Cabela's announces plans for two new stores

 


Cabela’s Incorporated, the World’s Foremost Outfitter of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, announced today plans to expand Cabela’s retail footprint and legendary customer service to two new locations: McDonough, Ga., and Lee’s Summit, Mo.

McDonough

The 70,000-square-foot location is expected to begin construction this year and Cabela’s anticipates a fall 2017 opening. The store will be located off Exit 222 of Interstate 75 near the intersection of Jodeco in the newly proposed Jodeco Atlanta South development in Henry County.

“Georgia is a great place for the outdoors and has been a great place for Cabela’s recent retail expansion,” said Tommy Millner, Cabela’s Chief Executive Officer. “We are positive this new location will receive tremendous support from outdoor enthusiasts throughout central Georgia while also providing a second convenient location for the greater Atlanta area.”

Upon opening, it will become Cabela’s fourth location in Georgia, joining the Augusta, Acworth and Fort Oglethorpe stores. Cabela’s expects to employ approximately 130 full-time, part-time and seasonal employees at the store, most of whom would come from the surrounding area.

The store is designed around a new concept that is more cost effective in a focused effort to bring more Cabela’s stores to more convenient locations to better serve customers. The new store design will continue to offer customers Cabela’s unique experience with an immersive outdoor environment including a 360 degree mountain and taxidermy feature at the front of the store, dozens of museum-quality taxidermy mounts, vintage outdoor photos and memorabilia and a regionally specific theme.

Additionally, the store will include an archery and firearm tech room, indoor archery range and Bargain Cave, along with thousands of outdoor products displayed using Cabela’s brand new floor plan that dedicates more square footage of floor space to the company’s core areas in hunting, fishing, camping and recreational shooting.

The new layout will allow the store to be more flexible with its product assortment as hunting, fishing, camping and recreational-shooting activities change throughout the year, resulting in the store featuring more in-season products and gear.

The 70,000-square-foot location is expected to begin construction this year and the company anticipates either a fall 2017 or spring 2018 opening. The store will be located near the intersection of U.S. Highway 50 and Interstate 470 near JC Penny, Macy’s, Lowe’s and Super Target.

“We are very excited to open a second location in the Kansas City area,” Millner said. “This is a fantastic place for the outdoors and has been a fantastic place for Cabela’s, as evidenced by our existing Kansas City store as well as our online and catalog businesses. This new location will allow us to strengthen our service and commitment to customers in the surrounding area.”

Cabela’s expects to employ approximately 150 full-time, part-time and seasonal employees at the store, most of whom would come from the surrounding area. Upon opening, it will become Cabela’s second location in the Kansas City market, joining the Kansas City, Kan., store opened in 2002. Additionally, it will be the company’s second Missouri location, joining the Hazelwood store opened in 2007.

The store is designed around a new concept that is more cost effective in a focused effort to bring more Cabela’s stores to more convenient locations to better serve customers. The new store design will continue to offer customers Cabela’s unique experience with an immersive outdoor environment including a 360 degree mountain and taxidermy feature at the front of the store, dozens of museum-quality taxidermy mounts, vintage outdoor photos and memorabilia and a regionally specific theme.

Additionally, the store will include an archery and firearm tech room, indoor archery range and Bargain Cave, along with thousands of outdoor products displayed using Cabela’s brand new floor plan that dedicates more square footage of floor space to the company’s core areas in hunting, fishing, camping and recreational shooting.

The new layout will allow the store to be more flexible with its product assortment as hunting, fishing, camping and recreational-shooting activities change throughout the year, resulting in the store featuring more in-season products and gear.

Cabela’s began as a kitchen-table dream in the home of founders Dick and Mary Cabela in 1961. The company is now famous for its strong brand and world-renowned reputation for delivering quality merchandise, value and legendary customer service.
