Cabela’s® Announces Plans For Greenville, S.C., Store

Stocks in this article: CAB

Cabela’s Incorporated (NYSE: CAB), the World’s Foremost Outfitter® of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, announced today plans to open a store in Greenville, S.C., bringing Cabela’s extraordinary retail experience to customers in Greenville and the surrounding area.

Cabela’s expects to open the store – its first South Carolina location – 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, Cheddar’s and other retailers and restaurants, with plans for additional expansion.

“South Carolinians are part of an exceptional outdoor tradition and share the Cabela’s lifestyle and values. We wanted to build a store in the Greenville area to recognize that,” said Cabela’s Chief Executive Officer Tommy Millner. “We are also excited about the opportunity to expand our retail footprint in the Southeast.”

The store is expected to employ approximately 235 full-time, part-time and seasonal employees, and most will come from Greenville and the surrounding area. Cabela’s typically attracts as staffers experienced outdoor recreationalists, who join the Cabela’s family of employees known for their passion for and knowledge of the outdoors as well as excellent customer service skills.

“We are excited that Cabela’s has chosen Greenville for its first South Carolina location,” said Greenville Mayor Knox White. “Cabela’s unique retail experience is a great fit for Greenville and will complement other unique retail offerings in Magnolia Park. We welcome Cabela’s and look forward to their opening.”

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 inside will feature the company’s next-generation layout, designed to surround customers in an outdoor experience, including museum-quality wildlife displays and trophy animal mounts displayed on a mountain. The store will also feature a Gun Library, Bargain Cave, Fudge Shop and indoor archery range. The start of construction is still to be determined.
