Local fans of outdoor gear and goods rejoice! Cabela's has announced plans to open a retail outlet in Avon, OH.
Construction on the new 81,000-square-foot digs, which will be located off exit 153 of I- 90 near Chester Road, will commence later this year and may be completed as early as fall of 2016.
“Cabela’s has been interested in northern Ohio and the greater Cleveland area for some time now, and we’re absolutely thrilled to announce this location in Avon," Tommy Millner, Cabela’s Chief Executive Officer, said in a press release.
“Ohio has proven to be a state full of outdoor enthusiasts, and full of loyal Cabela’s customers. Now Cabela’s will have a fourth conveniently located store to serve Ohioans and help them enjoy their time outdoors,” he said.
The Avon location will feature a mountain replica, an aquarium, wildlife displays, an indoor archery range, and a fudge shop. It'll also open up some 200+ full and part-time jobs for area residents.
Cabela's is the second outdoors store to target northeast Ohio in recent months. Retail giant L.L.Bean
also announced plans to open a store in Lyndhurt's Legacy Village this November.
