Cabela’s® Plans Three New Stores

by Nate Hunter

Sidney, Neb. — The new stores will open in three new markets for Cabela’s in 2015 and 2016.

Sidney, Neb. — Cabela’s Incorporated, a leading retail outfitter of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, plans to introduce the unique Cabela’s retail experience to customers in three new markets in 2015 and 2016: Ammon, Idaho; Short Pump, Va.; and Fort Oglethorpe, Ga.

In Ammon, Idaho, construction is scheduled to begin later this year with an opening planned for spring 2015. The 42,000-square-foot store will serve the greater Idaho Falls area. It will be Cabela’s third Idaho location, joining the Boise store opened in 2006 and the Post Falls store opened in 2007.

“It’s incredibly exciting to announce a third location in Idaho, a place Cabela’s loves,” says Tommy Millner, Cabela’s CEO. “The continued loyalty of Cabela’s customers across the state, coupled with the success of our Boise and Post Falls locations, made it an easy decision to open a store in Ammon.”

In Short Pump, Va., construction is scheduled to begin in 2015 and Cabela’s anticipates a spring 2016 opening. The 97,500-square-foot store will be located in the Short Pump Station regional shopping center, serving the greater Richmond area. It will be Cabela’s second Virginia location, joining the Bristol store scheduled to open in 2015.

The store will be built in Cabela’s next-generation layout, designed to surround customers in an outdoor experience, including a mountain with a built-in aquarium.

“Virginians are hungry for the Cabela’s retail experience,” Millner says. “We’re thrilled to begin the project and look forward to opening the doors.”

In Fort Oglethorpe, Ga., construction is scheduled to begin later this year and Cabela’s projects a fall 2015 opening. The 70,000-square-foot store will be located in a development currently anchored by Costco, serving the greater Chattanooga, Tenn., area. It will be Cabela’s third Georgia store, joining the Augusta location scheduled to open in March and the Acworth location scheduled to open this fall.

Currently, Cabela’s operates 50 stores across North America with plans to open an additional 23 over the next 2 years.

Cabela’s Incorporated, headquartered in Sidney, Neb., is a leading specialty retailer, and the world’s largest direct marketer, of hunting, fishing, camping and related outdoor merchandise.
