Seems like there was some discussion on this awhile back. This was in an email today. Very good news.


To our valued customers,

A year ago, Sportsman’s Warehouse entered into a merger agreement with Great American Outdoors, parent company of Cabela’s and Bass Pro Shops. Effective December 2, 2021, that merger agreement was terminated. We at Sportsman’s Warehouse are excited to continue operating as a separate, independent and publicly-traded company (NASDAQ: SPWH).

As we enter 2022, we look forward to continuing our strong growth – adding more stores, improving Sportsmans.com, and expanding our product assortment and services. Our mission to provide outstanding gear and exceptional service remains unchanged.

Gear up for unforgettable!


Jon Barker

CEO

Not saying I blame them, but lately when I see 8# powder for sale at our local SW,

it tends to be the same price as Powder Valley, plus shipping, plus HAZMAT.

Maybe a coincidence, or just good planning.

Used to be some pretty good deals on clearance items.

Nearest one is 100 miles away, stop in there when I'm in the Big Town.

Glad to hear they're maintaining their independence........................for now.

Vista outdoors or similar will likely try to snap them up if they make a good profit for a few cycles.

Sycamore, they're likely passing costs on to the consumer at what the crazy market will bear. It Sucketh.

Bass Pro Shops Merger Is Called Off Amid Regulatory Pushback
Jonathan Roeder - Dec 2, 2021

(Bloomberg) -- Sportsman’s Warehouse Holdings Inc., a retailer for outdoor equipment, slipped in late trading after announcing its planned merger with the owner of the Bass Pro Shops chain was canceled.

Sportsman’s Warehouse and Great Outdoors Group LLC opted to terminate the deal after the Federal Trade Commission indicated the companies wouldn’t get clearance to complete it, according to a regulatory filing. Great Outdoors will pay a $55 million termination fee.

Shares of Sportsman’s Warehouse slumped 2.6% to $16.50 at 5:12 p.m. in New York in extended trading. The West Jordan, Utah-based company had a market value of $743 million at the close.

The collapse of the deal comes at a delicate time for retail chains, as supply-chain challenges and labor shortages pressure the industry. Sportsman’s Warehouse would have gone private through the transaction, which valued the company at $18 a share.

The merger is the latest casualty after President Joe Biden in July signed an executive order calling on regulators to take steps to boost competition in the industries they oversee. The president has blamed unchecked consolidation for harming consumers, workers and small businesses.

I heard this a while back and wonder why the announcement was so late in coming? I am certainly not complaining as I really detest BPS and what they have done with Cabela's but I think the message could have gotten out a little sooner.

The one Sportsmans's Warehouse in this area is rather small and not as well stocked regarding hunting/shooting products as Cabela's used to be but it is an option. The prices are also a bit high for handgun bullets though rifle are often pretty fair. Powder has been the going rate and not bad, all considered. When they had primers, SW was the least expensive around.

What do you guys expect? Who isn’t out of everything I want. BPS ruined Cabela’s so I’m glad SW didn’t go that route. [bleep] BPS. Sportsman’s Warehouse always had what I wanted until the SHTF in 2013 and 2019.

Stock hit a 52 week low. Maybe it's time to buy SPWH.

The pre-bankruptcy SW always had decent prices.

They’re excited to continue operating as their own chain, only because their merger was stopped.

Cabelas was ruined before BPS took them over. BPS bought a remnant of what was a good store.

Living down here in Bass Pro central, I sure wish there was an option other than them. Used to have a SW an hour south, but they closed in their bankruptcy 10 years ago. Scheels is 2.5 hours away and I try to give them as much business as they have inventory for.

Never buy anything from SWH. Weird sporadic inventory/product mix and unfriendly website.
Quit Cabelas and BPS over a decade ago.
Scheels seems the best choice .

Just got the same email. I’m excited about it because Cabela’s went to hell in a hand basket almost instantaneously after being bought out. Score 1 for the home team!

Back in July 2008 I walked into Sportsman's Warehouse heading back to the gun dept. to look at rifle. As I came in the door an assistant met me at the door and gave me a $75 coupon off a gun, even on sale items. That sealed the deal. Two guns I’ve bought there that I depend my life on were on sale. I haven't seen that anywhere else.

I’ve stocked up in reloading supplies since then, buying from them exclusively except for some dies.

Sportsmans is my favorite by FAR of all the big stores.

Glad to hear they won't be getting ruined by Bass Pro.

I am glad to hear it.Don't shop there much but I can say they always have something I want when I go in. BPS not so. They never seem to have what I went in for.

SW was decent when I lived in Colorado Springs. Bought some archery stuff and powder and primers.

I shop at Scheels now. They are what Cabalas was 15 or more years ago.

Probably good news for the consumer, as the Cabela's merger wasn't an improvement,
Cabala's warranties were lost and I have not shopped there since
