Cabela’s is Coming to Grand Rapids

WZZM

Cabela’s Incorporated announced this morning that a new 88,000 square-foot store is coming to the Grand Rapids area.  Actually, our news partner WZZM 13 says Cabela’s will build their new store at the east end of the Rivertown Mall corridor at 44th and Ivanrest.

This is great news for the area since we all thought that there might be one going up in Walker.  It seemed at the time that the Walker people played a little “hard ball,” and the deal fell through.  Whatever happened here, it was a winner.

This will be the second Cabela’s in Michigan.  The other one is in Dundee.

Cabela’s plans to start construction this summer and the store will be completed in the spring of 2013.  They’re expected to employ approximately 200 full- and part-time employees and will also feature a Boat Shop, Gun Library, Bargain Cave and Fudge Shop.

Cabela’s CEO, Tommy Millner said, “because of the many great customers we have in the Grandville/Grand Rapids area, we have been interested in building a store there for years.  Michiganders are dedicated outdoorspeople who live the Cabela’s lifestyle and so many of them are loyal customers through our catalogs, website and Dundee store, we wanted to reward them with a Cabela’s store of their own.”
