Cabela's adding three new stores

SIDNEY, Neb. (June 4, 2014) – Cabela's Incorporated (NYSE:CAB), the World's Foremost Outfitter® of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, announced today plans to introduce the unique Cabela's retail experience to three new markets – Huntsville, Ala.; Oklahoma City, Okla.; and Woodbury, N.Y.

Construction on the 80,000-square-foot store in Huntsville is scheduled to begin this fall and Cabela's anticipates a fall 2015 opening. It is expected to employ approximately 180 full-time and part-time employees, most from Huntsville and the surrounding area.

The store – Cabela's first Alabama location – will be located in the newly planned Parkside Town Centre development near the intersection of Interstate 565 and 255 at Governors West Road.

"As we continue to expand our retail footprint in the Southeast, Cabela's knew we needed a store in Alabama," said Tommy Millner, Cabela's Chief Executive Officer. "With such a remarkable outdoor heritage and lifestyle, Alabama certainly is a Cabela's kind of place."

The store 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.



Construction on the 80,000-square-foot store in Oklahoma City, 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," Millner said. "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.

The building will be built in Cabela's next-generation layout and feature a mountain replica, museum-quality wildlife displays, indoor archery range and archery teach room, deli, Gun Library, Fudge Shop and Bargain Cave. Additionally, it will offer a full-service boat shop and a comprehensive selection of Wildlife and Land Management products, including tractors, attachments and implements.


Construction on the 90,000-square-foot store in Woodbury is scheduled to begin in spring 2015 and Cabela's expects to open the location in spring 2016. It will be Cabela's second store in New York, joining the 88,000-square-foot Cheektowaga location scheduled to open this fall.

The store is expected to employ approximately 170 full-time and part-time employees, most from Woodbury and the surrounding area. It will be located adjacent to the Woodbury Common Premium Outlets near the intersection of Highway 6 and 17 at Averill Avenue.

"Woodbury will be a great location for Cabela's and our customers in the Northeast," Millner said. "We're thrilled to announce a second store in New York and can't wait to serve our customers in the 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 and include a large mountain replica, wildlife displays, indoor archery range and archery tech room, deli, Gun Library, Bargain Cave and Fudge Shop.

Currently, the company operates 56 stores across North America and has announced plans to open an additional 21 over the next two years.
