Cabela’s announced Tuesday that it will open a store in Wichita, Kan., in the 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.
Headquartered in Sidney, Neb., Cabela’s has no stores in Oklahoma.
According to a news release from Cabela’s, the building’s exterior will reflect Cabela’s traditional store model with 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 inside will highlight the company’s next-generation layout, which is designed to immerse customers in the outdoor experience and includes conservation-themed wildlife displays and trophy animal mounts, the news release stated.
The store will also feature a Gun Library and Bargain Cave. Construction is expected to start in late July 2011.
Cabela’s is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
