Cabela's closing the bargain caves

Recommended Posts

Went into the Rogers Cablea's today and, as always, wandered into the Bargain Cave. They only had about 1/2 their normal amount of stuff in there, and all the scopes, GPS's, bincos, etc were removed. Pretty much everything left was marked at 50% off. We asked what what was going on, and an employee told us that Bass Pro has decided they are doing away with Bargain Caves. Kind of disappointing, we've scored a lot of great deals in there over the years, and kind of enjoyed the "treasure hunt". It will mean less trips into their store for us, that's for sure.

One thing I liked about Cabelas.  It was different.

 

All that is slowly changing now.  And not necessarily for the better.  Some will rave about it, some will hate it, some will not care one way or the other.  I would like to see it stay how it was.

The idea of all the Cabela's returns and clearance left overs in one place really makes me want to make more trips to Springfield. I never found anything I needed except for line a few times at Cabela's bargain cave in Rogers, but I always find a lot of bargains at the Bass Pro Outlet.

I have noticed that Cabela's prices have come more in line with Bass Pro's prices also, Cannot argue with lower prices.

Just another example of good ol Johnny furthering the sport of fishing. The man just nearly drowns in his own good will.

We were at the BP outlet in Springfield yesterday too. Yeah, busy day. I didn't see anything from Cablea's, but wasn't really looking either. That place is going to have get a LOT bigger if it's taking all the stuff that used to go to all the Cabela's bargain caves!

Good point on the online bargain caves, Jeff. I wonder if that will go away too, or maybe it will become the place where all of those things go?

Agreed. You can for sure tell they are working toward doing things differently. I hope they don't screw it up too much, but closing the bargain caves sure makes me think they're on the wrong path.
