I am so disappointed in Wholesale. Twice I have gone in a had some of he rudest customer expirence. The first time the guy wouldn't even look up a price on their computer after one of his co-workers told him how. Instead he just looked at me and gave me what he thought the price was. The second time I was unlucky enough to have the same guy tell me it was too bad for me that their stock was low and I should have come in the week before. Both times I went to army and navy in Langley after walking out of the store and was treated how a customer should be treated. In the last week i have spent close to $700 at army and navy that wholesale could have had if their employees werent so rude and seemed to care.  I don't think I'll ever shop at wholesale again.

So let me get this straight, you have been in there 2 times, and were helped by the same guy both times and were dissapointed in the customer service and you blame the whole store? try going to another sales person. One bad apple doesn't mean the whole tree is rotton.

Im not trying to defend the store and maybe the whole store is bad, i don't know. But common sense dictates that you might want to try another sales person. Glad to hear you were satisfied with A&N, that langley store is a nice store.

I know what your saying, but some buddies of mine have had the similar issues as well.  I have also been in more then twice, i have been in several times, the first time i was treated well by whom i believe is the department manager, but those are the two recent trips where i was looking at making major purchases.  I have also worked in retail and customer service for close to 10 years, so i myself hold customer service at a high level, i will spend my money where i am treated the best, and when someone tells you to go to another store to shop or cant take the time to look up prices for customers it reflects badly on the department. 

A&N have gone above and beyond when i have gone in looking for help and will have my business from now on:)

Maple Ridge wont get a Bass Pro Sop. The population is too small here and City Council does not like big box stores.

  I went and had a look at Wholesale sports when the wife was in chapters and there was a customer looking to buy some fly gear and the sales guy even recommended he go to Army and Navy even though they had the exact samething. I thought it was a little strange.

I think their staff is hit and miss.
I was in there looking for a rod holder for my float tube. After not finding the right one, I asked for some help. First they took me to the rod cases, then to the boat accessories, then when I pointed out the isle of rod holders they had they said if I didn't already see it they probably didn't have it.
I went home, looked it up in their online catalog, printed it out, went back in (a few days later) and they found it no problem.

I would have just bought it at army and navy but they were sold out.

You get what you pay for. If you want to spend an hour asking advice from a sales guy who knows what he is taking about then you should expect to pay more for it. Equally, if you have spent a lot of time researching and know exactly what you want to buy and dont need any advice then why pay more?

There will never be one of these stores in Maple Ridge.
Like Bobo says,our council would rather see the big stores go elsewhere.
But,if you ever need candles,sex toys or a new crack pipe,Maple Ridge is shopping heaven. ::)

I'll lay odds that Abby or even Pitt Meadows gets it if they were to build another.  Like BB and FL stated... the council here in Maple Ridge is not big box friendly.  There's no real space readily available and it would take up too much of the precious 'hay-making' farmland.  Unless they wanted to build it on a mountain side - cut down all them trees - then its ok.  Oh wait - thats set aside for residential.

Forgive me for ranting !
