The retailer sells hunting, fishing and other outdoor gear.
The 100,000-square-foot store will be Cabela’s first in South Carolina. The store is expected to employ approximately 235 full-time, part-time and seasonal employees.
“South Carolinians are part of an exceptional outdoor tradition and share the Cabela’s lifestyle and values. We wanted to build a store in the Greenville area to recognize that,” Cabela’s CEO Tommy Millner said in a news release. “We are also excited about the opportunity to expand our retail footprint in the Southeast.”
Cabela’s currently operates 40 stores in the United States and Canada, with the closest being in Charleston, W.Va.
The construction date is not determined. The building will feature log construction, stonework, wood siding, metal roofing and a large glass storefront.
Magnolia Park, being developed by Menin Development, already includes Costco, Regal Cinemas, Rooms to Go, Cheddar’s and other retailers and restaurants, with plans for expansion. Two companies recently announced plans to locate at Magnolia Park as well — Dave & Buster’s restaurant and entertainment complex and Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar.
"We are pleased and proud that Cabela's has chosen Magnolia Park as their point of entry into the Southeast," Menin President Craig Menin said in a news release. "The fact that Cabela's, with all of the various options available to it, chose Magnolia speaks directly to the quality of our market and of our project.”
