Looks like the city of Anniston is looking for their sales tax. Sounds like the city is taking a position that if you make a purchase in the store you have taken title to the items in the store and therefore you owe the full 10% tax. If you look at the order form it says Alabama sales tax rate is 4% but the Anniston sales tax rate is 10%.

So is the CMP not shipping alll in-store purchases or just those to Alabama residents?

Mr. Quicksilver,
Yes, Thursday was no shipping at all. Hopefully today will be different.

Someone that goes to SS today should give us a report.

With the relocation, is the store still close to wherever mail orders are being shipped from? Could that be part of it?

Gentlemen,
Only the messenger here, and info is limited but please know that there is indeed no shipping offered for rifles purchased in-store at this time. The ONLY exception they are working is for folks who fly in, and you will need to show proof.
Otherwise, for rifles purchased in-store (South and North), you will have to take them with you, pay the listed price and applicable sales tax (10% for South Store, 7% for North Store).
It partially involves a sales tax issue as well as working out shipping procedures (the move of the south store is big in itself, but there are other changes/moves/updates going on as well).

They expect to get this resolved one way or another next week.

Biggest takeaway is hold your water and not inundate customer service with phone calls!
There is nothing they can do, and no further info they have.

I will try my best to post updated info as it becomes available.

Regards,
Rob

Yikes, When I bought a rifle during the last week at the old store, shipping the rifle out of state without any add-ons was no problem. Wonder why the policy change to no shipping from store?

I guess if you could not take it with you, you would have to find a FED EX/KINKOS or PackNShip store in Anniston/Oxford to turn it over to and pay the retail price to have them ship it for you, (as long as they would accept a firearm). Even then you may have to line up a BATF licensed Dealer near you to accept it and you would incur the dealers fee to transfer the weapon.

EDITED: NEVERMIND - Big Red just answered.

Default Maybe it is time to close both stores.

With what's going on, sounds like closing the stores might be the best option and going to mail order only. This would put all the people in the USA who want to purchase items from the CMP on equal ground.

Maybe the old DCM policies were not that all that bad.

Does the policy apply at the North Store as well?
