Cabela’s Incorporated, the World’s Foremost Outfitter of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, announced plans to bring the Cabela’s retail experience to customers in Calgary, Alberta and the surrounding area.
 
Construction is scheduled to begin later this year and Cabela’s Canada plans to open the store in the fall of 2015. The 70,000-square-foot store will be located adjacent the Deerfoot Mall near the intersection of Deerfoot Trail NE and 64 Avenue NE. The Deerfoot Mall is currently under plan review as an open air shopping center redevelopment project.
 
It will be Cabela’s third location in Alberta, joining the 70,000-square-foot and 50,000-square-foot Edmonton locations opened in 2011 and May of this year. It is expected to employ approximately 180 full-time and part-time employees. Most will come from Calgary and the surrounding area.
 
“Alberta has been great to Cabela’s,” said Tommy Millner, Cabela’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our two Edmonton locations have received tremendous support. It is time to expand to Calgary and better serve the loyal Cabela’s customers in southern Alberta.”
 
The store will be built in Cabela’s next-generation layout, designed to surround customers in an outdoor-like experience with museum-quality wildlife displays and a large mountain replica. In addition to thousands of quality outdoor products, the store will include an indoor archery range and archery tech room, Bargain Cave and Fudge Shop.
 
Cabela’s stores showcase thousands of products, including hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, boating and wildlife-watching gear, as well as clothing and outdoor-themed gifts and furnishings. The company is famous for its strong brand and world-renowned reputation for delivering quality merchandise, value and legendary customer service.
 
Cabela’s Canada was established in 2007 with a store and headquarters for Canadian operations in Winnipeg, Manitoba. In 2010, Cabela’s Canada opened its current corporate headquarters and call center in Winnipeg.
 
Currently, Cabela’s operates 58 stores across North America, including five in Canada – Winnipeg; Saskatoon and Regina, Saskatchewan; and two Edmonton locations. The company has announced plans to open an additional 20 stores over the next two years, including locations in Barrie, Ontario, July 10; Nanaimo, British Columbia, this fall; and Moncton, New Brunswick, in 2015.
