    Used to Shop at Cabella's

    Not any more. The 1000 gram thinsulate McKinley hunting boots that my dad and I bought in 1990 are still in use. The waterfowl parkas that I've bought at least 3 of (as they see a lot of hard wear in the winters) have gotten progressively cheaper over the years to the point where I won't be buying another - a $3 zipper breaks and my $300+ parka becomes a piece of junk - and it's usually in the brutal cold when it happens (twice now).

    It's the same story everywhere - when they went public and the focus became profits over people the slide started. Then I read "Free Lunch", and realized Cabella's was no different than every other subsidy chasing corporation out there and that pretty much sealed the deal for me - adios Cabella's.

    No idea how the stock trades - don't own it - wouldn't short it, just know that the "good old days" are called that for a reason.
