LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A new store is opening up in Louisville, bringing with it about 200 new jobs.
Cabela’s is set to open next spring in the Old Brownsboro Crossing Shopping Center. The 88,000 square foot store will feature products for outdoor activities like hunting, fishing and camping.
“It’s a great opportunity for people in this area,” Hope Patterson, who lives near where the new store will open, said.
The spokesperson for Cabela’s, Wes Remmer, said they chose Louisville because they have a large and loyal customer base in the area.
Remmer said the company would like to hire mostly locals for their open positions. Right now, they have not made any announcements regarding openings, but will be releasing more information as the opening day gets closer.
“We love people who share our passion for getting out and finding adventure,” Remmer said during a phone interview with WHAS11 News.
Remmer said people interested in applying should keep a close eye on their website for job announcements.
