I left this news release unedited for your enjoyment. :mrgreen:

Cabela’s Announces Plans for Louisville, Ky., Store
88,000-square-foot Store to Open in Spring of 2013

SIDNEY, Neb. (Feb. 16, 2012) – Cabela’s Incorporated, the World’s Foremost Outfitter of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, announced today plans to open a store in Louisville, Ky., bringing the unique Cabela’s retail experience to customers in Louisville and the surrounding area.

Construction is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2012 and Cabela’s expects to open the store in the spring of 2013. The 88,000-square-foot facility will be located in the Old Brownsboro Crossing development at the intersections of Interstates 265 and 71. It will be Cabela’s first store in Kentucky.

The store will be built in Cabela’s trademark style with an exterior of 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 interior will be built in Cabela’s next-generation layout, designed to surround customers in an outdoor-like experience with museum-quality wildlife and outdoor memorabilia displays. The store will feature a Boat Shop, Gun Library, Fudge Shop, Bargain Cave and a wide range of outdoor products. It also will offer an In-Store Pickup Program, allowing customers to order any Cabela’s merchandise delivered to any Cabela’s store free of charge.

“Because we have so many loyal customers in the Bluegrass State, we’ve had our eye on Kentucky for a long time,” said Cabela’s Chief Executive Officer Tommy Millner. “There are many Kentuckians who share our passion for the outdoors and who live the Cabela’s lifestyle. We are excited to get the doors open.”

The store is expected to employ approximately 200 full- and part-time employees. Most will come from Louisville and the surrounding area. Cabela’s typically attracts experienced outdoor recreationalists who have a passion for outdoor sports and an aptitude for customer service, creating a family of employees known for their passion for and knowledge of the outdoors.


Cabela’s plans to open stores in Wichita, Kan.; Tulalip, Wash.; Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada; Charleston, W.Va.; Rogers, Ark.; and Union Gap, Wash., in 2012. Cabela’s also plans to open stores in Columbus, Ohio, and Grandville, Mich., in 2013.

Cabela’s stores showcase thousands of products, including hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, boating and wildlife-watching gear, as well as clothing and outdoor-themed gifts and furnishings. Cabela’s is famous for its strong brand and world-renowned reputation for delivering quality merchandise, value and legendary customer service.

The Old Brownsboro Crossing development is near Summit Lifestyle Center and also includes Costco and Lowe’s, as well as restaurants and medical offices.

A place where you check out guns, to be returned in 3 weeks or you get fined 20 cents a day?

I like how that's listed right before Fudge Shop.

The "Gun Library" is a separate room where they sell old/valuable/collectable guns. I've been in the one in Minnesota and there is some amazing history in there.

Facts? No... just being silly. Since the word "library" inherently involves lending rather than selling, I imagined a place where you could browse and borrow firearms and that made me laugh. Carry on.

Made me laugh, too. :lol:

I understand Cabela's is seriously into the quest for "trophy" animals, serious big-game hunters, and such. Not my cup of tea, but that's why they make both Escalades and Yarises, I guess.

Didn't know there was a hunting season for Escalades and Yarises'. What calibre is appropriate?

For Escalades, I think it's just a sticky-back poster to slap on the windshield that reads "This machine funds terrorists."

100% agree...I've never been particularly impressed with B.P.S. when it comes to anything outside their core market.
