    Bargin Cave

    Anyone else bummed they closed down the Cabela's Bargin Cave? That was all what made Cabela's worth visiting for me.

    Nope. When I asked they said all the stuff that was there is mixed in out in the store now.

    IMHO, the La Vista store will be closed within 1-2 years, especially with the close proximity of a BPS in Councl Bluffs. And I would likely bet that going forward any stores that are close to other Bass Pro Shops will do the same. The only thing that would keep a Cabela's store open, would be if it was far enough away from a Bass Pro Shops store, and then would be completely rebranded as such.
    I agree with you 100%

    I have been going to the Kearney one here and their lately when I travel to St. Paul. I haven't noticed one, but I also not a fan of the Kearney one anyway. No used gun section sucks.

    Hopefully they will find more room for camo/hunting clothing. I was in the Sidney store in mid Sept. NO upland hunting clothing on display anywhere in the store. Then I looked for camo gloves. I found 2 pair on display. The 'hole' %&$# store...only 2 pair of camo gloves on the sales floor and both of them were high priced Sitka gloves. Cabela's used to be a good store. I worked there for over 8 years way back in the 90's. This past summer while on vacation we stopped at both the Mitchell and Owatonna stores. BIG disappointment at each. Knee high weeds growing around the bronze statues outside. The Owatonna store had many large areas on the floor, both the main floor and upstairs, that were void of merchandise and display racks. Just some huge open areas. And the Owatonna store had peg after peg that were empty, especially in the fishing dept. We did talk to some good employees in the Mitchell store, while the Owatonna employees ALL turned and walked away from us. What a way to ruin what used to be a thriving business.

    What is back in the "bargain cave" at the La Vista one now?

    The one in LaVista is gone - I got a lot of bargains from that store. I still visit the store though for looking at the wall trophies and other stuff.

    The Bargain Cave is no more in Sidney. It's now a continuation of the hunting/archery section.

    I used to work for Cabelas, and I now shop at Scheels for the excellent customer service.

    LaVista Cabelas no longer has it’s bargain cave, it’s a marine section now. Camo is also all Sitka and other overpriced clothing with a barely mediocre selection. Most of the floor space the comprised camping, cooking and hunting clothes is now basically overpriced casual wear. I will still check there for for certain items but they are pretty much dead to me as well.

    IMO, the "Bargain Cave" was mostly items which were damaged in a way, sat around a long time, or were returned items not stocked in the stores. Usually found a bit of this and that, but was kinda like a garage sale in that you might just see junk, but you might find something you actually needed. A long time ago, it was a good concept, but it evolved into something less. Honestly, what did people think would happen to Cabela's when they were bought out? Did you think that they were going to not skip a beat and continue on as it was since they started? Bass Pro was not going to support multiple independent lines of products,why would they? I guess time will tell how this all shapes out as we are only seeing the initial changes.
