Cabela's in Garner opening on April 16!

Posted February 18, 2015



If you have been anxiously awaiting the opening of the new Cabela's store in Garner, I have great news for you. Cabela's has announced that the 105,000-square-foot store will be opening on Thursday, April 16th!

The new 105,000-square-foot store is located at 201 Cabela Drive near the intersection of Interstate 40 and U.S. Highway 70. It is right across from the White Oak Shopping Center on Hwy. 70.

Cabela's is kicking off the grand opening with a very unique ribbon-cutting ceremony at 9:45 am. At the end of the ceremony, the ribbon will be cut by an arrow shot from a bow!

The store will open for business at 10 am after the ribbon cutting.

This is the first Cabela's North Carolina location and they are planning a weekend-long celebration including special appearances, family events, giveaways and more. Once the schedule of events is finalized, I'll post them here on the blog and you will be able to find them on their website.

According to their press release, "the store will employ approximately 225 full-time, part-time and seasonal employees, most coming from Garner and the surrounding area.   The store is designed to surround customers in a fun, outdoor-like experience with log construction, stonework, a large mountain replica, aquarium, indoor archery range and dozens of museum-quality wildlife displays. Also, it will include a deli, fudge shop, boat shop, Gun Library and Bargain Cave."

I had no idea this store would have a mountain, aquarium, indoor archery range, deli and fudge shop. I am looking forward to going, with or without the kids!

The store’s staff will offer educational seminars and demonstrations throughout the year providing tips and insight on outdoor products and activities.

If you are new to Cabela’s, they offer hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, boating and wildlife-watching gear, as well as clothing and outdoor-themed gifts and furnishings.

Are you (or your spouse) excited about the new Cabela's?

    I am always excited to hear about a new deli! ;) All joking aside, I am very happy for new employment opportunities for the folks in the area. My niece had good things to say about Cabela's, so it should be fun to look around and see what they have to offer.

    My husband is from Michigan and we have gone to Cabela's up there. It is a really nice store and the wildlife displays are so neat to see. So I'm looking forward to seeing it!
