A Louisiana store of I-10. Awesome building. Tractors an implements displayed neatly in the front of the building, but no prices anywhere to be found? Walking in looked like a vacation wonderland, exceptional décor. Very well staffed, overstaffed. Very high end cliental and seemed busily Great selection of guns..
But here is the stickler, your core business is hunting and fishing but their is not a .22 shell in the building. Tells me that CAB is a specialty retailer in a nitch not a market leader. A market leader would have made connections with suppliers.
My take, you have to turn allot of dollars for wonderland theme. You can't afford simple mistakes like signage.
They played with this ammo thing to long. Tul Ammo has made a hit in market share. Israel, flooded that market with 5.56. People know the PMC name. Restricting sales has just caused a glut and hording. When demand catches up with supply, and the hoarders and profiteers get nailed, the market will quickly vanish......
Blame the manufactures for this. No one sees a brick or a 50 pack. These guys ship 325, 375 packs and their is a limit of two or three, Two jokers with cell phones wipe out the supply that gets shipped in cycles. Word is these are getting broken down in smaller units and sold at double price. Federal has just flooded the market with 5.56 (Independence ammo Israel) . PMC growing ( Korea) Tul Ammo ( Brass max) Italy. and our two Manufactures, losing market share by the day. Israel, our supplier, go figure..... mho
