Cabela’s Inc. (NYSE: CAB) will open a 70,000-square-foot store in McDonough, Ga., in fall 2017.
The Sidney, Neb.-based hunting, fishing and outdoor gear retailer said its fourth Georgia store will be off Exit 222 of Interstate 75 near the intersection of Jodeco in the newly proposed Jodeco Atlanta South development in Henry County. The store will employ 130 people.
The McDonough store is designed around a new concept that is more cost effective, Cabela’s said. It will have an immersive outdoor environment including a 360 degree mountain and taxidermy feature, dozens of museum-quality taxidermy mounts, vintage outdoor photos and memorabilia with a regionally specific theme.
It also will include an archery and firearm tech room, indoor archery range and Bargain Cave, along with thousands of outdoor products displayed using Cabela’s brand new floor plan that dedicates more square footage of floor space to the company’s core areas in hunting, fishing, camping and recreational shooting.
Emil Gullia, Monetha Cobb and Sterling Hale with Franklin Street of Atlanta represented Cabela’s in the deal.
Cabela’s other Georgia stores are in Augusta, Acworth and Fort Oglethorpe.
