other stores with the same price is owned by dicks. Generally their website layouts are the same.

    I'm thinking about swinging over to the east side of the state to see what's shaking over there.

    You don't need any special permits or anything in Michigan for an AR right? :hs:

    Dude that sucks. They were the only good store around Minneapolis for a chain store. Gander Moutain sucks. They are overpriced, and their staff is cluless.

    Gibralter Trade Center in Taylor has a Gun/Knife show next weekend. Here is a webpage with all the info. on it:


    http://www.gibraltartrade.com/Shows/GunShow/index.html

    You can find the address through there as well. I've never been to a Galyans before. I just searched and the closest one is in Novi. Hopefully they don't get rid of all their guns yet, at least not until I turn 21 next month, ha.
