GRANDVILLE, Mich. — Cabela’s announced it will open the Grandville location on March 21.

The hunting, fishing and outdoor gear retailer will have a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10:45 a.m. Cabela’s executives and some local leaders will take part. Then at 11 a.m. the store opens for business. It will follow with a weekend full of activities including special guests, outdoor celebrities and giveaways.

This location will be the third Michigan Cabela’s, following the Dundee and Saginaw stores. It will be 88,000 square feet, and the outside will look like a traditional Cabela’s with log construction, stonework, wood siding and metal roofing. The store will have a mountain replica, featuring “North American game animals re-created in their natural habitat, as well as a built-in aquarium stocked with fish native to the area,” according to a press release. There will be a gun shop and a bargain cave, but also a deli and a fudge shop too.

“This is an exciting time for Cabela’s in Michigan and we expect our new Grandville location to be a great success,” said Tommy Millner, the chief executive officer, in a media release.

Cabela’s expects to hire approximately 200 full-time, part-time and seasonal employees.
