Cabela’s Incorporated, the World’s Foremost Outfitter of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, announced today plans to open a 42,000-square-foot Cabela’s Outpost store in Waco, Texas.
Construction is scheduled to begin this spring and doors are expected to open this fall. It will be the company’s fourth store in Texas, joining the Fort Worth, Buda and Allen locations.
“Texas is full of outdoorsmen and women who live the Cabela’s lifestyle – people who share our enthusiasm for outdoor adventure – so this is a marvelous fit,” said Tommy Millner, Cabela’s Chief Executive Officer. “Cabela’s has enjoyed tremendous success in Fort Worth, Buda and Allen thanks to the support of our many loyal customers across the state. We are excited to bring the Cabela’s Outpost store concept to Waco.”
Cabela’s Outpost stores offer the same quality products and customer service for which Cabela’s is famous, and are designed for efficiency, flexibility and convenience at approximately 40,000-square-feet. They feature seasonal product assortments and a rugged, outdoor look and theme, including trophy wildlife displays.
Waco customers will have access to Cabela’s merchandise via online order kiosks located throughout the store, as well as free shipping with an In-Store Pickup program. In-Store Pickup allows customers to order Cabela’s gear ahead of time and pick it up at their convenience at the store of their choice.
The store is expected to employ approximately 100 full-time, part-time and seasonal employees, most coming from Waco and the surrounding area.
It will be located at Interstate 35 and Texas Loop 340 in the Central Texas Marketplace, which includes Kohl’s, Belk, Ross Dress For Less, Best Buy, Office Depot, Bed Bath & Beyond and Marshalls, among other businesses.
Cabela’s stores showcase thousands of products, including hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, boating and wildlife-watching gear, as well as clothing and outdoor-themed gifts and furnishings. The company is famous for its strong brand and world-renowned reputation for delivering quality merchandise, value and legendary customer service.
Currently, Cabela’s operates 41 stores across the United States and Canada with plans to open an additional 14 by the end of 2014. The company opened its first Cabela’s Outpost store in Union Gap, Wash., in October 2012. It also opened a Cabela’s Outpost store in Saginaw, Mich., today.
