Sidney, Neb. -- Cabela’s Inc. said Thursday it will open a Cabela’s Outpost Store in Kalispell, Mont., joining the outdoor retailer’s single full-line Billings store in the state.
Construction on the 42,000-sq.-ft. location is scheduled to begin in spring 2013 and Cabela’s said it expects to open the store in fall 2013.
The Outpost concept is designed to serve smaller markets of 250,000 or less. Cabela’s said the Kalispell location will feature a Core-Flex floor plan allowing products to be rotated seasonally, as well as online order kiosks and an in-store pickup program.
The first Outpost store is slated to open Oct. 4 in Union Gap, Wash., and the company has already announced plans to open another in Saginaw, Mich., in 2013.
Ten next-generation Cabela’s stores – ranging from 80,000 sq. ft. to 100,000 sq. ft. – are planned to open by the end of 2014.
