By this time next year, construction should be well under way on a new 100,000-square-foot Cabela’s store in Anchorage, the first in Alaska and most northerly outlet for the Nebraska-based company.
The announcement was made today in a press release. The store will be located a couple miles southwest of the airport and employ 200 part- and full-time staffers.
The store will feature the trademark exposed timber-and-stone finishes as well as a “next-generation layout, designed to surround customers in an outdoor experience, including conservation-themed wildlife displays and trophy animal mounts displayed on a mountain.”
There will also be the traditional huge aquarium, Gun Library, Bargain Cave and Fudge Shop.
A spokesman said Cabela’s loves Alaska, has great customers there and has wanted to build an outlet there.
