    It's like a meatspace Amazon.

    There is still a few around. The one I go to has really nice liquor store and a chain butcher shop. The butcher has some real good chicken tendies and pretty selection of bourbon. Chicken and bourbon is all I go there for. Sometimes a steak or a roast. That's about it. The rest of the plaza is ok but we rarely shop there.
  • Cabela's is terrible. Every time I've gone into one I leave wondering what the hell I was doing there. Never fails. I can usually find something I can use a Bass Pro, but something about Cabela's is just off-putting.

    Try Houlton, maine.

    It went to shiat when Bass bought them out/merged. It's like they get the Bass rejects to sell.
  • I was told in high school, or maybe grade school, that direct competition benefits both competitors.

    1.  Walk-through fish tank with native species?
    2.  Circus peanuts.
  • That's what we need, more "rape the wilderness in style" stores.

    Keep looking, posers.  You don't know where to find it, and you killed it all anyway.  Your $1500 worth of hiking gear is only to impress the other hikers.
    Just like in the city.  You should just stay there, where it's easier.

    It's a place with stores and kiosks and such, and possibly a department store, but that's not important now.
  • Flannel shirts?   Duluth Trading for the win.

    Spendy as all fark, though.

    Found a couple at the local Sally's... still had the tags in them, got em both for $15.

    / raised a glass to the old dude who died and probably got 'em as Xmas presents and just stashed them in his closet.

    Full disclosure, I went in a Cabela's about two years ago, didn't seem too bad.  Generic "outdoors-y sports store".  But then I didn't look around much, just went in one Saturday because I needed a pair of steel toed boots Monday.

    /Got reimbursed so I got the most expensive pair I found.

    Kiosks?  Nah, that's a mall.  A shopping center has parking lots in the middle (or middles) with stores around the edges and nothing much to keep the rain off your head.  This particular manifestation of the horrible idea looks like this from above:

    I only see one big building site left, and it's all the way across from Cabela's, with sightlines between the two pretty much obstructed, so it just might work.
  • We need winter weight, long sleeve Hawaiian shirts.

    It's where the movie theater that you used to go to is. It had an arcade in the 80s, now it's got a Dave and Busters for when you want to get in a drunken fight with off-duty cops.

    In that case I will change the name to:
    Flannel Flight to Andropov
