World's Foremost Outfitter of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, Cabela's Incorporated announced it is working to bring a much-anticipated Cabela's retail store to the company's loyal customers in Montreal, Quebec, and the surrounding region.
Although planning and discussions are in early stages, Cabela's expects to open the Montreal retail showroom as early as late fall 2007 or spring 2008.
The large-format retail store, located in the Lac Mirabel mixed-use project, will be developed by Connecticut-based Gordon Holdings Group and Rubin Stahl, and would be Cabela's first store built outside the United States.
Features of the Cabela's Montreal store would include:
-- A huge mountain replica, the centerpiece of the store's open showroom, including trophy animals in re-creations of their distinct habitats.
Similar mountains, each called Conservation Mountain, have been built in other Cabela's stores as monuments to wildlife and salutes to the sportsmen and women who support wildlife conservation.
-- A gigantic freshwater aquarium stocked with fish native to the area.
-- Museum-quality representations of many wild-game species.
-- World-class Gun Library, providing gun collectors and aficionados the opportunity to browse through a collection of examples of the gun-making art.
-- Indoor archery range where archers can test and fine-tune their equipment.
-- Bargain Cave, featuring discount prices on returned and discontinued merchandise.
