Finally!! It has been two days and I have spent 300 in that store. No more going to Bass Pro or Dicks, which dicks never had anything fishing related i liked anyway. Although they did not have the "NED Rig" in there and a few other off the wall items that I normally get at other Academys. They did write down the items that I was looking for. They said they are trying to get a "local feel" of what people want and will fill the orders.

It was nice to see a store with product in it. Hopefully it stays that way.

I went to an Academy in Alabama while I was there.. totally different than here.
They actually had a huge selection of product and employees that knew what they had and where it was. It did not suck.

When I lived in Fate I always wondered why there was not an Academy in Rockwall. Always like stopping by an Academy. Great stores.

^ I agree! For those of you guys that says the selection sucks and they are out of everything what are you looking for specifically? I've always found what I need. The employees aren't much help but I don't need them to be, that's what TFF is for

The one in Greenville has a nice fishing section. The one in Rockwall not so much.

They are almost identical, the guy who set up the one in Greenville also set up the one in Rockwall. Have you even been there yet Bennie? LOL

Ryan Niemeyer is one of the lead guys there and I guarantee as long as he is there the fishing section will not suck.

Like stated above he wants feed back to make sure to stock the stuff people in this area will buy.

I've grown to hate Academy. The one I go to had empty pegs where they don't keep things stocked, you can't get the employees working to get off their stools. I asked one that want busy to give me a price check and he wanted me to walk to a different part of the store to use the reader. I had to explain that the reader want working before he'd pull his reader from the register and tell me and Everytime I go to check out there's a long line and one register open. The process are a little better than Bass pro but if rather drive to BPS because I know they will have what I want and I won't spend 30 minutes in line to pay. All of this goes back to a lazy bad manager that doesn't try.

Camping World Holdings ( ticker symbol CWH ) bought out bankrupt Gander Mountain but haven't made public their intentions as far as how it would be operated or even if it will continue selling similar merchandise. The one in Mesquite was less than a block away from Academy and just couldn't compete. I would think the new Academy in Rockwall would take business away from BPS unless BPS gets competitive with their pricing.

academy does have low senko prices compared to BPS or cabelas, that's the good thing about going there the prices seem fair.
