Local celebrities joined hundreds of anxious people waiting to set foot inside Wichita's newest outdoor and sporting goods store.

Cabela's, located near 21st and Greenwich road, opened for business at 11 a.m. Wednesday.

A bow and arrow ribbon cutting ceremony kicked off the opening day.

Dusty Cox said her family traveled more than three hours to be among the first to walk through the doors.

"This is our vacation," Cox said. "I think this is a blast, sitting outside and waiting for this to happen."

The store also features conservation wildlife displays, a 4,000 gallon aquarium, an archery range and a gun library.

Store hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday.
