Colossal Cabela’s

El Mirage, Arizona

We visited Cabela’s in  Glendale the other day. It’s a colossal store with over 160,000 square feet of retail space.

While the store size is amazing, the wildlife display is the focal point of the entire store.


Many of the animals are shown in action like this mountain goat jumping across from one rock to another.

You can get an idea of the mountain’s height by comparing it to the woman in white (with her arms raised) standing at the bottom of the canyon walls .


Because most hunting is done in the fall, the scenery shows the animals during hunting season.


Another section of the store shows African safari animals.



And just to make marine lovers feel at home, there is an extensive aquarium.

  1. I was at the Cabela’s in Boise when they had “feeding time” at the aquarium. They let loose a whole mess of live goldfish and the trout and other fish went into a feeding frenzy. A few of the little kids stated crying!

  2. Did you hear the family speak, Kathy? They may have been Israeli. The Hebrew word for fish sounds like “dog”. The place reminds me of Sheels in Sparks.

  3. What’s for dinner? Goldfish!

    So, was anyone buying anything? I always wonder about these stores…..

    1. Actually, people were buying stuff. Mainly grandmas buying pink camouflage for their granddaughters. 🙂
