Are prices at Big name stores negotiable?

Recommended Posts

Stores like Joes, Gander, Cabelas. The sales guys always say they can get you a great deal but can they really drop the prices or can you work a better price? grin.gif

Everyone will always match the price of someone else

The price of anything is negotiable. It depends on how badly the seller wants to sell and how much the buyer needs it.

Of course, in most retail situations you're dealing with an employee that does not have the authority to change the price and then you might get the impression the price is non-negotiable and in most cases that's true because there are enough other buyers out there willing to pay the price.

Cabelas seems to be at times. If you pair up a rod and reel they will at times give you a discount... at least I've had luck at the East Grand Forks Cabelas.

That seems to be the case. I've had nice discounts for purchasing a few rods from Joes and Cabelas. But I was wondering if the price was actually solid...or workable. Seems to be both...depending on the situation. tongue.gif

Coming from retail experience at one of the above mentioned stores, prices are generally not negotiable. For a selling point we will spool a reel with free line , or knock 10% or so off of a reel when you buy a rod...but generally prices are set at the rates you see.

Not to mention that some items are price protected. If a company finds out you are selling below the retail, that company will pull their items off the shelves. This is so that the smaller ma and Pa bait shops can sell the same products and not get undercut by the major chains.

Some companies do this.. but not all.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!
