REI grand opening in Fresno

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

REI grand opening in Fresno

So, I was an uber geek and was in line at 7:30 a.m. Did score some great deals though. :nod: Anyone else there?

Too far away.

However, the new Cabela's in Reno scheduled to open in November is already on my calendar.

I went by around 2:00, but it was just to check it out as I have not a penny to spend.

We've a new Cabella opening in Olympia soon. I think it's the first in Washington State. I've never been in a Cabella store before.... I always thought they were more geared for hunting (an assumption I made simply because I've only heard Cabella mentioned from hunting friends).

The Olympia store is going up pretty fast but I haven't heard when the opening date is. I'll have to check it out.

My wife said now I can move to Fresno. Then I can go to the mountains every weekend and visit REI all the time. :)

Oddly enough I went in (on Sunday of opening weekend) and didn't buy anything. My wife and I were simply happy to have an REI in neighborhood after moving from a multiply-REI served area (Bay Area) two years ago. Given that we use the REI Visa and get huge dividends as a result its a guarantee we'll be back in there soon. We can also have our REI Outlet purchases shipped there which saves on shipping (free shipping if they do that instead of ship to your house).

Inside sources tell me that there is a chance that Cabela's will be coming to south Selma in a few years, and there's an even better chance that Bass Pro Shops will be one of the key retailers if the Tulare Motor Sports Complex is approved: http://tularemotorspeedway.com/index.html
