I was talking with a friend of mine who's wife is going to be the General Manager there and Frank said she told him that their goal is to open for Labor Day.  He said they're going to sell new and used guns, all grades of guns from the cheaper ones up to and including Brownings and Weatherbys, and lots of fishing stuff.  He said that it's going to be on the order of a Cabela's or Bass Pro, they have lots of mounted animals in there and they will change the back ground for each season.  I was on their website and they sell ice fishing gear so I'd say it's a pretty safe bet they'll stock the stuff in the store.  In the front when you come in they have a big mount with a grizzly bear standing over a moose and a few wolfs circling him.  Frank also said that it's a lot bigger and will have a lot more stuff than people realize.

How many stores do they have? I had no idea they actually had retail stores!  I always thought Field and Stream was just a brand of outdoor gear that Dick's SPorting Goods sold in their stores.

I hope you are right, Chris! We need a good store on the order of Cabelas or Bass Pro. Especially now that we are losing Gander Mtn!

For those wondering they are basically a dicks sporting goods. .  but better on the hunting fishing end not so much shoes clothes for jogging, running, weight lifting soccer like dicks does. .  there's one around here..  I never been I  it ..I shop on line they give same deals as dicks.. they  just have better hunting and fishing gear then they have in dicks and more of it..

They're ok......just ok.we have one nearby. Typical Dicks style store. 85% clothes from China, 5% sporting goods, 10% just fluff.

Generally overpriced and understocked if you're looking for fishing equipment.

Dick's and Field and Stream are in the same part, you can walk to and from the Dick's side to the Field and Stream side.  I highly doubt that Greed Hill will turn out to be the better of the two.

I haven't been to a F&S in a year and I found it had a good selection of hunting and fishing ,  , but I guess it is all in what your looking for , I found things I wanted and I didn't notice a big difference in price , all I can say is check it out and make up your own mind ,

I'll admit that if I have to go to a brick and mortar store for fly tying or fishing equipment, I'm generally dissatisfied. I prefer to buy from "mom and pop" type stores or online.

I'm not an impulse buyer. If I decide I want something, I research and get what I want. Second best and overpriced doesn't work for me.

Agree on the dissatisfaction. Problem around me is there are no mom & pop stores anymore. When you do go to the brick stores, like you mentioned, they are mostly all clothing. They will stock some of your basic equipment, but no specialty items. I hate to say it, but, I really do most items online, no choice.
