Cabela’s plans store opening in north Oklahoma City in fall of 2015.
Cabela’s Incorporated, the World’s Foremost Outfitter® of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, announced today plans to introduce the unique Cabela’s shopping experience to customers in Oklahoma City, Okla., and the surrounding area.
Construction on the 80,000-square-foot store – Cabela’s first Oklahoma location – is scheduled to begin later this year and the company anticipates a fall 2015 opening. The store will be located in the newly planned Chisholm Creek development near the John Kilpatrick Turnpike at N. Western Avenue.
“Cabela’s couldn’t be more excited to announce our first Oklahoma location,” said Tommy Millner, Cabela’s Chief Executive Officer. “Customers across Oklahoma have been asking us to bring a Cabela’s store to the state for years and we look forward to bringing them the extraordinary Cabela’s experience.”
The store will employ approximately 180 full-time and part-time employees, with most coming from Oklahoma City and the surrounding area. It will be built in Cabela’s next-generation layout, designed to surround customers in an outdoor-like experience with a large mountain replica and museum-quality wildlife displays.
In addition to thousands of quality outdoor products, the store will include an indoor archery range and archery tech room, deli, Gun Library, Bargain Cave and Fudge Shop. It also will include a full-service boat shop and a comprehensive selection of Wildlife and Land Management products, including tractors, attachments and implements.
Also today, Cabela’s announced plans to open stores in Huntsville, Ala., and Woodbury, N.Y. Currently, the company operates 56 stores across North America and has announced plans to open an additional 21 over the next two years.
