Family Company:

Do you believe Johnny Morris cares for his employees (at both Bass Pro and Cabela’s) the way D–k and Mary did? Why or why not? After all, the discount is better now and my GM acts like we are way better off after the merger. I personally feel... —  read more

New President Gone

Interesting this guy lasted only 5 months. My guess is he got on board and saw what a FUBAR organization BPS is. Johnny needs to let this new blood do their jobs as they were hired to do. I am sure Jim H still had his hand in the daily... —  read more

Exit letter to my GM (2/4)

Sidney DC unimportant

Someone keeps posting how the work at the Sidney DC was vital to the success of the company. So if it was so vital why did they just shutter the ENTIRE operation and things are humming along?
