— City and state officials will announce this morning that Cabela’s is opening a 100,000-square-foot store next to Target, just off Interstate 540 in the Pinnacle Hills Promenade shopping area.

This will be the only Cabela’s in Arkansas. The store is scheduled to open next summer, according to a Cabela’s news release.

Cabela’s is more than an outdoors equipment store, Mayor Greg Hines said Wednesday, it’s a tourist destination as well.

“This is a big deal for us. Cabela’s will attract visitors from surrounding states because of the quality of merchandise and the well-known name,” said Hines.

Cabela’s is an outdoors equipment store with 33 stores in the United States and Canada.
