Call corporate. Call the store manager. I'll bet you get some. At the sale price.
I have been in retail for more than 25 years and have witnessed everything I mean everything you can imagine. My expectations as a manager for at least 20 of those years are extremely high but I can say beyond a reasonable doubt the amount of bad customer service is far less than unruly customers. I mean 90%- 10% very lopsided! I'm guessing @Old Dog knows what I'm talking bout.And this is precisely why we get stuck with sh1tty customer service at the retail level. People are afraid to seek out management to make a stink. Managers don't have to deal with customers, don't have to hold their employees accountable and the cycle perpetuates.
I think one of my local Home Depot uses facial recognition to identify me when I walk through the doors with immediate notification to all its management staff. They do not want to see me coming in these days. They should be afraid of the customer, we should not allow the kind of crap the OP describes to go on. Take your cell out, film these guys doing this crap, put them on the spot, and the upload it to Tik-Tok, FB or Twitter, whatever. At this point, only public shaming is gonna work to get retailers in line.
What a difference a few years makes, eh?$7 a box for S&B ammo isn't a great deal anyway. Most of the employees at SW are part timers. Most work 3 jobs. Shop Bi-Mart or Northwest Armory for decent service. Just a few years back NWA was selling CCI Brass 9mm for $169........per 1000 rds.
That's what you get dealing with Cabela's (now), since SW was bought out I have stopped going there. It's too bad, they occasionally had some good deals and carried some hard to find items... not any more. Oh, and customer assistance sucks now. My $.02So I recently purchased from sportsman which is something I told myself I would never do again! Well long story short they gave me no communication besides an email but what really pissed me off was the lie I was told! So I get to sportsman’s start filling out the 4473 form and I start talking with the employees one of the employees says there was a glitch in the system and sellers and ballet 9mm was going for $7 out the door. I see the employee take every box and stash it for themselves. He even went as far as to say another employee took the last shipment and basically hoarded it for himself. So I see him doing the exact same thing and I ask the employees who is dealing with my paperwork can I buy a few boxes. They start coming up with all kinds of BS the guy is like I’m not sure they put more on the shelves I’m like I’m talking about the one I just saw you guys try to hide... I asked did somebody order it or can I buy it? He didn’t say they were an order that was being pulled therefore I should be able to buy it! I think it is ridiculous and completely unfair to hoard ammo just for yourself and it was during your shift you can’t do that in any retail business I have worked in I thought it was complete BS. The guy tries to make me feel better by saying well they aren’t much cheaper than any other brand! I just find it ridiculous that they hoard ammo when there is a good deal going on. That really unfair in my opinion. I could understand before your shift but not right in front of my when it’s something I want and you don’t own it. Am I in the wrong from thinking this was a messed up situation?
Dude, you're a little late here... the sale was cancelled; Sportsman's Warehouse was NOT bought out by Cabela's/Bass Pro Shops. My local SW still has very large signs at the front door to that effect. And as far as painting with the broad brush, it's all situational and totally varies from store to store -- my local SW has pretty doggone good customer service for a "big box" retailer.That's what you get dealing with Cabela's (now), since SW was bought out I have stopped going there.
