For the second time in a month I went in there hoping to test shoot a couple of bows, the first time I stood there for 30 minutes and never even got helped at all and today I stood there for 20 minutes then got told that nobody in Archery was working and wouldn't be till 2, I'll just go somewhere else from now on

If you drove from Medon to Jackson, you might want to email the corporate offices with your frustrations. You might be surprised to find a $50.00 gift card is being mailed to you. It's pretty common. My girlfriend just got one from Sears because of a similar issue.

I have had several aggravating experiences with Gander Mountain. Enough so I hardly ever go in there.

Probably had the archery guy call out and no one to fill in for him.
Poor cross training/management.

It's a shame when one or two bad employees can drag down a whole store. It happens a lot.

I'd call them. Speak to the store manager. Tell them what happened.
If you just don't go and never say anything, they'll never miss you or know something is wrong.

I went in Gander Mtn 4 or 5 times. The service was bad, the selection sucked, and the prices were high. Luckily I live close to Bass Pro, Dicks, and Academy Sports so I never have to go back.

The last time I saw ANYBODY in the Archery dept in Gander Mtn was the first year they were open, since then you have to go to the front deskl and ask for help all the way back there.

Personally, I think Dicks is bottom of the barrel.
