Cabela's in Charleston
July 24, 2012 ·
Outdoor gear retailer Cabela’s will open its new Charleston store on August 9. The store is stocked and ready to open in the Southridge Shopping Center off Corridor G.
It’s the second one in West Virginia
for the outfitter. A store opened in
Wheeling eight years ago.
This store is
smaller than that one but still contains the retailer’s trademark outdoor
products - fishing and camping gear, clothing, guns, bows and arrows.
Spokesman Wes Remmer says southern West
Virginia is a perfect spot for this store.
“We look for places across the country where we know we have
we proven customer base,” Remmer explains.
“We’re able to track our customers through catalog sales and the
Internet. And we want to build in hot spots and Charleston
fit the bill. Beyond that there are a
ton of outdoor opportunities right here in Charleston
and around the area. We’ve had
tremendous success with the Wheeling
store. We love West
There’s the mountain of stuffed animals in the center of the
store and all around the walls - 243 of
them. It employs 175 people full time.
