Cabela's Outdoor Store Coming to Southridge in 2012

FromPress Release
CHARLESTON, WV (HNN) - West Virginia will soon have its second Cabela’s. The company announced that it will be constructing an 80,000 square foot store in the Southridge Centre, just off US Highway 119 near Charleston. The company’s other Mountain State store is in Wheeling.

Cabela’s Incorporated , the World’s Foremost Outfitter of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, hopes to have the Charleston location open by the Summer of 2012. It will join Walmart, Home Depot, Sam’s , Marquee Cinemas, Triple A, and restaurants.

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 displayed on a mountain with a built-in aquarium. The store will also feature a Gun Library, Bargain Cave and Fudge Shop. Construction is expected to start in early 2012.

“West Virginians are dedicated outdoors people and loyal Cabela’s customers,” said Cabela’s Chief Executive Officer Tommy Millner in a press release. “People throughout the state have been Cabela’s customers for decades and it’s because of their passion for outdoor recreation that we’re able to make our goods and services even more accessible to the area’s hunters, anglers and campers.”
