Re: West Marine no longer matching prices...
The Defender warehouse sale is an incredible event. The number of extra staff, manufacturer's reps, added displays and all the customers that they pack in there has to be seen to be believed. There's no way I could imagine that they are handling mail orders on their usual schedule.
TakeFive has the right idea: call to verify when they will ship sale items.
For those who are lamenting the 50 mile policy of WM, you could always move to the greater New London area, where the real estate prices are still depressed, but the sailing venue is superb.
BTW, I understand that only the Mystic and Old Saybrook WM stores are price-matching Defender during their warehouse sale, even though there a couple of other WM stores within 50 miles.
It may just be worth a drive down there. I have never been to the store. They DO post notices about delays in shipping during the March sale.
