CABELA’S has officially announced its plans to relocate its Winnipeg store to a new 70,000-square-foot location.

As reported last week in the Free Press, the new store will be at Sterling Lyon Parkway and Kenaston Boulevard as part of a new retail development that will include IKEA and other retailers.

Construction is to begin this summer and the company expects the store to open in spring 2013.

Cabela’s will create up to an additional 110 full- and part-time positions by relocating the Winnipeg store.

Currently, the store on Ellice Avenue near Polo Park has about 100 full- and part-time employees. Cabela’s expects the new location to employ up to 210 people full- and part-time.

“This location is better situated and better sized to serve the market area, which abounds with thousands of loyal Cabela’s customers,” Cabela’s CEO, Tommy Millner, said in a statement.

Edmonton has the only other Cabela’s store in Canada. The company also plans to open a store in Saskatoon this spring.

Cabela’s Canadian headquarters is in Winnipeg.
