Cabela’s to enter New York and Massachusetts
Sidney, Neb. -- Cabela’s Inc. continues to expand East with plans to open its stores in the states of New York and Massachusetts.
The hunting, fishing, camping and related outdoor merchandise retailer will open an 88,000-sq.-ft. store in the Buffalo suburb of Cheektowaga, N.Y., in fall 2014, and a similarly sized one in the Boston suburb of Berlin, in spring 2015. The exteriors of both locations will reflect Cabela’s signature log construction, stonework, wood siding, metal roofing and a large glass storefront.
In addition, the retailer announced it will expand its newer, smaller-footprint store, Cabela’s Outpost, to Lubbock, Texas. Construction of the 42,000-sq.-ft. store is scheduled to begin this fall with a summer 2014 opening.
Cabela’s Outpost stores are generally located in markets of less than 250,000 people. They are designed for efficiency, flexibility and convenience, offering customers access to all Cabela’s merchandise via online order kiosks and an in-store pickup program.
Currently, Cabela’s operates 44 stores across North America. The company has now announced plans to open 16 locations over the next two years.
