Cabela’s Incorporated, the World’s Foremost Outfitter of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, announced plans to introduce the unique Cabela’s retail experience to customers in three new markets in 2015 and 2016 – Ammon, Idaho; Short Pump, Va.; and Fort Oglethorpe, Ga.
Construction is scheduled to begin later this year and Cabela’s plans to open the location in spring 2015. The 42,000-square-foot store will be located in the Sandcreek Commons development near Hitt Road and Sunnyside Avenue off Interstate 15, serving the greater Idaho Falls area.
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.
Construction is scheduled to begin in 2015 and Cabela’s anticipates a spring 2016 opening. The 97,500-square-foot store will be located in the Short Pump Station regional shopping center near the intersection of West Broad Street and Cold Hill Lane along Interstate 64, serving the greater Richmond area.
It will be Cabela’s second Virginia location, joining the Bristol store scheduled to open in 2015. The store will employ approximately 150 full-time and part-time employees, with most coming from Richmond and the surrounding area.
The store will be built in Cabela’s next-generation layout, designed to surround customers in an outdoor experience. 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.
