Cabela's, known as the World's Foremost Outfitter of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, will open its newest destination retail store in Hoffman Estates, Ill, on Friday, September 21, 2007.

The northwest metro Chicago store is Cabela's first in Illinois and the company's 20th retail location in the country.

Cabela's stores are known as premier shopping and tourism destinations, drawing visitors from the local area and from hundreds of miles away. Up to four million people are expected to visit the Hoffman Estates store annually, making it one of the top tourist attractions in the state.

The 185,000-square-foot, large-format superstore is located 20 minutes from Chicago's O'Hare Airport within the Prairie Stone Business Park at I-90 and Route 59.

Prairie Stone, which also serves as the headquarters for Sears Holdings Corp, is a 780-acre, master-planned business park surrounded by a forest preserve that captures the beauty of the surrounding Midwestern landscape.

Extraordinary in design and showcasing thousands of products from its world-famous catalog, a customer's average stay at a Cabela's store is a remarkable 3 1/2 hours, with half of the visitors coming from outside of 100 miles.

"We are thrilled that Hoffman Estates will be Cabela's first Illinois location," said Dennis Highby, Cabela's president and chief executive officer. "We are excited to introduce a new shopping and entertainment experience to the many outdoor enthusiasts in the region."

The Hoffman Estates store will be built in Cabela's trademark style that showcases the best of the outdoors in a spectacular indoor shopping experience. Cabela's stores are known as top-notch educational and entertainment attractions.
