Cabela’s Retail, Inc

Crabtree, Rohrbaugh & Associates partnered with Cabela’s Retail Inc. to design their 247,000 SF flagship store in Hamburg, PA. Construction was completed in 2003 and the store opened its doors to seven million visitors in its first year.

Each store includes hunting, fishing, camping, archery, auto/atv, marine and footwear departments, a specialized fly fishing shop, a full-service restaurant featuring a wild game menu, a gift shop, an art gallery, an old country store, a furniture department, a laser shooting gallery, a full conference center and a specialized, first class gun library featuring antique and valuable guns for sale.

In addition, hundreds of the world’s largest trophy mounts are located around the store. Some stores include a museum of up to 12,000 SF featuring white tail deer, mule deer, elk and other indigenous species and a live aquarium showcasing freshwater fish species native to the store’s location.
