National Outdoor Retailer Planning Bowling Green Store
A national retailer for hunting, fishing, and outdoor gear will open a store in Bowling Green in 2014. Cabela's will build a 42,000-square-foot store, making it the second in Kentucky, joining one in Louisville.
Communications Specialist Wes Remmer told WKU Public Radio that the Cabela’s Outpost store will be among the company's smallest.
“The Outposts are about 40,000 square feet, whereas, some of our other retail locations can range up to 250,000 square feet," explains Remmer. "The Outposts are a way to get into those smaller markets.”
Cabela’s will open the Bowling Green store next fall and employ about 90 full-time, part-time, and seasonal workers.
Cabela's Outpost will be located at the intersection of Scottsville Road and Ken Bale Boulevard.
