Cabela’s® is a national provider of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear and wanted an artificial habitat design with plant and animal species to anchor their store environment. Part of the retailer’s success to date has been the creation of locations that provide truly unique shopping experiences and are as much wildlife museums and education centers as they are retail stores. The centerpiece of the design was to include a replica mountain complete with waterfalls cascading into ponds, live trout, and displays of trophy animals. Several of these animals would be shown interacting in realistic recreations of their natural habitat.
Commercial Silk Int’l was selected to design the natural looking artificial habitat using silk plants, trees and shrubs. Our team worked closely with an artificial rock vendor to select and design the appropriate vegetation and habitat for the various wildlife, which included zebra, bear, antelope, raccoon, deer, goat, and other species.
Commercial Silk Int'l has successfully completed various national installations to date. While Cabela’s® is known as a retailer, its stores are considered destinations and tourist attractions, drawing visitors from hundreds of miles away to admire the collection of trophy animals and authentic feeling natural habitat.
