Default Boycott west marine until they bring back the pricematch!

As a life long boater in South Florida I used to shop at West Marine pretty often only because of their price match policy. Their regular pricing is a major ripoff and completely unacceptable! They sell things for 3 times the price of the rest of the world. I am very familiar with WM and their business model since my father has been doing business with them since before I was born.

They made some changes a while back and hired a new CEO, Matthew Hyde. He has implemented a no internet price matching rule so they can be MORE profitable. This new rule will cost them sales beginning with my sales since I will no longer purchase anything from WM.

Please join me in this Boycott to show WM that the consumer dictates the boating market.

Below is a link to another thread about this WM price matching policy.

Keep the lines tight and we will conquer!
