Cabela in negotiation to open retail store in East Hartford

Aug '05
Quality outdoor clothing and hunting accessories retailer Cabela's announced it is in negotiations to build one of its huge destination superstores on a portion of a 624-acre mixed-use development at historic Rentschler Field in East Hartford, Connecticut.

If ongoing negotiations for the project conclude successfully, Cabela's would likely commit to a minimum of 20 years at the location, with lease extensions possible. The Connecticut store would be similar in size to the Cabela's retail stores in Kansas City, Kansas, and Buda, Texas. Cabela's anticipates the store would be open by fall of 2007.

"They know that they have a lot of great customers in Connecticut and throughout the entire region, and excited about the possibility of a store in East Hartford," said Dennis Highby, President and CEO of Cabela's Inc. "Spending time outdoors hunting, fishing, hiking and camping is a big part of the history and culture of Connecticut and the northeast, and know that we will complement and benefit the community."

Highby also noted that East Hartford in particular is an ideal location for a Cabela's destination superstore. "They are excited about the possibility of bringing their world-famous retail experience to great customers who live in central Connecticut, as well as to the thousands of hunters, anglers and other visitors who travel through the area every year. East Hartford is a dynamic, fast-growing city and combines the best of New England tradition, history and culture with modern shopping and entertainment. They believe a Cabela's store will be the perfect fit for East Hartford and all of Connecticut."
