Cabela’s plans four new locations in 2013

Cabela's recently announced plans to open three next-generation stores and relocate its store in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 2013.

Construction is scheduled to begin on next-generation stores in Columbus, Ohio; Grandville, Mich.; and Louisville, Ky., during the summer, and Cabela’s expects to open each location in the spring of 2013.

Ranging from 80,000 to 88,000 square feet, the stores will be built in Cabela’s trademark style with an exterior of log construction, stonework, wood siding and metal roofing. Large glass storefronts will allow customers to view much of the interior as they approach the building.

Cabela’s next-generation layout is designed to maximize product assortment and availability while surrounding customers in the outdoor experience with wildlife and outdoor memorabilia displays, the company said.

The 80,000-square-foot Columbus store, Cabela’s first in Ohio, is expected to employ as many as 175 full- and part-time employees. The 88,000-square-foot Grandville store will be Cabela’s second in Michigan, joining the Dundee location.

The Louisville store, Cabela’s first in Kentucky, will be 88,000 square feet and is expected to employ about 200 full- and part-time employees.

“The loyalty of our online and catalog customers made this happen in all three regions,” Cabela CEO Tommy Millner said in a statement. “We couldn’t be more excited to bring the retail experience to Columbus, Grandville and Louisville, areas where people are passionate about the outdoors and embrace the Cabela’s lifestyle.”

The Winnipeg store will be moved from a 44,000-square-foot location in the Polo Park district to a new 80,000-square-foot structure. Construction is scheduled to begin this spring and Cabela’s expects the store to open in the spring of 2013.

Cabela’s currently operates 34 retail stores in the United States and Canada.
