No need to shop Herbs anymore with the selection and quality of Bass Pro.

Herbs is nothing more than a cheap discount shop now and they have passed on offering quality goods...Herbs is the same as what we think of the dollar stores now. Herbs should have kept with the Army and Navy stuff at least and not discount crap.

You only then get the discount shoppers.

All the workers in Herbs creep me out. something is weird about the employees in Herbs. I never did figure it out but they make my skin crawl. they all greet you when you walk in but anyone who understands inventory control principles knows thats just to let the customer know that they know you are in the store and will be watching you so you don't shoplift. Creepy practice for sure. Like I said, Herbs has always creeped me out big time.

Herbs must have a policy that if a customer shoplifts the employee in that department gets fired. That's the only reason I could imagine the employees are so creepy toward customers.

Herbs is a store I enjoy from time to time. I don't want them to close shop now despite BPS. Besides, a sweet chick I like works there.

My brother Nate (say hi when you see him) works at Herbs in New Hartford and says that 2 things have begun to sink business, at least in Utica- Safe Act (sold lots of guns and ammo prior and these same buyers would buy lots of outdoor clothes, shoes, boots, etc as a customer base) and Bass Pro's opening. He says since Christmas this year it's mostly been a ghost town there andthey just can't compete with BPS. Water fountain chatter is they may close the New Hartford store nextyear.

Herb's not too worried about competition because Bass Pro don't carry sell a wide variety of sports clothing - North Face, Colubia, Syracuse themed items, etc.... Gander Mountain should be worried. Heck their parking lot is empty with the exception of cars belonging to their employees. Not to mention they're on the expensive side compared to Dick's (if you want to call it a sporting goods store)

I like Herb Phillipson's and Bass Pro Shop for the different variety of products offered.
