Cabela’s plans three new stores in new markets, 23 total new stores

Sidney, Neb. — Cabela’s Inc. plans to enter three new markets in 2015 and 2016. The retailer will open new stores in Ammon, Idaho; Short Pump, Va.; and Fort Oglethorpe, Ga.

Construction is scheduled to begin later in 2014 on the Ammon store and Cabela’s plans to open the location in spring 2015. The 42,000-sq.-ft. store will be located in the Sandcreek Commons development. It will be Cabela’s third Idaho location, joining the Boise store opened in 2006 and the Post Falls store opened in 2007. Cabela’s expects the store to employ approximately 90 full-time and part-time employees, most of whom will come from Ammon and the surrounding area.

The Ammon store will be designed with a rugged look and feel and offer seasonal product assortments. In addition the store also will feature museum-quality wildlife displays, digital signage, an indoor archery range and archery tech room, gun counter and more.

Customers will have access to all Cabela’s merchandise via online order kiosks, as well as free shipping with an in-store pickup program. In-store pickup allows customers to order Cabela’s gear ahead of time and pick it up at their convenience at the store of their choice.

Construction is scheduled to begin in 2015 on the Short Pump store and Cabela’s anticipates a spring 2016 opening. The 97,500-sq.-ft. store will be located in the Short Pump Station regional shopping center.

It will feature thousands of quality outdoor products, as well as museum-quality wildlife displays, a mountain with a built-in aquarium, gun library, bargain cave, indoor archery range and archery tech room, boat shop, fudge shop and deli. It also will feature a Wildlife and Land Management department offering a full complement of tractors, attachments, feed and seed and more.
