A little over a year ago I was quite excited to learn that there had been talk of a Cabela’s store coming to the Ottawa area. Not having a large selection of hunting and fishing stores, products and prices in the area becomes too familiar. The bigger stores such as Bass Pro and Cabela’s are a good distance away and that road trip wasn’t made very often despite the excitement upon finally walking in the front doors.
Through social media, I learned today of the announcement from Cabela’s of the store opening in Ottawa this fall. The date is set for September 22nd and I couldn’t be more excited. I will definitely be making some time to visit the store on its opening weekend as well I am sure I will be frequenting the store quite often. This large store with so much to offer is very close to home. The selection and competitive pricing will make it an easy one stop shop for any type of hunting and fishing needs. Although I do fully promote shopping local hunting and fishing stores, it becomes difficult for all needs to be met with such an abundance of products in the industry. Being able to find this selection of products close to home will definitely make for good business.
Cabela’s timing was also well planned as the waterfowlers will be looking to upgrade their gear as the early season will be underway just prior to the grand opening. As well, deer season will be right around the corner so hunters of all types will be looking forward to this new establishment.
