Default Cabelas coming to Fort Oglethorpe!

Finally!! We are going to get a "big store" around my neck of the woods (I'm in Dalton)! I usually try to support the mom and pop stores, but none of them carry waterfowl gear or steel shot, so they don't do me much good. Finally will be able to shop a good store and most likely be able to find something if I get in a pinch!

I like Cabela's, but they can be overpriced on some items just as bass pro can. I will like having both in driving distance so I can get the best deals on items.

Academy is CHEAP compared to Cabelas. The competition from multiple stores will hopefully help drive down the prices but there will be a limit on how much the competition will drive down prices.

Most of the time the state tax is cheaper than the shipping costs.

Sure wish one of the big stores would come to Columbus. Dick's is the only thing we have. The only alternative is Gander Mountain or Academy in Auburn.

You can still order from Cabelas, no one will make you buy from there.

Just placed a couple orders on the 3rd and had one shipped to my house(Ga) and one shipped to my office(Fla).

They are already charging tax for the items shipped to Ga.

Even big box stores will run out of stuff or not have what you want in it at times. We have an Academy and a BPS and as soon as the stuff hits the shelves it gone.

Especially Ammo. You have to line up outside the BPS in So Fl before they open to get any .380, 38 special, 9mm, or .40. The other rounds are slowly becoming easier to get.

I live 8 miles from the Academy in Dalton, and I would not give you 2 cents for it. The people are rude, you have to hunt someone down to ask for help, and they act like they are doing you a favor selling you something. I have tried to buy a couple of guns and a chain link dog kennel from them. Have not been able to do so. I drove to the Academy in Chattanooga, and those people were falling all over themselves to help me.

The people at our academy are like car salesmen, you have to beat them off of you. Always willing to help and very nice.

Academy is cheaply made too. Gear last for fifteen minutes and done. Rather spend more on stuff that lasts.
