The Augusta location will feature a Core-Flex floor plan allowing products to be rotated seasonally, as well as a rugged outdoor look and feel. It will include innovative digital signage and the same quality products and customer service for which Cabela's is famous.
“Cabela’s is very excited about our two Georgia locations,” Millner said. “Georgia is full of outdoorsmen and women who have supported our catalog and website for years. The Augusta Outpost store will be a great start to bringing Georgia the full Cabela’s retail experience.”
Construction on the Missoula location, also a Cabela’s Outpost store, is scheduled to begin this fall. The company anticipates a summer 2014 opening. It will be Cabela’s third Montana store, joining the Billings location opened in 2009 and a Kalispell location scheduled to open this fall.
Cabela’s expects to employee approximately 90 full-time, part-time and seasonal employees, with most coming from Missoula and the surrounding area.
The store will be located on Brooks Street in the southeast quadrant of South Reserve Street and Highway 93, where the existing Kmart building will be razed as part of a growing retail development being called, “South Crossing.” Woodbury Corporation of Salt Lake City, Utah, is the developer of the project.
The Missoula location will feature a rugged, outdoor look and feel, offering a robust selection of gear and seasonal products assortments, as well as museum-quality wildlife displays and an indoor archery range.
“Missoula has a proud tradition of outdoor recreation and is full of sportsmen and women who live the Cabela’s lifestyle,” Millner said. “The support from our loyal customers in Billings, along with the growing excitement around our recent announcement to open a store in Kalispell, made it an easy decision to extend the Cabela’s retail footprint to Missoula.”
Construction on the 70,000-square-foot store is scheduled to begin this summer and Cabela’s anticipates a summer 2014 opening. It is expected to employee approximately 200 full-time, part-time and seasonal employees. Most will come from Barrie and the surrounding area.
