A few weeks ago, I purchased jib sheets from West Marine after they agreed to match the price offered by Defender Marine. Today, I tried to buy varnish and bottom paint using the West Marine Price Match. Again, I wanted to match the Defender Marine Price which was about $40.00 less! A West Marine online agent told me that West Marine was only accepting Amazon price matches. What?!! I was also told that Defender Marine had to be within 50 miles of the West Marine store. By the way, the Old Saybrook, Ct.West Marine store is 20 miles from the Defender Marine Store. I have emailed West Marine for clarification. No answer. West Marine prices are too high. I was really happy to see the Price Match offer but it seems to now have “catches”

My 93 year old Mom, my down syndrome cousin and I finally made it through the backwards doors. I tried to order the buffet and the manager said that we were to late to get the buffet!!! My clock said 2:00 and her clock said 2:02. The Buffet was still fully stocked and there was at least 5 pizzas on the buffet. This was very unkind not to allow us to eat your very long awaited, excellent, food. The manager does not have any sympathy for anyone else, nor does she have any people skills!!!
