Cabela’s Incorporated has announced it will be bringing a new retail outlet to North Georgia.
Construction on the approximately 100,000-square-foot store in Acworth, just north of Atlanta, is scheduled to begin this fall, with plans to open the store in the fall of 2014. It will be located in the Cherokee Village development in the northeast quadrant of I-75 and Highway 92.
The company also announced plans to open a 42,000-square-foot Cabela’s Outpost store in Augusta, Ga., set to open in the spring of 2014.
"We are thrilled to bring Cabela’s to a state with such a great outdoor tradition," said Tommy Millner, Cabela’s chief executive officer. "Georgia, especially the Acworth area, is full of sportsmen and women who share Cabela’s enthusiasm for outdoor recreation. It is time to serve their needs with an extraordinary Cabela’s store."
The Acworth store is expected to employ approximately 200 full-time, part-time and seasonal employees.
They say the store will surround customers in an outdoor-like experience with museum-quality wildlife displays. In addition to thousands of quality outdoor products, the store will include a large mountain replica, a gun library, bargain cave, boat shop, indoor archery range, deli and fudge shop.
Currently, Cabela’s operates 45 stores across the United States and Canada. The company has announced plans to open an additional 19 stores over the next two years.
