‘Tis better to give than to receive this time of year and we’ve learned Cabela’s will offer an early holiday celebration and welcome customers with FREE refreshments and hundreds of giveaways (a total value of $5,000 in prizes) at the company’s Thornton and Lone Tree stores on Saturday, December 12. The first 250 customers, ages 18 and older, in line Saturday morning at 7:30 am at each store, will receive a mystery envelope containing information about their gift. All envelopes will be distributed randomly and could include vouchers for Nikon Monarch binoculars (value $299.99), Barnett youth bows (value $99.99), Peet boot dryers (value $44), Mitchell 300 spinning reels (value $49.99), one of five Savage Arms rimfire rifles (value $399.99), Cabela’s gift cards and much more. (Note: Firearm winners will be required to complete and pass a standard federal background check to take ownership of the firearm.) Both stores open at 8 a.m. 14050 Lincoln St., Thornton, 303-625-6100 or 10670 Cabela Dr., Lone Tree, 303-625-9920.
