Cabela's announces plans for three next-generation stores
Feb '12
Cabela's Incorporated announced plans to open three next-generation stores and relocate its Winnipeg, Canada, store in 2013. Construction is scheduled to begin on next-generation stores in Columbus, Ohio; Grandville, Mich.; and Louisville, Ky., in the summer of 2012 and Cabela's expects to open each location in spring 2013.

Ranging from 80,000- to 88,000-square-feet, the stores will be built in Cabela's trademark style with an exterior of log construction, stonework, wood siding and metal roofing. Large glass storefronts will allow customers to view much of the stores' interior as they approach the building.

Cabela's next-generation layout is designed to maximize product assortment and availability while surrounding customers in the outdoor experience with wildlife and outdoor memorabilia displays. The Columbus, Grandville and Louisville stores will feature a Gun Library, Bargain Cave and Fudge Shop, among other features unique to each location.

The 80,000-square-foot Columbus store, Cabela's first in Ohio, is expected to employ up to 175 full- and part-time employees. Most will come from Columbus and the surrounding area. It will be located in the Polaris Centers development at Gemini Parkway and Interstate 71, which includes Costco, Cambria Suites, Toys R Us, Babies R Us, Hobby Lobby as well as Polaris Business Park and numerous hotels, restaurants and other national retailers.

The 88,000-square-foot Grandville store will be Cabela's second in Michigan, joining the Dundee location. Located on the east end of the Rivertown Mall retail corridor in a new retail center, the store is expected to employee about 200 full- and part-time employees. It also will feature a Boat Shop.

The Louisville store, Cabela's first in Kentucky, will be 88,000-square-feet and is expected to employ approximately 200 full- and part-time employees. The facility will be located in the Old Brownsboro Crossing development near the Summit Lifestyle Center along Interstates 265 and 71. The development includes Costco and Lowe's, as well as restaurants and medical offices.

"The loyalty of our online and catalog customers made this happen in all three regions," said Cabela's Chief Executive Officer Tommy Millner. "We couldn't be more excited to bring the retail experience to Columbus, Grandville and Louisville, areas where people are passionate about the outdoors and embrace the Cabela's lifestyle."

The Winnipeg store will be moved from a 44,000-square-foot location in the Polo Park district to a new 80,000-square-foot structure at the intersection of the Sterling Lyon Parkway and Kenaston Boulevard. It will be part of a new retail development that will include IKEA and other retailers.

Construction is scheduled to begin this spring and Cabela's expects the store to open in spring 2013. Featuring Cabela's next-generation layout, the store will offer an aquarium, Gun Library, Fudge Shop, museum-quality wildlife displays, animal mounts and thousands of outdoor products.
