    Gonna miss Sacha in the gunroom at the Mississauga store as she really knows her stuff and was quite friendly. Paul who has been there as long as I remember was always a friendly guy as well but ya, they had some real dinks work in the gunroom over the years.

    Any one know what % the firearms are discounted at ??

    I actually walked in to the Ottawa store to see how good/bad the savings were.

    Best service I have ever experienced at Le Baron, they had the same amount of inventory too, it seems as though closing made them better to the customers.

    Maybe I am bitter but there is a reason they are going out of business and it is not just Cabelas.

    Default Firearms are priced at 20% off the last catalogue price

    Per a previous posting, I was down at the Markham store this past Monday - not to buy but to wish some of the guys I dealt with in the gun room "good luck/best wishes".

    I did end up buying a Stainless Ruger 10/22 though - Dave in the gun room priced it out at last catalogue price less 20% plus the HST on the discounted amount.

    He indicated it was likely that the store wide discounting would go on, at a slightly increased discount every week or two, until the shelves were bare. But then said to a vendor who came in to talk to him that he'd sold more guns in one morning the day I was there than on their best weekend ever. So that stock may not last long.

    O.N.G.

    I would assume that was because you were dealing with the liquidators..not the original staff

    One original was there, he did not speak to the customers.

    There were a few staff from before the liquidation but they were not the main people and not anyone I had issues with.

    I'm sorry to see any gun store close however I never bothered to use them due to the constant complaints I heard about their customer service. Shame they coudn't change and become competitive.

    Maybe now customers can take advantage of the liquidation deals without the expectation of any future customer service.

    Dropped in and was tempted to buy Tenzing backpack however doing some quick googling on my phone found it was priced 10% higher than the competitive price, so with the 20% I would get only get 10% off a demo model with possible parts missing = no sale. Walked out of the store with nothing.

    Similarly, I found most items 10% to 20% higher than everywhere else so people saying they are breaking even with the 20% off makes sense. Except they are final sales and if you find a piece missing, you are out of luck.

    10% higher makes sense as in recent years they hiked everything that they did not mark "special" (on which the 10% member discount would not apply) 10% higher to make up for the 10% discount people got using the Member card. Funny it seemed like half the inventory was marked "special" so that 10% discount would not apply. Scam!

    In the early days the 10% discount really meant something - in recent years people needed it to break even. People caught on to this however and I guess this is one of the reasons people like me went elsewhere.

    Also they converted a lot of their sales floor to Canada Goose merchandise, moving away from their traditional hunting and fishing goods, attracting a few new "hip" customers but losing loyal hunting and fishing customers as a result.

    Sad to see them go but RIP Le Baron.
