Been a tough decade for Nebraska-based HQs. I really don't see how this will do anything but decimate Sydney. :(

Agreed.

Interestingly, Bass Pro has no issues with their new HQ’s remaining in much smaller Springfield, MO.. But yet a much larger metro like Omaha, does not have enough talent to sustain Pepperjax Grill HQ’s.. So new ownership just had to move their HQ’s to Denver, Colorado.. I already called BS on the reasoning for that move..

But I digress, very sad for the city of Sydney, NE indeed...

Ciao..LiO...Peace

Bass Pro begins detailing what Cabela's operations will stay in Sidney; no word on cuts

Just read this online. For now it sounds like it will be a decent representation in Nebraska. Could have shut it all down.

I like the part ( to paraphrase) where they will consolidate all the Sydney Operations to one building and offer to lease the other to someone who wants to bring new business to Sydney for $1 a year effectively donating the building use to Sydney. At least that is how I understood what was reported.

Bass Pro has added Cabela's to their sponsorship of Ryan Newman's #31 Chevrolet Camaro. Bass pro is one of 3 primary sponsors for the #31 so it won't be there every race.

It looks more and more to me like they are going to maintain both brand names for at least a while. Not what I expected.

Anyone else notice a lot more tv advertising for Cabelas since the change?

Pretty normal action to try to pad the bank account with sales and promotions before the changeover. Time Warner was discounting TV and Internet packages like crazy before the Spectrum takeover.

The take over is done.

I have been in the store too in La Vista and it seems to me anyway that inventory is up including the Cabala's branded items.

Cabela's seems to be primarily located in the Appalachia, the Midwest, West, and Western Canada while Bass Pro is more Southern, Northeastern and California focused. I wonder if it will basically just be a sort of Carl's Jr./Hardee's type situation.

It's not unusual for companies to maintain two brands for several years after an acquisition, and then merge the two. There are also companies like Kroger who will run purchased stores under the old name, but you can tell from private label products, etc, that it's a Kroger store.
