lawdy Lawdy, Miz Clawdy! It was still Crowded, Tom. Aside from good prices on outboard motor oil and other boating assessories, I would have to say that NTB has a much better assortment and much of the same stuff at better prices. I would have thought the prices at the big box store would've been less, but it wasn't. Soft plastics and hard baits alike are less at NTB! Academy has some good stuff, especially in the hunting department and lots of team sports stuff, but the Lester family has got them on the fishing tackle stuff, especially the bass fishing and fly fishing stuff.
That's coming from the chief of penny pinchers, I'll gladly have you know!

Hopefully NTB has a big banner or sign out because I bet they could really get a crowd in their shop as well. If the Academy selection isn't that great, I bet NTB will really get a sales boost. I may try and ride out there this afternoon and check it out.

A couple of the kids that come into NTB a lot now work in the fishing department at Academy. When customers can't find what they are looking for they refer them to NTB! LOL. Christie said they saw some additional business the last couple of days and was pretty sure it was from the Academy opening.

Seriously, Academy stores across Texas to Alabama are poorly stocked. Hardly worth going there specifically for fishing tackle.
