Cabela’s Incorporated announced plans to bring a new Cabela’s retail store to Fort Oglethorpe, Ga., serving the greater Chattanooga, Tenn., area.
Construction is scheduled to begin later this year and Cabela’s projects a fall 2015 opening. The 70,000-square-foot store will be located in Catoosa County near the intersection of Interstate 75 and State Route 146 in a development currently anchored by Costco.
The new outdoor store intensifies what is becoming some stiff competition
between numerous outdoor-oriented stores in the Chattanooga area.
This will be Cabela’s third Georgia store. Cabela’s expects to employ about 140 full-time and part-time employees.
“This store will allow us to better serve the thousands of outdoorsmen and women who live the Cabela’s lifestyle across the region,” Millner said. “We look forward to serving the area for years to come.”
The building’s exterior will reflect Cabela’s popular 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 interior will include a mountain replica featuring North American game animals recreated in their natural habitat, an aquarium, bargain cave, indoor archery range, deli and more, in addition to thousands of quality outdoor products.
