72,000-square-foot store projected to open in fall 2015
Cabela’s Incorporated, the World’s Foremost Outfitter® of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, announced today plans to bring the unique Cabela’s experience to League City, Texas, and the greater Houston area.
The 72,000-square-foot store will anchor a new retail development at the intersection of Interstate 45 and Big League Dreams Parkway near Kohl’s, HEB Grocery and Big League Dreams Sports Park. Pinnacle Alliance Fund Inc. is managing the development.
Cabela’s expects construction on the store to begin later this year and anticipates a fall 2015 opening. It will be Cabela’s sixth location in Texas, joining stores in Fort Worth, Buda, Allen, Waco and Lubbock.
“Texans love the outdoors and have exhibited a strong passion for Cabela’s,” said Tommy Millner, Cabela’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our existing stores in the Lone Star State have a remarkably loyal customer base, and we expect the same for the League City location. Texas truly is a great place for the outdoors and for Cabela’s.”
Cabela’s expects to hire approximately 170 full-time and part-time employees, most of whom will come from League City and the surrounding area. The building’s exterior will reflect Cabela’s popular store model with log construction, stonework, wood siding and metal roofing. A large glass storefront will allow customers to view much of the store’s interior as they approach the building.
The interior will be built in Cabela’s next-generation layout, designed to surround customers in an outdoor-like experience with a large mountain replica, museum-quality wildlife displays and an aquarium. 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 will host educational seminars and demonstrations throughout the year, offering tips and insight on outdoor products and activities.
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.
The company is famous for its strong brand and world-renowned reputation for delivering quality merchandise, value and legendary customer service.
Also today, Cabela’s announced plans to open a new location in Lexington, Ky. Cabela’s currently operates 64 stores across North America and has announced plans to open an additional 17 locations during the next two years.
