Cabela’s®, the World’s Foremost Outfitter of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, will open its first Colorado retail store in Grand Junction on Thursday, May 20, 2010, at 4 p.m.
The 70,000-square-foot, next-generation Cabela’s store will anchor Mesa Mall, located at the intersection of 24 Road and U.S. Highway 6 and 50 in Grand Junction. Mesa Mall offers more than 880,000 square feet of retail shopping, making it the premier shopping destination on Colorado’s Western Slope.
“Colorado is known for its rich tradition of outdoor participation,” said Tommy Millner, Cabela’s Chief Executive Officer. “Hunting, fishing, camping and outdoor activities are a way of life for those on the Western Slope and throughout the state. We’re thrilled Grand Junction will be Cabela’s first location in Colorado.”
Cabela’s Grand Junction store will be stocked with products specifically selected for Colorado outdoor enthusiasts and for people traveling to the region. Plus, the in-store Cabelas.Com Lodge will give customers access to virtually every product in Cabela’s inventory. Products ordered through the Cabelas.Com Lodge can be picked up at the store, saving the customer home-shipping charges.
