Retail stores

Cabela's has a distinctive look to their retail operations, a look which turns them into tourist attractions as well as retail stores. The stores are more like cavernous showrooms, bringing the outdoors inside. They feature museum-quality displays of taxidermied wildlife, large aquariums, indoor mountains, and archery ranges. The success of the format is illustrated by the company's Kansas City, Kansas store, over 180,000 square feet, which attracted more than four million customer visits in a recent year. Currently, the largest Cabela's retail facility is in Hamburg, Pennsylvania, with more than 250,000 square feet of floor space.

The company began in 1961 when Dick Cabela came up with a plan to resell fishing flies he purchased while at a furniture show in Chicago, Illinois.
