Everything excluding firearms and ammunition are on sale from 10-30% off. Worth checking out if you're the outdoors/cottage going type!

Was at the one here in Calgary on Friday, it was a madhouse.  That being said, most things were only 10% off, and the reality is Wholesale is typically 20 - 25% more expensive than the exact same thing you can find on Amazon or Ebay (and sometimes Cabelas or Bass Pro, but they're both pretty overpriced in Canada as well), which is why they are going out of business anyway.

Holding out for a couple of weeks to when prices go to 30 - 50% off and then see what's available.  Won't have my PAL certification by then, so it won't matter what the guns and ammo prices come down to.

Yeah, I'm hoping that happens sooner than later. I grabbed a few things for my upcoming fly-out but I'd go back if prices dropped more in the near future.

They want to wrap up operations by Christmas, so I'd suspect the next price drop will be early October.

Was back there last Friday, same deals as before, relatively little stock has moved (it doesn't yet look like a store in liquidation mode, it looks like a store that needs a minor restock), they're also starting to clear out the warehouse with some brands/stuff I'd never seen there before.

Website has been completed taken down, which is weird, because I thought that was the medium they were going to keep the markdowns updated on.

Price cuts deepened today.  Looks like 20% is now the standard, extending to 40% off (fishing tackle is 40% I believe).

20% IIRC.

Discounts have increased again, with everything on sale up to 50% off.

There's a lot of stuff (at least here in Calgary) whose discounts haven't moved much at all.  Kinda wondering what they are waiting for.  It's been 5 weeks, and they haven't moved a lot of stuff.  Maybe they think their pre-Christmas sales will consume their remaining stock, but I think most people are holding on until the prices hit a minimum of 25% on everything.
