Cabelas Incorporated announced plans to open a store in Greenville, SC and Woodbury, MN in 2014. Cabelas expects to open the store in Woodbury, which is in the Twin Cities metropolitan area, in fall 2014.
The 85,000-square-foot store will be located in the Tamarack Village Shopping Center. It will be Cabelas fourth store in Minnesota, following the East Grand Forks, Owatonna and Rogers locations. Construction is expected to start in fall 2013. The store is expected to employ up to 185 full- and part-time employees, and most will come from Woodbury and the surrounding area.
Minnesota offers a tremendous array of outdoor pursuits and that has been highlighted by the commitment and loyalty of Cabelas customers across the state, said Cabelas Chief Executive Officer Tommy Millner. Cabelas has had remarkable success in the East Grand Forks, Owatonna and Rogers locations and we expect similar results in Woodbury.
The inside will feature the companys next-generation layout, designed to surround customers in an outdoor experience, including dynamic wildlife displays and trophy animal mounts displayed on a mountain. The store will also feature a Boat Shop, Gun Library, aquarium, Bargain Cave and Fudge Shop. The Tamarack Village Shopping Center also includes Home Depot, JC Penney, Dicks Sporting Goods, Toys R Us, JoAnn Fabric and Cub Foods.
Also today, Cabelas announced plans to build its first location in South Carolina in Greenville in Spring 2014.
The 100,000-square-foot store will be located in Magnolia Park, a newly redeveloped shopping center located at the junction of Interstates-385 and -85 on Woodruff Road. Magnolia Park, being developed by Menin Development, already includes Costco, Regal Cinemas, Rooms to Go, Cheddars and other retailers and restaurants, with plans for additional expansion. The store is expected to employ 235 people.
