Construction on a nearly 7,000-square-foot expansion of Augusta’s Cabela’s location could begin as early as next week, according to Chad Joyner.
Joyner, General Manager of the store located at 833 Cabela Drive in the Village at Riverwatch, said the additional space will be used to display a wide range of TRACKER products, including boats and ATVs.
“When you’re looking at the building, it will be on the right-hand side of the store that faces Topgolf,” he said.
Joyner said the company estimates the expansion will be completed by June. The location will also be rebranded as a Bass Pro Outpost, and signage will be posted throughout the store will be changed to reflect that. He said the front of the building will display signage for both Cabela’s and Bass Pro Shops.
“Ultimately, we’re all under the Bass Pro umbrella,” Joyner said.
The rebranding may be completed sooner than the expansion, possibly as early as April. The 42,000-square-foot store, which sells a variety of hunting, fishing, and camping supplies, opened in March 2014.
On Monday, the Augusta Commission approved the company’s plan to expand the store. This is a developing story, and we’ll bring our readers updated information as it becomes available.
