Yes they can be straightened. First you will need an arrow straightener, you can find them at Cabelas or BPS. Second, if there is a crease you will NOT be able to recover that arrow, it will be dangerous to shoot since the wall has been compromised.

Instructions should be included with the straightener.

You are most welcome. Another bit of advise, if you have to straighten more than once discard the arrows as the spine has been or will be compromised and could lead to injury.

Phasing out? I haven't heard anything. I would imagine that Gander Mountain is simply phasing out Aluminum due to lack of sales. Carbon is in line with aluminum at price point now so they tend to dominate sales.
