Calgary’s first Cabela’s opens to the public a week from today! On Thursday, October 15, you will be able to check out the 70,000 square foot store located at Deerfoot City. Hubby, the kids and I got a sneak peak of the store a couple days ago and were blown away!
The store is designed to give customers an outdoor-like experience. Wildlife displays are all over the store. The animals they have chosen are ones that you would find in Alberta like bears, ducks and raccoons. Z loved them! They went into the Glenbow Museum archives to get local pictures to use in their decor. It was quite impressive.
We sampled crackers, cheese and game meats that will be available for Christmas. I was happy to find that the Elk Summer Sausage and the Elk Pepperoni didn’t have pork casing and we really enjoyed them. I’ll definitely be coming back to stock up on them for the holidays.
The Archery Range was so much fun and Q and I had a great time learning the proper technique. The Fudge Shop smelled so good as they made over 40 flavours of fudge. I can vouch for their tastiness along with the roasted nuts from the nut cart. Yum!
The cooking section was extensive and I seemed to want everything they offered! From smokers to seasonings, they had a huge selection to make any cook happy.
