Some old news: Sportsman's in West Bend is closing.
Here's what I'd like to know: why would Sportsman's even build a store in West Bend knowing that a massive Cabela's, with full county financial assistance, was going in a few miles down the road?
Anyway, here's the story:
Sportsman's Warehouse Inc. will close its West Bend store by late February. The management of the store at 840 W. Paradise Drive announced the closing to employees on Thursday, according to a closing notice filed with the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development. All 63 employees will be laid off starting on Feb. 27 with the rest shortly after that, CEO Stuart Utgaard said in the letter to the state Department of Workforce Development.And so it goes.
