Sidney-based Cabela’s will open a retail store on an Indian reservation in Washington state.
The company along with Tulalip Tribes formally announced plans this week for a 110,000 square-foot store located in the Quil Ceda Village 30 miles north of Seattle.
Cabela’s CEO Tommy Millner says, “Washington is rich with outdoor recreation opportunities, and many people in this area are longtime Cabela’s catalog and Internet customers.
We’re excited to open another store in the Evergreen State.” Tulalip Tribes chairman Mel Sheldon says, “We welcome Cabela’s into this valuable partnership, which marks the historic occasion of the first Cabela’s store to be planned for opening on a Native American reservation.”
The store is planned for a 2012 opening, along with previously announced stores in Wichita, Kansas and Saskatchewan, Canada.
