SIDNEY, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 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 four new markets in 2014 – Acworth, Ga.; Augusta, Ga.; Missoula, Mont.; and Barrie, Ontario, Canada.
Construction of the Barrie, Ontario, Canada 70,000-square-foot store is scheduled to begin this summer and Cabela’s anticipates a summer 2014 opening. It is expected to employ approximately 200 full-time, part-time and seasonal employees. Most will come from Barrie and the surrounding area.
The store will be located near the intersection of Highway 400 and Mapleview Drive in the Park Place Shopping Centre, which is being developed by North American/CentreCorp.
The store will be built in Cabela’s next-generation layout designed to surround customers in the outdoor experience. In addition to thousands of quality outdoor products, it will include a mountain replica featuring museum-quality wildlife displays, an indoor archery range, Gun Library, Bargain Cave, Deli and Fudge Shop.
“Thanks to the loyalty of our thousands of Canadian customers, and especially those across the province of Ontario, it was an easy decision to bring the Cabela’s retail experience to Barrie,” Millner said. “I can’t say enough about Canada. It’s a Cabela’s kind of place.”
Currently, Cabela’s operates 45 stores across North America with plans to open an additional 19 over the next two years.
