SIDNEY, Neb. (April 25, 2013) – Cabela’s Incorporated (NYSE:CAB), the World’s Foremost Outfitter® of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, announced today plans to bring the extraordinary Cabela’s retail experience to customers in the north Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, area.
Construction is scheduled to begin this summer and Cabela’s plans to open the store in the spring of 2014. The 50,000-square-foot store will be located in the Manning Town Centre located on Manning Drive in north Edmonton. It will be Cabela’s second store in the Edmonton area, joining the 70,000-square-foot location opened in 2011.
The store is expected to employ approximately 150 full-time, part-time and seasonal employees. Most will come from Edmonton and the surrounding area.
“We’ve had great success in Edmonton thanks to the many outdoorsmen and women across the region,” said Cabela’s Chief Executive Officer Tommy Millner. “This store will provide a second convenient location for our loyal customers and expands Cabela’s footprint in an area where outdoor recreation is placed at a premium.”
The store will be built in Cabela’s next-generation Canada layout, designed to surround customers in an outdoor-like experience with museum-quality wildlife displays. In addition to thousands of quality outdoor products, the store will include a large mountain replica, Bargain Cave, Indoor Archery Range and Fudge Shop.
Currently, Cabela’s operates 44 stores across North America, including three in Canada – Winnipeg, Manitoba; the existing Edmonton location; and Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The company has announced plans to open an additional 13 stores in 2013 and 2014, including a Regina, Saskatchewan, location this fall.
Also today, Cabela’s announced plans to open a 100,000-square-foot store in Tualatin, Ore, in fall 2014.
Cabela’s stores showcase thousands of products, including hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, boating and wildlife-watching gear, as well as clothing and outdoor-themed gifts and furnishings.
