With Bass Pro buying Ranger ,Triton,Stratos and Cabelas.
Will this be a good thing if it is all under one umbrella ?

Competition is usually a good thing for consumers. Soooo no.

When they say competition is usually a good thing, it normally leads to innovation and better pricing. On one hand, combining all of those stellar boat makers could do away with innovation and cause prices to remain high or even to increase. Another way of thinking is that maybe by bringing all of these innovators together and allowing them to work together could push the next innovations just that much further. I can't see it working that way though because that would cost BassPro a whole lot more money.

I think it will just make other brands harder to find, at least if you live near a BPS. There are not as many businesses competing near mega stores it seems. The BPS brand is starting to squeeze out the availability and selection of other brands in store. I don't buy from Bass Pro much so really it wont have any affect on me. I like buying from TackleWarehouse because I know what I want and they have any brand I want. Not to mention a bigger selection. Now if they buy TackleWarehouse I will sob like a baby.

BPS bought Ranger - changes will happen. Good changes or bad changes I do not know but there is information out there that two career Ranger managers left this week. Very common with M&A transactions and different business owners.

Bass Pro is more of destination than a tackle store these days.

I shop there occasionally because of convenience, but I buy most of my stuff elsewhere..
