Not trying to sound sarcastic, but only someone from southern California could ask "What is Cabela's?".
It's like a shopping mall for people who hunt or fish or boat or camp or hike. The Kardashian's don't shop there.
Nearly everyone in the rest of the USA and Canada has one of these hunting/fishing superstores in their home state or nearby.

Cabela's, the World's Foremost Outfitter of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, was born somewhat inadvertently in 1961 when Dick Cabela came up with a plan to sell fishing flies he purchased while at a furniture show in Chicago. Upon returning home to Chappell, Nebraska, Dick ran a classified ad in the Casper, Wyoming, newspaper reading: "12 hand-tied flies for $1." It generated one response.
Undaunted, Dick formulated a new plan, rewriting the ad to read "FREE Introductory offer! 5 hand tied flies....25¢ Postage....Handling" and placing it in national outdoor magazines. It didn't take long for the orders to begin arriving from sportsmen and women around the country.

Outdoor gear giants Bass Pro and Cabela's will combine in a $4.5 billion deal sometime later this year. Bass Pro has stores in CA.
Combined they will have 39,000 employees at 175 locations.
