Sportsman’s Warehouse closes its Victorville location

   Sportsman’s Warehouse — a Bass Pro-type outdoors sporting store — has shuttered its doors in Victorville due to a battered economy, laying off 85 employees.

   The company has about 70 stores nationwide but has been closing other stores over the past year.

   The Victorville location had opened in June and closed on Oct. 15.

   “All they saw was slow sales getting slower,” said former employee, Mike Pacer, who was a sales clerk in the hunting department. “There was too much overhead. It was too expensive.”

  1. It is sad to see it go out of business! I love them, Bass Pro, and Cabelas. I think given the economy factor that it would have done fine if it wouldnt be for the failing economy, especially up here. I guess it would go into bad timing on the company’s planning part, although I am sure it is hard to plan with our government and world scrambling around to try to fix the ecomonmy. The first to go often are our hobbies as we loose money and concentrate on survival.

  2. I agree that it is very unfortunate to lose a great full line sporting goods store here in Victorville. Other than Big 5 which isn’t a true hunting and fishing store, our only choice is to drive 40 miles off the hill to Bass Pro. or Turners. Hopefully if/when the economy gets better, they will look at opening back up.

  3. Hello there! I could have sworn Ive been to this blog before but after going through many of
    the articles I realized its new to me.
    Nonetheless, Im certainly happy I found it and Ill
    be bookmarking it and checking back often!
