As much fun as there will be walking around in that store, my first choice will always be the local tackle shop (The guy involved in the community, the guy who starts fishing clubs in schools, the guy that knows me by name................etc).  I am not at all apposed to Wholesale sports coming to langley but would hate to see the little guy get put out of business.  I myself will only make purchases at the big box store if I can't get it from the local guy.
Just my opinion

From what I hear the prices at Wholesale Sports in Canada are pretty comparible to other tackle stores, the only advantage they may have is selection. As long as the local tackle stores provide the great service and advise I don't think they have too much to worry about. I always support Sea-Run as they do the little extras and provide great service even though Walmart is less than 5 min away and a little cheaper. Just my 2 bits

If the manager can email me at info@fishingwithrod.com that would be great, so we can discuss what he needs to do to get the store up on the website.

Well for any store owner in the fishing tackle business, it never seems to stop. Survived one of the worst recessions, and knowing this summer that the HST will make things even tougher to make a living and now this. Wholesale Sports has done their homework, and realize that there is an opening in the lower mainland for a store such as theirs.  Couple that with the larger buying power the big box stores have, and it gets that much harder to make a living as an outdoor sports store. One positive for consumers is that you should see much improved customer service at all other existing stores, and very competitive pricing.

im have a bad feeling that we may see Galilee Fly & Tackle go under. I think they have been doing alright competing with A&N but to compete with 2 big stores within minutes of them !!

--in kamloops after initial run to wholesale sports the local shops that were good before wholesale sports are still around and doing well.
--In fact some extra busness as people from out of town stop in to or from their wholesale sports shoping.
--I havent' been in Galilee but if they have what their current customers want and work hard to bring quality products and services they could benefit from the extra traffic.

--I always support my local shop so just remember guys is it worth saving a few pennies on some common items if it means your local shop goes under.
