Cabelas, that legendary store which is famous for outdoor clothes and equipment is currently celebrating the "Grand Opening" of their new store which is located at Exit 42 of I-95 (Maine Turnpike)in Scarborough. The store is just 25 minutes north of the Captain Lord Mansion.
Bev and I visited the new store last night and were absolutely taken aback by the size, scope and extensive merchandising. We were also impressed with the affordable prices. One funny thing happened while we were walking around checking things out; we passed several large safes and wondered why they would be selling safes. Then it dawned on us; they were gun safes!
Just visiting the store is an adventure, even if you don't purchase anything! There are over 350 trophy mounts on display throughout the store. There is a "Conservation Mountain" located in the center of the store with mounted bears, elk, moose, wolves, deer and other wild animals. Also, we were amazed at the large wall aquarium with representative live sport fish. Also, a full size float plane is hanging from the ceiling inside the store. Wow! Rick Litchfield, Innkeeper
