Cabela’s plans to build store in Tulalip

OK guys, next year we’ll have a reason to go along with our significant others to the Seattle Premium Outlets near Marysville. Cabela’s Inc. and the Tulalip Tribes today announced the sports outfitter will build a store in Tulalip.

Cabela’s expects to open the 110,000-square-foot store within Quil Ceda Village on the Tulalip Tribes reservation along Interstate 5. This will be the second Cabela’s store in Washington, joining the Lacey location. That store, at 185,000 square feet, opened in 2007

The company currently operates 33 stores throughout the United States and Canada.

I find it interesting Cabela’s is willing to build another location so close to its Lacey store. Looking at the map of other stores, will be among the closest in the chain.

“Washington is rich with outdoor recreation opportunities, and many people in this area are longtime Cabela’s catalog and Internet customers,” Cabela’s Chief Executive Officer Tommy Millner said in a news release. “So we’re excited to open another store in the Evergreen State, making our services even more accessible to its hunters, anglers and outdoor enthusiasts.”

Cabela’s is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. It opened a store in Springfield, Ore. on May 4. Later this summer, the company will open a store in Edmonton, Alberta.
