Cabela's Incorporated announced Dec. 18 it had plans to put its retail experience in Fort Mill, South Carolina, which is a Charlotte suburb.

Construction on the 97,500-square-foot store is scheduled to start in 2014 with a spring 2015 opening. Cabela's also expects to employ about 225 full-time, part-time and seasonal employees, most of whom will come from the Fort Mill area, according to the company.

The store will mark South Carolina's second, with a Greenville location in the works for a spring 2014 opening. Cabela's also recently announced plans to open a store in Garner, N.C. in 2015.

The Fort Mill location will be along Interstate 77, across from the Carowinds amusement park on a 20-acre tract of land that currently is occupied by the Plaza Fiesta mall.

"The overwhelmingly positive response to our recent Greenville and Garner announcements, coupled with the passion North and South Carolinians have for outdoor recreation, encouraged us to open a store in Fort Mill," Cabela's Chief Executive Officer Tommy Millner said in a news release. "We are thrilled to get to work on the project and look forward to opening the doors."

Cabela's has two locations in West Virginia.

The Fort Mill store will feature a mountain replica, aquarium, museum-quality wildlife displays, indoor archery range, deli and Bargain Cave. It also will include a full-service boat shop and a comprehensive selection of wildlife and land management products, including tractors, attachments and implements. 

Cabela's stores showcase thousands of products, including hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, boating and wildlife-watching gear, as well as clothing and outdoor-themed gifts and furnishings. The company is famous for its strong brand and world-renowned reputation for delivering quality merchandise, value and legendary customer service.

Currently, Cabela's operates 50 stores across North America with plans to open an additional 20 over the next two years.
