Updated: Cabela’s Plans to Open Store in Woodbury

The store is set to open in Tamarack Village.

Updated (01/16/13): A new Cabela’s in Woodbury would be built near Tamarack Village, not within it, according to a Pioneer Press story.

Cabela’s, a national outdoor-goods retailer, announced Tuesday its plan to build a new store in Woodbury.

The release from the company said it would open at Tamarack Village, but the president of the company that owns Tamarack told the Pioneer Press that Cabela’s has been looking at buying property at the southwest corner of Radio Drive and Interstate 94, north of the shopping area.

Cabela’s plans to open the 85,000-square-foot store in the fall of 2014, with construction set to begin this fall.

Cabela's has a loyal following in Minnesota, said Wes Remmer, Cabela's spokesman, and Woodbury was a "natural fit."

"Minnesota fits the bill—it's a Cabela's kind of place," he said.

“Minnesota offers a tremendous array of outdoor pursuits and that has been highlighted by the commitment and loyalty of Cabela’s customers across the state,” CEO Tommy Millner said in a release. “Cabela’s has had remarkable success in the East Grand Forks, Owatonna and Rogers locations and we expect similar results in Woodbury.”

The store will open in the fall of 2014.

The Woodbury location will be Cabela’s fourth store in Minnesota, and construction on the 85,000-square-foot store is expected to start in the fall of 2013, said Wes Remmer, Cabela's spokesman.

"We're excited to get going and give our customers the Cabela's experience," he said.

Cabela's has a loyal following in Minnesota, Remmer said, and Woodbury was a "natural fit."

"Minnesota fits the bill—it's a Cabela's kind of place," he said.

Cabela’s expects to hire 185 full- and part-time workers, according to the release.

The store offers thousands of products, including hunting, fishing, camping and boating gear, among other items.

The building’s exterior will have the typical Cabela’s look: log construction, stonework, wood siding and metal roofing, the release says.

The inside will feature the retailer’s “next-generation layout, designed to surround customers in an outdoor experience, including dynamic wildlife displays and trophy animal mounts displayed on a mountain. The store will also feature a Boat Shop, Gun Library, aquarium, Bargain Cave and Fudge Shop,” according to the release.

The trophy animals will be local to Minnesota, Remmer said.
