Cabela's to open stores in Va., Del., In 2014

SIDNEY, Neb. - Cabela's Inc. plans to open two new stores in Virginia and Delaware in 2014 to sell sporting goods and outdoor gear.

The Sidney, Neb., company said Wednesday that construction on both stores will begin in 2013.

The 85,000-square-foot store planned for Bristol, Va., will be the first Cabela's in Virginia.

The new store in Christiana, Del., will be roughly 110,000 square feet.

Cabela's CEO Tommy Millner says the locations of both new stores was chosen partly because sales data from the company's website and catalog showed it already had a sizeable customer base nearby.

Cabela's runs 38 stores across the United States and Canada. But the company is expanding with plans to open two more stores this year, seven in 2013 and one other store in 2014.
