View Full Version : Cabela's catalogs - where are they?

05-20-2009, 01:34 PM
One of my partners and I were talking this morning about Cabela's catalogs. I know I have bought a ton of stuff from Cabela's over the years, and he has, too. Although for the past 3 or so years I have normally made my orders over the internet, I nearly always picked what I wanted from the catalog. I mean say you are looking for fishing line. You can read about all the lines Cabela's have in the catalog in a jiffy. On the other hand, it takes quite a while to read about each line on Cabela's website as you have to hit a link for each one of them and sometimes a second one. If you want to compare 2 of them, you have to go back and forth between the 2 links. Bottom line is I depended a lot on the catalogs.

What my partner and I both have noticed is that we're not getting hardly any catalogs any more. For example Cabela's has for years put out 2 spring master catalogs. My partner and I had been getting them both at the office and at home. This year neither one of us has gotten the master catalog at all. There are a number of other catalogs from Cabela's we haven't gotten.

Is this unique to us, or are they not sending catalogs to others? They sure couldn't have dropped me for lack of business.

I have received two cataglogs and two flyers this past month with some great deals. I would email customer service questioning why you are not receiving catalogs.

Blair I would give them a call because I get a catalog ever month for them.

I ordered and asked that they send me a new catalouge and haven't gotten it yet. Hopefully soon, made it easy to compare before ordering online

You need to stop by my mail box every now and then. I get them every week. BP and Cab. It drives me up the wall. Of course I dont really need anything . That is a good problem.

I've received several this year also.

I just called Cabela's, and the lady said she didn't know why but occasionally they would cut back on the catalogs they sent to some customers. As I said earlier they sure didn't cut back on me because of lack of business.

Catalogs are expensive. They need to track customers better. I was recieving catalogs in a steady stream but only doing business once a year in a retail store . There is no profit in that way of doing business.
I hope they get it straightened out to where only folks wanting catalogs get them.
I don't miss mine ,everything is online. Illinoisgiller

They are printed at a printing company called Quebecor World In Franklin, Ky. Yes they are expensive to print and they have cut them back quite a bit. I was the interim safety supervisor there last summer and my father-in-law still works there. He has been off and on voluntary lay-off for the last 9 months or so. One of the first things that companies cut out when the economy got bad was printed advertisments and catalogs.

I liked when I worked there because i was able to see the catalogs and the new stuff right off the press before they got mailed out.
