    Default Lebaron Ottawa mass restructuring (i.e.closing)

    Just got back from Lebaron in Ottawa. As usual they don't have what I want. The staff told one of the customer at the cash that they will no longer accept returns next week because they are going through a mass restructuring. Another source told me they are closing.

    With Cabelas opening today in Ottawa, the competition will be too tough.

    Lebarons and poor service, and no stock has to eventually kill them off.
    Iím suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.

    Shopped there a few times, in Montreal on St. laurent too, service was poor to bad, always gave me a hard time on returns, or no service. With sail and cabelas now here, maybe their restructuring is a for sale sign, they will surely loose business. With more outdoors stores we'll most likely get some good deals.

    I have it on good authority that all LeBarons stores will be closing. The substantial sales will begin this Monday. Happy shopping.

    Worst website I've ever seen I'm sure contributed to their lack of online sales which you need in this day and age. Now with the new Cabelas in town you can order anything off the .ca (not .com) site and it will be delivered to the store for pick up for free.

    I heard the same thing is happening at all the stores so my bet is that they're going titsup.

    The website is brutal in today's web world. Here's hoping that is what is being restructured.

    I have been satisfied with the physical stores in Markham and Mississauga (the only ones I've been to). However I've never needed service or advice and only go a couple of times a year max.

    One less competitor doesn't make things better for the consumer.

    Back in the 90's when they were pretty much the only folks in town, I spent a lot of money there. Yes they were brutal to their customers. As soon as other options became available to me I drove right pass LeBarons.

    I hate Lebarons too. Actually used to get flammed on here pretty good for calling them down. Anyhoo we won't go there. I'll say this. Watch a one card monopoly. I already see it in Cabelas. The little "we own you now" mentality. ie tell all your existing customers to come for "VIP" treatment, where you get in a day early. Guys. That's their way of getting the choir in and out and rid of. Then the deals go to the general crowd we still have to convert. Little stunts like that play out like the GOD complex panasonc electronics got. How they doing now?They could have swallowed cabelas. So it can happen with them too if they feel too much notion to play games

    Lebarons had countless chances to address their issues. I know that more than a dozen retail experts in the outdoors and hunting industries tried to reach out to them to offer aid over the last 15 years.

    They ignored every offer of help, just like they ignored all warning signs from their customer base.

    I highly doubt they're restructuring. If they are, it will be to compete in a non-hunting/fishing market.

    They won't be missed.

    Long live the other smaller stores who truly do their best to put the customer first.
