WOW…yup that is all I have to say is WOW!
So what could make me say this small little 3 letter word. It would have to be the NEW Cabela’s store in Winnipeg! Today, my wonderful hard working wife had the opportunity to see the flagship store and she took me along. It was like a trip to Disneyland.
Being an avid outdoorsman, I have been to many outdoor stores, and Cabala’s seems to set the standard. The new store in Winnipeg is no exception to that rule. To start, this store is 70,000 square feet of awesomeness. There are hundreds of museum quality mounts spread throughout the store that made this outdoor enthusiast drool. Everything from trophy deer to fish and even a couple polar bears with stories to go along with them.
This store has some other features that makes Cabela’s a unique experience. There is a fudge store that makes Cabela’s signature fudge that is simply to die for. The fudge is made by Cabala’s signature “fudgeologist” which ensures the fudge is up to Cabela’s quality.
It is not everyday that you get to play with a rare target shooting gun. But thanks to the Cabela’s Gun Library you can see rare collector guns and have the opportunity to purchase these dream guns. The Gun Library is beautifully made with lots of wood and these collector guns are housed behind glass. Sure to make any hunting enthusiast feel like star. (This gun is worth $14,000!)
Another feature that is sure to make all hunters happy is the indoor archery range. This feature is very cool and super helpful. As an avid archer you cannot buy a bow with out first trying it out. You can now do this. The helpful staff will also help you tune your existing bow and add parts to help you become a better archer.
And now for my secret confession that I love about all Cabela’s…the Bargain Cave. The place where frugal outdoorsmen find end of sale, damaged and old stock at a fraction of the shelf price. A must stop every time I hit a Cabela’s.
I have only scratched the surface of all the cool things about this store. There is everything from housewares to clothing and more under one roof. The professional helpful staff will be sure to assist you in whatever your hearts content. Please check this store out and enjoy this happiest place on earth. It opens in Winnipeg on May 9th, 2013 at 11am.
