I doubt very many Trump supporters shopped there anyways.
Overpriced shit and the dumb asses working the gun counter.

Plenty of other alternatives. GM won't be missed.

Isn't this the overpriced shithole store that just closed most of their locations? Fuck that cunt.

Lol.

The very-real reality is that Trump probably cost Gander Mtn their entire business.

Gander Mtn was expecting Hillary to win, and their overpriced gun related merchandise to fly off the shelves.

And... The type of folks who shopped at Gander Mtn... Outdoorsy folks... voted overwhelmingly for Trump.

I own two campers, a few dozen firearms, shoot somewhere around 8000 rounds a year.

I have no problem spending my money at the competition of both Camping mall and Gander Molehill.

For a second I was scared, I misread the headline as "if you don't like Trump, don't shop at gander". I was thinking that I'd have to go out and overpay for some crap.

ETA-Seriously, what are people like this thinking? A hunting and fishing store owner pissing off the right wing? How fucking stupid can you get?

LMAO over all of the responses. Gander Mountain is not mentioned anywhere in the article and the CEO had nothing to do with Gander Mountain or Ganders past performance etc.

He bought what was Gander and is combing four brand names into one store that will be called gander Outdoors. He is dramatically shrinking store sizes and the size of the hunting/gun section as he knows that gun sales has dropped dramatically since Trump was elected.

Jesus, he had to clean up the mess that  CEO Steven Pratt left him. Now Pratt gave control to his son David who never ran anything other than a lemonade stand. He could not get hired anywhere so dad gave him GM and surprise, it went into the shitter right quick.

Telling most of the kind of people that would even go to your stores, if one is still in business, and alienating them does not help your already floundering company.  Idiot.

Fuck off! pansy bitch.

Your business is already tanking.  Proving what a winner you really are.  

I am glad the only time I have bought anything from that dump in the past 8 or more years was 70 percent off at a store closing.

They're damn near all out of business anyway.   The store in Saginaw is already closed and the one in Flint will close in a couple weeks and they will be reopening as another store owned by Camping World.

Don't want to miss the chance to up my post count by not shopping at Gander Mt.  I've been in the store(s) a couple of times, but only for a gander.

Just to remind people. This guy is the NEW CEO of gander mountain.

And he's telling his customers not to shop there. He's also a leftist.

Well then it sounds like he's doing a good job of continuing to run the brand into the ground.

Well that sucks...  about the last place I like to go to but it's conveniently located for me and about the only place anywhere near me with a decent selection.  Everything I use gets ordered online now days but sometimes when I'm in a pinch...well I guess from now on I'll just be fucked.

For some time now (about 8-10 years) profits have not been job #1 for most large corporations.

Being politically correct, socially conscious and sucking up to the left have been.

I do often wonder what the end game is here, especially for the leftist tech companies like Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft and the like. Eventually will they consolidate power to the point where can effectively blacklist average people who do not fit into the leftist agenda?

Combined, they already have the demographic info they would need to make that determination. Think about it, for a lot of us, it would be hellishly inconvenient both professionally and personally.

If you go to the Gander store locator web sight, there is a large graphic at the top that proudly proclaims "Going out of business".  This guy is a real risk taker.

Behold the risks this man takes for his cause.

We stopped by one in Pa. a couple of months ago. My wife said, "buy some ammo since they are going out of business". I stood there looking around and I think AR15 mags were around $50
and .40 cal FMJ Winchester White Box was around $40 dollars for 50 rounds.

We left and told them to go fuck themselves and vowed to have nothing to do with them again.

What became of one of the old Bells (telecom) met the same fate as gander because they couldn't stop donating money to leftist groups and foundations. They went full affirm-action and fired tons of people in the name of diversity. One of the biggest telecoms in history went under due to liberalism. Everyone under executive watched as their careers were destroyed over politics.

Minorities on the team found that they couldn't be fired, left without notice, remaining on the payroll because they were untouchable.
