Lubbock will soon be home to a new Cabela's store.
The 42,000-square-foot hunting and fishing outlet will be located in a
proposed shopping center at West Loop 289 and 34th Street. Construction is
scheduled to begin this fall and will be completed by summer 2014.
The store is looking to hire around 90 part-time, full-time and seasonal employees, bringing new jobs to Lubbock.
Cabela's Outpost stores are generally located in markets of less than 250,000 people. The Lubbock location will offer a large selection of gear and seasonal products, as well as museum-quality wildlife displays and an indoor archery range.
"Outdoorsmen and women across the Lone Star State continue to show tremendous support to Cabela's and live our kind of lifestyle, which makes this a natural fit," said Tommy Millner, Cabela's Chief Executive Officer. "Lubbock is ideally suited for the unique Cabela's Outpost store concept."
