if it is anything like the one that is in orem, they kind of suck. they have stuff, but not much. they are a carry a little of every sporting activity type store. but it that is all you have close by then they will have to do. right.
My experience with the Ogden store is that they do carry a lot of stuff, just not the kind of stuff I go for. A little hunting and fishing stuff, but not much. They are a last resort store for me. They also hire inexperienced people to run the Hunting and Fishing dept. Not too smart on their part if you ask me.
At least you still have Al's and CalRanch. Don't you have a Sports Authority too? It's too bad you lost the Trading Post...they had it or could get anything you needed.
Im not much of a fan for Al's. I go there, but in the past they havent been very helpful. They dont have crap for fishing selection. Cal-ranch is ok but I guess Big 5 will be just another sports authority type store (i dont like them much either) I wish they would build a sportsmans warehouse or gander mountain here. I guess Ill keep dreamin. At least theres a couple of good fly fishing shops here.
I guess the only reason Ill be going to big 5 is because it will only be 1 mile from my house.
Big 5 to me, is about the same as the sporting goods section at Walmart. Same stuff. Only Walmart costs less. The only thing I'll get at Big 5 - sometimes they have some decent sales on some standard guns/rifles - like the 80 as mentioned. But I wouldn't be doing cartwheels over it. You'll find very little there, that you won't find at Walmart.
