What happened to Cabela’s old headquarters in Sidney, Nebraska

What happened to Cabela’s old headquarters in Sidney, Nebraska

Several things have happened in Sidney since the buyout of Cabela’s by Bass Pro Shops. The closing of Cabela’s resulted in the loss of nearly 2000 jobs in the local economy, or 1/3 of the people in Sidney needed to look for work.  The loss of revenue to the local economy resulted in many mom-and-pop stores closing up business after years of productivity in Sidney’s downtown district.

“Businesses open, and someday they may close.  We can work together to build something to help the folks in Sidney, Nebraska, be fruitful again.  Capitalism is not a charity; however, helping those who have suffered a loss is.  No one has ever gone poor from helping others.” stated Douglas Vandergraph.  His # Amazon-like online shopping center Bargainbrute.com is currently looking into Sidney’s once productive city as an opportunity for a new retail headquarters.  Douglas states, “Sidney offers a unique opportunity for a retail headquarters.  We do not currently have a walk-in retail store, but that could change with Cabela’s no longer inhabiting their beautiful Sidney Headquarters.  The opportunity exists where a ready-trained group of online marketing and product distribution professionals living in Sidney is not currently doing a job they are best adapted to.  We see where a possible underutilized workforce could jump in and help us make a move to the next level. You have to understand the dynamics that make up small-town America.  Folks know each other, and in some cases, it is a large family.  People go back as far as Kindergarten in some cases.  I have just had so many good experiences in Nebraska and with the people of Western Nebraska.  I married a Nebraska native from a small town north of the Kansas border(Red Cloud, Ne).  This is a worthwhile cause.”  We love Nebraska.  I remember jumping in Dad’s pick-up to visit Sidney each year for our annual Cabela run.

We need help getting set up in Sidney.  At Bargainbrute.com, we require financial backing to move our operations into Sidney, Nebraska, from Fort Collins, Colorado.  Plain and simple, we want to help.  We want to establish a headquarters in Sidney, but we cannot afford to do so at this time.  Will you help us make a move and reestablish a similar working infrastructure for this town’s citizens?  We offer many of the same products as Cabela’s did and so much more.  We run our company as a family, and our growth potential is limitless.  We are a privately owned organization that is entirely transparent.  We are not beholden to any debtors or shareholders.  If everyone would forego a cup of coffee tomorrow morning and donate those few dollars to our cause, we could reestablish jobs for the citizens of Sydney, Ne.  Please reach out with any questions, and we will respond promptly.  There is no guarantee that we will be Sidney’s next big thing, but we are willing to try.  You can help us by visiting our website by CLICKING HERE.
