Home Depot now in Powersports Business killing mom and pop stores

Home Depot now in Powersports Business killing mom and pop stores!

We'll time to get signed up. My local Home Depot started selling UTVs. Wouldn't surprise me if they start doing ATVs next. Chinese UTVs.

Meanwhile the mall is selling Artic Cat ATVs and UTVs ( made by Kymco mostly ) at Outdoorsman World.

Sears is selling Baja Motorsports ( you know really quality service and parts at Sears for Scooters right? )

Pep Boys like always continues to flood the USA with more Hammherhad, Baja, Ebike, Razor and other models ( always the least expensive model in anyone's lineup )

How can this help the small retailer except for making them a service center that get's paid less and less each year. Obviously, we need these service agreements to stay in business, but how do you keep the legitimate brands alive while still benefiting from all the service on the big box retailers. It's a question only the dealers can answer. I know you can't stop this, its just a sad state of events.

What's next Supermarkets?
