Cabela's Black Friday Festivities

Cabela's Black Friday Festivities

It is hard to believe that next week is Thanksgiving already!  Where has the time gone?

I have never been a huge fan of the "black friday" hoopla, however there is one event that I just may have to line up for in the middle of the night.  One of my favorite outdoor retailers is putting on quite a spectacle for their customers.

Cabela's in Hoffman Estates is pulling out all the stops and making this dreadful shopping excursion into a big party with giveaways and even movies.

Diane with Cabela's has kept me informed of her plans and it sounds like a really great time.

Here is what you can expect from the store:

Hoffman Estates, IL(Nov 10, 2016) – Cabela’s will celebrate Black Friday, Nov. 25, by offering customers extended hours, entertainment and hundreds of giveaways at the company’s Hoffman Estates location.

Doors will open at 5 a.m., and the first 600 Cabela’s customers in line, 18 years of age or older, will be eligible to receive a mystery envelope containing information about their gift. All gifts will be distributed randomly and could include outdoor products, firearms, Cabela’s cash cards and much more. Firearm winners will be required to complete and pass a standard federal background check to take ownership of the firearm.

The festivities at Cabela’s Hoffman Estates store will be part of a nationwide celebration in which Cabela’s will give away more than $800,000 in Black Friday gifts across the company’s participating U.S. retail locations. Giveaways will vary by location and could include:

  • Browning AB3 Hunter in 6.5 Creedmoor
  • Badlands Release Day Pack
  • Bradley Original Smoker
  • Cabela’s cash cards
  • And more

Cabela’s will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Nov. 24. Customers can visit to shop Cabela’s one-day, online Thanksgiving Day sale. The store will then open at 5 a.m. on Black Friday, Nov. 25, and will remain open until 10 p.m.

Additionally, Cabela’s is offering daily Pre-Black Friday Deals online, Nov. 11 through Nov. 25. For more information on holiday events and hours, visit, call the store at 847-645-0400 or visit the store at 5225 Prairie Stone Parkway, Hoffman Estates, IL 60192
