Thread regarding Bass Pro Shops layoffs

It is clear, all corporate wants are credit card sign ups

The way they hammer the credit card as a major part of their business model profit is unsettling. My GM is under orders to get credit cards numbers up. I don't think they even concern themselves about lost sales. I mean, we are not setting up a loyal customer base who will use club points if we can not offer anything to buy. So, why should we even care about getting our merchandise stocked. The only thing being pushed is getting card sign ups.

We follow the business model of the failed Cabela's.
Hmmm.

Race to zero with their latest scam contest between stores. If our store doesn't win, what happens? Set the store total number goal and leave it at that. Free market competition between other companies, not employees at each store, good grief

Ummmm..ALL retailers want new credit apps. He-l some have a goal per hour or per transaction. Why has this surprised you?

Bass Pro owns Cabela's. Capital One owns Bass Pro.

Sears all over again. Sears was relentless over credit card signups and look how that turned out.
