Cabela's Incorporated announced today plans to bring the Cabela's retail experience to customers in Wichita, and the surrounding area.
Cabela's expects to open the Wichita store in early spring of 2012. The 80,000-square-foot store will be located in the Regency Lakes Shopping Center at 21st Street and Greenwich Road, and will be Cabela's second retail store in Kansas, joining the Kansas City location. Construction is expected to start in late July 2011.
"Kansans are no strangers to Cabela's or the outdoors," said Cabela's Chief Executive Officer Tommy Millner. "It's because of their loyalty to our brand and their passion for sports like hunting, fishing and camping that we're able to build another store in the Sunflower State."
Showcasing thousands of products, including hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, boating and wildlife-watching gear, as well as outdoor 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.
Cabela's typically attracts experienced outdoor recreationalists as employees, who join the Cabela's family of employees known for their excellent customer service skills and detailed knowledge of outdoor products.
The Regency Lakes Shopping Center also includes Super Target and World Market stores as well as a Hampton Inn & Suites, with more retailers expected to open stores this year.
