Appreciate the good news.

Here's the press release on 2 new Cabelas stores coming to Georgia in Acworth & Augusta at the web link below:

Cabela's® Announces Plans for Four New Stores

Two Stores to Open in Georgia; Others to open in Montana and Canada

SIDNEY, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 25, 2013-- Cabela’s Incorporated (NYSE:CAB), the World’s Foremost Outfitter® of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, announced today plans to bring the extraordinary Cabela’s retail experience to four new markets in 2014 – Acworth, Ga.; Augusta, Ga.; Missoula, Mont.; and Barrie, Ontario, Canada.


ACWORTH

Construction on the approximately 100,000-square-foot store is scheduled to begin this fall and Cabela’s plans to open the store in the fall of 2014. It will be located in the Cherokee Village development in the northeast quadrant of I-75 and Highway 92. Majestic Realty is developing the shopping center.

The Acworth store is expected to employ approximately 200 full-time, part-time and seasonal employees. Most will come from Acworth and the surrounding area.

The store will be built in Cabela’s next-generation layout, designed to surround customers in an outdoor-like experience with museum-quality wildlife displays. In addition to thousands of quality outdoor products, the store will include a large mountain replica, a Gun Library, Bargain Cave, Boat Shop, Indoor Archery Range, Deli and Fudge Shop.

The Acworth and Augusta stores are Cabela’s first and second in Georgia.

“We are thrilled to bring Cabela’s to a state with such a great outdoor tradition.” said Tommy Millner, Cabela’s Chief Executive Officer. “Georgia, especially the Acworth area, is full of sportsmen and women who share Cabela’s enthusiasm for outdoor recreation. It is time to serve their needs with an extraordinary Cabela’s store.”


AUGUSTA

Construction is scheduled to begin this summer and Cabela’s plans to open the store in the spring of 2014. The 42,000-square-foot Cabela’s Outpost store will be located on the south side of I-20 at Riverwatch Parkway in the Village at Riverwatch development. MGHerring is managing the development.

The store is expected to employ approximately 90 full-time, part-time and seasonal employees. Most will come from Augusta and the surrounding area.

Designed for efficiency, flexibility and convenience, Cabela's Outpost stores offer the same quality products and customer service for which Cabela's is famous. Cabela’s opened its first Cabela’s Outpost store in fall 2012 in Union Gap, Wash. In February, the company opened its second such location, in Saginaw, Mich.

The Augusta location will feature a Core-Flex floor plan allowing products to be rotated seasonally, as well as a rugged outdoor look and feel. It will include innovative digital signage and the same quality products and customer service for which Cabela's is famous.

“Cabela’s is very excited about our two Georgia locations,” Millner said. “Georgia is full of outdoorsmen and women who have supported our catalog and website for years. The Augusta Outpost store will be a great start to bringing Georgia the full Cabela’s retail experience.”

I heard about the acworth store not long ago. A couple years ago the rumor was they were coming to cartersville. Glad it's atleast on this side of the state.

Is your property behind the Waffle House off Glad Road? The one I'm thinking of runs right down the interstate and is 20 acres I think.

My wife just told me "no" when I told her....

By then end of next year, I'll have a Bass Pro, an Academy (Cartersville), and a Cabelas all within 30 minutes of my house.

Anybody else hearing 'Ode to Joy' playing loudly in their head. I'm gonna have to get a second job.

I'm really excited!!! I've always wanted to goto a cabelas and soon will be able to! I live in Dallas and to have a choice between cabelas and bass pro within 45 mins of my house is great. I hate driving all the way to the other side of town to goto bass pro.

Bass Pro....Fishing store that sells hunting gear.

Cabelas......Hunting store that sells fishing gear.

Cabelas is my favorite. Wish it was going to be a little closer to me. Congrats to you guys up north.

Still nothing from Atlanta to Auburn, AL. Southside gets the shaft again. Well, at least we're used to it...
