The companies said the driving force behind the agreement were the “complementary business philosophies, product offerings, expertise and geographic footprints of the two businesses.”

Bass Pro said it intends to maintain Cabela’s management and facilities in Sidney, Nebraska, where it was founded in 1961. Also, it will continue to honor customer rewards programs such as the Cabela’s Club Loyalty program.
