Sidney, Neb. -- Cabela’s Inc. announced today plans for two new stores, including its first-ever locations in Virginia and Delaware. Construction is expected to begin on the new locations in 2013, with the stores expected to open in 2014.

The stores will be built in Cabela’s trademark style with an exterior of log construction, stonework, wood siding and metal roofing.
