Originally founded by Richard N. Cabela in the early 1960’s, Cabela’s is one of the country’s largest retailers of outdoor recreation merchandise. The business started in 1961 when Cabela began advertising and selling fishing flies in various newspapers and magazines. Finding success, he and his wife eventually moved the company to Sidney, Nebraska in 1963, where they were joined by his brother, Jim. Since their humble beginnings, Cabela’s has become a major public corporationーgrossing approximately $3 billion in annual sales. As of 2016, the company operates over eighty stores across the United States as well as in Canada; the large indoor habitat in their Hamburg, Pennsylvania location regularly attracts millions of visitors every year. A popular sporting goods reseller, Cabela’s sells everything from hunting to fishing gear. Known for their direct marketing operations, the company’s mail-order catalogues are shipped to 120 countries across the world.
Cabela’s all around the country (and then some, like Canada!) will open at 5 AM on the morning of Friday the 25th, also known as Black Friday 2017. Fortunately, Cabela’s has quite a bit on sale this year and plenty of supply – unlike other stores, they aren’t doing any doorbusters on limited quantity items. Rather, you can expect a wide variety of items on sale, including firearms (namely firearms, actually), firearm accessories, a whole lot of outdoors equipment and accessories, and even some clothing in there. This is the perfect time to stock up for hunting season!
