Actually I think he said, or stated, "walk the store". That might be significant in this context.

Yep, I took it as thought he liked to walk through the store, we call it "window shopping" even though it's done inside the store and not through the windows.

It's cause people text all the time and it's carried over. FWIW

I have to agree on this one. I priced out a vacuum part for our Thetford toilet and they were 30 dollars more and would have taken a 2-3 weeks. I called the other store and they could have it the next day for 10 bucks cheaper and they thru in the toilet flange in the deal. MH toilet repaired and no leaks
Back in business just in time for another weekend outing

Camping World is run as a for profit business. They are going to do what ever makes the most economic sense in shutting down a store. If they can load up and move the merchandise to another store cheaper than selling at reduced prices, it is there decision. The used and returned stuff is probablly not proffitable to move, so they unload it locally.

I agree. That sums it up nicely.

Hi Ray,IN,
Like others have already posted my words were "to walk the store" not what you posted. It is nice, for me, to be able to walk into the store and shop/browse, etc. Since Tennessee RV will remain at that location and are already advertising they will be opening a store of their own, gut feel says the rental lease was up and one of the players did not want to renew.

Just shows to go you how difficult it is to converse via the written word. I read-in a word that is not present, sorry.

Well said TXiceman! As noted above concerning prices, sometimes they are higher, sometimes they are lower. Sounds like both posters did it the All American Way. They shop around and get the best price and/or quality. If it's a major item, yes I check around, but with two stores in the local area, sometimes they are just the most convenient.

2. Asked about the going out of business/moving sale. Where are the deals. I was shown a grubby pile of returned merchandise at reduced prices. That was it.

CW would rather pack up all their merchandise and ship it to other stores than give customers/members a good deal to take it off their hands. I could have spend a couple of grand. But I spent nothing.
You are disappointed that a giant chain store is closing one outlet and not fire sale-ing remaining inventory?

I don't think your expectations were realistic.

Went to C W in Madison, Wi. for faucet parts. They do not carry any replacement parts for faucets, and only had 2 bath faucets available at outrageous prices. Very disappointing . Traveled 40 miles to get there, but they had free hot dogs !!!

For several years my closest CW was 35 miles away. I got in the habit of calling before driving if it was a special or unusual item. I found the best people to talk to were the service writers. They were usually happy to check in the store for me, and understood what the parts looked like.
