Cabela’s to open Indy-area store in fall 2015
Sidney, Neb. — Cabela’s Incorporated plans to open a store in Noblesville, Ind., serving the greater Indianapolis area. Construction is scheduled to begin later in 2014 and the store is expected to open in fall 2015.
The 80,000-sq.-ft. store will be located in the new Saxony Campus development adjacent to Hamilton Town Center. It will be Cabela’s second Indiana store, joining the Hammond location opened in 2007, and is expected to employ approximately 170 full-time and part-time employees.
The store will be built in Cabela’s next-generation layout, designed to surround customers in a complete outdoor experience. The building’s exterior will reflect Cabela’s popular store model with log construction, stonework, wood siding and metal roofing. A large glass storefront will allow customers to view much of the store’s interior as they approach the building.
The interior 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, fudge shop and deli. Currently, Cabela’s operates 51 stores across North America and has announced plans to open an additional 23 over the next two years
“We hope outdoorsmen and women across Indiana are as excited as we are about this store, which will be extraordinary in every way,” said Tommy Millner, Cabela’s CEO. “For years, thousands of Hoosiers have faithfully supported Cabela’s through our catalogs, website and neighboring retail locations. Now those loyal customers have a second Cabela’s store to call their own.”
