I used to shop regularly at Cabelas. Now that Bass pro has them I don't. Same thing is probably going to happen to sportsman's warehouse as I hear Bass pro has bought them. Bunch of that know nothing about hunting and fishing calling the shots there. Wish we had a Scheels close by.
To be fair, that started when the kids took over. I have several family members who worked for Cabelas in Sidney, one of whom made the move to Minnesota. She was there a long time and she has nothing good to say about the second generation.Its Bass Pro Shops, not Cabelas end of story.
Anyone that was anyone at Cabelas internally is long gone now and that poor little town in NE is a ghostown
FWIW, At Scheels we not only have Kenetrek, Crispi, Asolo, Lowa, Hanwag, Vasque, Salomon, Zamberlan, La Sportiva, and White's......as of next year we will have Meindl as well!!!!To be fair, that started when the kids took over. I have several family members who worked for Cabelas in Sidney, one of whom made the move to Minnesota. She was there a long time and she has nothing good to say about the second generation.
But yes, Cabelas, Bass Pro etc are all a joke to me now. I just spent all day driving around OKC yesterday trying to find a good pair of hunting boots. You won't find a single pair of schnees, kennetrex, meindl, any of that in this town. But they're sure packed to the gills with other useless yuppie crap. Worlds Foremost Outfitters, yeah, no
t no more.
unfortunately they 100% have gone down hill.Is it just me or has Cabelas really gone hill in recent in years of quality name brands and competitive pricing?
Our Sportsman’s up in Fairbanks is really bad too.We still have Bob Wards over here thankfully, Scheels in billings is nice but a little far to go regularly. Sportsman's doesn't even have a bottle of wind checker (ARE YOU F'ING KIDDING ME). Guess i'm going to albertsons to get some talcum powder. Makes you wonder if the new owners are driving it down the shitter on purpose? Or are they just that naive.
