SIDNEY, Neb. (Dec. 10, 2014) (PRWEB) December 10, 2014
Cabela’s Incorporated (NYSE:CAB), the World’s Foremost Outfitter® of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, announced today plans to bring Cabela’s unique retail experience and legendary customer service to Farmington, Utah, and the greater Salt Lake City area.
Construction is scheduled to begin in 2015, and Cabela’s anticipates a spring 2016 opening for the 72,000-square-foot store. It will be located in the newly planned Park Lane Commons development adjacent to Station Park on the west side of Interstate 15 near the intersection of Station Parkway and Park Lane.
Cabela’s expects to employ approximately 175 full-time, part-time and seasonal employees at the store, most of whom will come from Farmington and the surrounding area.
The store will become Cabela’s second retail location in Utah, joining the 150,000-square-foot Lehi store opened in 2005. Additionally, Cabela’s is constructing a new 600,000-square-foot distribution center in Tooele that is expected to begin full operations in summer 2015.
“Utah is a great place for the outdoors and for Cabela’s,” said Tommy Millner, Cabela’s Chief Executive Officer. “We have a wonderful store in Lehi and are thrilled to be adding a second store location and state-of-the art distribution center to better serve our loyal customers.”
The store will be built in Cabela’s new-format layout, designed to surround customers in an outdoor-like experience with log construction, stonework, wood siding, a large mountain replica, an aquarium and dozens of museum-quality wildlife displays.
In addition to thousands of quality outdoor products, the store will include an indoor archery range and archery tech room, Gun Library, Bargain Cave, deli and fudge shop. Additionally, the store’s staff will host educational seminars and demonstrations, offering tips and insight on outdoor products and activities.
Cabela’s currently operates 64 stores across North America and has announced plans to open an additional 20 locations over the next three years. Visit http://www.cabelas.com/stores to find Cabela’s locations.
