Cabela's Incorporated, the World's Foremost Outfitter® of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, announced their plan to build a 72,000 square-foot store in the Pinnacle Park Development at I-45 near Big League Dreams Parkway in League City. The announcement was posted to the company’s website.
The new retail store will feature log construction, stonework, wood siding and metal roofing. The Cablea’s isn’t just a store; it’s an experience designed to give customers the feel of the outdoors with a large mountain replica, museum-quality wildlife displays and an aquarium. In addition to hunting, fishing, camping and outdoor products, the store will also include an indoor archery range and archery tech room, Gun Library, Bargain Cave, deli and fudge shop.
League City City Council approved zoning changes and a development agreement for Pinnacle Park Phase I, in a unanimous vote on October 14. The development is approximately 19 acres and includes space for Cabela’s as well as 110,000 sq. feet of additional space for several smaller retail and commercial establishments. “We are very excited to welcome a destination retailer to our community. This type of development establishes a strong foundation and catalyst for more retail opportunities in the I-45 corridor and for the city as a whole,” said City Manager Mark Rohr.
Pinnacle Park Development and Cabela’s are a part of the City’s continued efforts to attract new businesses and diversify League City’s tax base “This new development is the result of very diligent teamwork by the League City City Council, City staff, and the developers. But the work isn’t over for League City. Council and staff are already working in partnership on other projects in the City's continued efforts to attract new retail developments to the area in order to diversify League City’s tax base and provide more retail options for League City residents," said City Manager Mark Rohr.
Cabela’s expects construction to begin later this year and plan to open the new store in fall 2015. They also expect to hire 170 full-time and part-time employees, most of whom will come from League City and the surrounding area.”
