Cabela's Incorporated will celebrate the official grand opening of its Anchorage, Alaska, store Thursday, April 10.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by Cabela's executives will begin at 10:45 a.m. and doors will open for business at 11 a.m. Opening day will kick off a weekend-long celebration featuring giveaways, special guests, events for the entire family and more.
The 100,000-square-foot store – the company's first in Alaska – is located on the south side of Anchorage near the intersection of Minnesota & C Street next to Target. It will feature thousands of outdoor products, museum-quality wildlife displays, a mountain replica, aquarium, indoor archery range, gun library, bargain cave, deli, fudge shop and more. Approximately 250 full-time, part-time and seasonal employees will staff the store.
And, although doors do not open until April 10, customers can get a head start on shopping beginning today.
Those who order eligible merchandise via www.cabelas.com between Feb. 7 and March 19 can have it shipped to the store – free of charge – by selecting “in-store pick-up” at checkout. The gear will then be delivered to the store and ready for pick-up April 10. This program, which will continue after the store opens, gives customers convenient access to all Cabela's products.
