SYDNEY, Neb. — Cabela's is marking its entry in Arkansas with plans for a 100,000-sq.-ft. store in Rogers. The store is scheduled to open in the summer of 2012. The retailer also has also announced plans to build stores in Wichita, Kan., and Tulalip, Wash., as well as Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, all expected to open in 2012.
The building’s exterior will reflect Cabela’s traditional store model with log construction, stonework, wood siding and metal roofing. A large glass storefront will allow customers to view much of the store’s interior as they approach the building.
The inside will highlight the company’s next-generation layout, which is designed to immerse customers in the outdoor experience and includes conservation-themed wildlife displays and trophy animal mounts displayed on a mountain with a built-in aquarium.
Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, Cabela’s opened stores in Allen, Texas, April 14 and Springfield, Ore., May 4. In mid-August, the company will open a store in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
