Why would a Cave advertise that they are only 12 miles from Cabela's? I can't figure out the connection. It's highlighted on their website on their main page... Is it common for gun owners to visit caves?

Anyone have any thoughts?

Cabelas does sell things one might use in a cave, flashlights, clothing, shoes.
You find it odd a place that host outdoor activities mentiones cabelas as a reference point?

This cave isn't for climbing. It only gives guided tours. You don't need any outdoor gear for this cave. It's a tourist spot...

Cabela's is known in business as a Destination Retailer. Simply put, this means that shoppers will travel a greater distance to get to one, will spend more at each visit, plan the visit further in advance and for a longer shopping period, and very importantly, there are more shoppers per car load that arrives at the store.

So, we have a larger group of wealthier people willing to travel longer and spend time and money than the average mall shopper. Sounds a bit like Disneyworld doesn't it? Now add to that the fact that Cabelas has thousands of carloads of those groups per day per store. If only a couple of those each day convince dad to make a side trip on the way home, that's an additional 700 carloads per year that visit the caves. That could be 3,000 or more visitors per year just on Cabelas' scraps.

Sounds like a great idea to be linked to Cabelas any way you can be.

One more point. I just looked up the map of the caves. There isn't anything else around there EXCEPT the Cabelas store. Unless you consider the next town over, my right hand to God, it's called Virginville. Really. It's true.

Also, when you drive down that 100 miles of route 78, you don't see anything except the sign that says Cabelas, so maybe they're plugging into the fact that Cabelas is a better known landmark than anywhere else around.

Yep... approaching in the dark you see the glow off in the distance, the place seems rise up like the casinos in the desert.

Google Hamburg PA tourism and you get a picture of Cabela's. That's really the main draw for the area. So of course business will advertise that they are near Cabela's. Last week I stayed overnight in Reading PA. Just so I could spend the day shopping at Cabelas without driving fatigue.
