Cabela’s Announces May 5 Opening At Springfield

Cabela’s has announced that their brand-new store in Springfield — the first in Oregon — will open Thursday, May 5, 2011, at 4 p.m.

Located on the sight of a former furniture store at 2800 Gateway Street, company officials say the building has “undergone a dramatic renovation to reflect Cabela’s traditional outdoor theme inside and out. Museum-quality wildlife displays, historic memorabilia, trophy animal mounts will be featured throughout” the 58,000-square-foot facility.

More than 200 employees have been hired to stock and staff the store with products the Sydney, Nebraska-based firm says have been “chosen specifically for the Pacific Northwest outdoor enthusiast.”

Shoppers will also find a “gun library, fly fishing shop, bargain cave” and other sections.

The outlet is being managed by Bob Fabbri, described as an “avid hunter of high country mule deer” who “also enjoys outdoor photography and horseback riding.”

It will be open 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m to 7 p.m. on Sunday.

Cabela’s also has 32 stores across the Lower 48 and southern Canada, including outlets in Lacey, Wash., and Post Falls and Boise, Idaho, plans to open five more locations, including Springfield, soon. Among the largest is a 235,000-square-foot facility in Texas.

It also operates a popular catalog business.

Last month the company reported increased fourth-quarters sales in late 2010 vs. the same period in 2009.
