Green Top Reduced Items

Recommended Posts

Green Top in Richmond has put many items on sale.

Not everything, but a decent selection.

They are also stocking their new inventory.

They are putting items that are on sale along the back wall in the hunting part of the store so be sure to check it out.  It is to the right of the bow and arrow area.

Their sales starts on January 24.

The Shimano guys will be there on January 25 and 26.

There are some good coupons for money and products from Berkley so pick up some and get the goodies.

I think I saw the Bait Monkey in the parking lot.

Cool, thanks for the heads up Sam.  I'll be there next Friday (1/25) with Rob (flippin4it) as part of our Fishing Expo road-trip.  Where are these coupons that you speak of?

Oh yeh, I was just up there last night to get some jigheads for tying and I stocked up on War Eagle jigs and spinnerbaits.

Now I just gotta find some more money to spend.  ;)

Drums,

The coupons are on small advertising posters sticking out from the shelving.  You can't miss them.  They are by the Berkley products, espically the line.

War Eagles and Rico's are not on sale.  I asked.

And yes, the guys were supposed to start putting up a 30 foot tent for the Shimano guys.  I sincerely hope they show up as I have some questions for them.

As for BP48 needing more money....get a job!!!!! ;D

Are the shimano people just there to talk to or are they going to be putting on presentations.  It would be nice if they would put their products on sale.

Gander Mountain just opened this summer at the I-95 exit at Elmont on the way to Green Top.

Stop in and see what they have, too.

The Bass Pro Shop has broken ground north of Green Top and Gander Mountain at Lewistown Road off I-95.  Look for the sign.

Can't wait!!!!

Last year I noticed that Greentops got ran sacked during Bassarama.  I stopped by and looked at the sale items.  They have a bunch of Berkley Frenzy crankbaits.  It looks like they didn't sell that many last year because they have a bunch on clearance.

I will stop by the Richmond Fishing Expo on Sunday.

WOW, really?  I had no idea that was coming.  So in the not too distant future...we're gonna have Greentop, Gander Mtn, and BPS all within a few miles of each other.  Incredible!

That's amazing...I can't wait!  

I also hope the big guys don't put Green top out of business though =/ they seem like more of a smaller mom/pop store ( I might be totally wrong )

Hey Simon,

The larger box stores will bring business to Green Top as Green Top has some better selections of Zoom products and other items that the big boxes do not carry.

Plus the fact that the guys at Green Top are now friendly and helpful.

The Shimano guys will be there on Friday and Saturday.

I went by the store today and got some stuff; I was hopeful that the War Eagles and RICOs and Lucky Crafts and Bandit Cranks would be on sale but no luck.

Did get some plastics I was looking for.  Picked up 6 bags which should last through the summer.

See you at the Expo.  I will be wearing my LSU sweatshirt.

Heya Sam,

Gotta love those greentop guys, so helpful.  As for the sale I was there a few days ago and saw some LC pointers and I think one type of LC crank there for 8.99, they were kinda hidden on the middle top of the back wall section.  I hope they aren't sold out cause I was planning to head back there (without the girlfriend  ;D ) and pick up a few things.

There is some relationship between Green Top and the old Thalhimers department store chain.  The owner of Green Top had his hands heavily in Thalhimers, possibly being an owner.  

I was told this story by Green Top manager, but I can't remember how it went.  

I do know that Green Tops owns the building they are in and may be building a new store in another location nearby.

Nice, I'm heading down to Greentop and the Expo tomorrow (Fri.) morning with Flippin4it.  I actually took a personal day off from work for this.  I have nice chunk of cash saved up for this, which will soon be in the monkey's hands.  It feels like Christmas Eve again!   ;D

Gander Mountain just opened this summer at the I-95 exit at Elmont on the way to Green Top.

I would not bother with this Gander.  I might be spoiled, but it is nowhere near as good as the Winchester VA Store.  Not enough freshwater baits, and what they have is pretty much what any other Retail sporting goods store would.  Which is understandable with all the brackish inshore waters to the immediate east and south of Richmond.  

Just go straight to Green Top.

I went into gander mtn once and wasn't too impressed.  Green Top is much better in my opinion.  I don't feel as if there is any real price difference between their fishing tackle and stores like Bass Pro and Gander Mtn.  Plus their selection and service is much better.

Stocked up on minus 1's at Gander Mountian, 1.99 a piece. Bought a couple of Mann's tail draggers at 1.99 also. They also carry a nice selection of rods and keep them together by action, thus compairing rods of same length and action is way easier. My buddy and I were laughing about the Gander Mountian rods, Giving the Shimano Compre a run for the money at half the price. At Greentop, the baitmonkey went deep. I bought Kanami Flash in my favorite color (blk/blue fleck) bought 8 packs @1.99 a pack. Also hooked up on a great Wacky rigging bait made buy JDC Baits called the Bass Bone, I bought 23 packs at .99 cents a shot. I bought terminal tackle, finnesse worms and cranks to the tune of $250.00 in Greentop alone. Bought a E21 Carrot Stix at the show too at a vastly reduced price, that sucker is light! My total spent will never be printed..........LOL, THAT WOULD BE AN ADMISSION OF GUILT.

did you guys check out those Grandt rods at the show? Man they are nice looking. The guy at the booth said they have higher modulus graphite than any other rods on the market. He also said they sell the rods at the show at a 40% discount.
