SIDNEY, Neb. (March 4, 2015) (PRWEB) March 04, 2015
Cabela’s Incorporated (NYSE:CAB), the World’s Foremost Outfitter® of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, announced today plans to bring the company’s unique retail experience and legendary customer service to Centerville, Ohio, and the greater Dayton area.
Construction on the 70,000-square-foot store is scheduled to begin in 2015, and Cabela’s anticipates a spring 2016 opening. It will be located in the Cornerstone at Centerville development off Exit 7 of Interstate 675 near Wilmington Pike. Oberer Development Company is the developer.
“Ohio has phenomenal outdoor resources and recreational opportunities for outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen,” said Tommy Millner, Cabela’s Chief Executive Officer. “Cabela’s is thrilled to continue our expansion in the Buckeye State. Our new Centerville location will allow us to better serve hunting, fishing, camping and outdoor enthusiasts, including the thousands of loyal Cabela’s customers in the area, while also introducing new customers to the unique Cabela’s retail experience.”
Cabela’s expects to employ approximately 160 full-time, part-time and seasonal employees at the store, most of whom will come from Centerville and the surrounding area. Upon opening, it will become Cabela’s third retail location in Ohio, joining the 80,000-square-foot Columbus store opened in 2013 and the 80,000-square-foot West Chester location schedule to open this fall.
The store will be built in Cabela’s new-format layout, designed to offer customers an enjoyable, 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 21 locations over the next three years. Visit http://www.cabelas.com/stores for more information.
