Sportsman’s Warehouse has a new CEO, and he was very frank about the company’s plans when it comes to firearm sales.
“We continue to support the legal sale of firearms under the Second Amendment,” Jon Barker said during a March 28 conference call to discuss the company’s quarterly earnings report.
Guns, ammunition, and other hunting and shooting items account for nearly half of the company’s overall sales. And those sales improved in a quarter when some of the company’s largest competitors scaled back gun and ammunition sales.
“That’s having an impact on our business,” Barker said of his competitors’ new policies. “We’re off to a strong start to the year … It’s bringing more people into the stores. We’re seeing good traffic.”
Barker said firearm sales were up 3.2 percent on a same-store basis from the same period a year ago “as we continue to gain market share in the states where we serve.”
Baker also noted the company’s online sales have also increased. – READ MORE[give_form id=”79809″] [contentcards url=”https://conservativetribune.com/outdoor-retailer-gets-huge-news/” target=”_blank”]
