    You pay sales tax if a retailer has a brick and mortar store in the state where you reside. I remember that when Cabelas opened the Boise store (years prior to my local Post Falls, ID store) we began paying sales tax on mail order items from Cabelas.

    They look at traffic. When I was in Utah I was on the Perry city Planning Commission. Perry was picked for its proximity to Yellowstone.
    A letter from the Bear River Bird Refuge Manager killed the location ( along the Bear River Refuge) The Utah Candelas moved to Nephi.
    At that time they were called destination stores.
    If you look at other store locations they are Just off of Freeways,.. The Mitchell SD store certainly doesn't have the population in the area to support the store.
    Ive stopped and spent more $ at the Owatonna, Mitchell and Rapid City Stores than Boise and Nephi.
    Weird things happen when big stores show up.
    Walmart came to Perry UTah , After a few months all the local store sales grew

    I've been purchasing from Cabelas since the days of having to fill out the paper form and mail it in days.
    The prices would be allot cheaper if they didn't send out three new catalogs every month. I get bombarded with these things.

    If they would cut these out the prices would drop substantially.

    All of the crass commercialism out there bothers me. I liked the way things were in simpler times but I guess adapt or die.

    Actually, the numbers tell you for every dollar spend printing and sending out catalogs, they generate in excess of $7.00 in sales.

    I'm not disputing this number but I am wondering where you are getting it? I have never seen any number to that effect in their 10-Q's or 10-K's.
