Tooele – Cabela’s, along with the Governor’s Office of Economic Development, announced plans to operate a distribution center in Tooele County to process freight and deliver products to consumers.
“We are happy to see such a major player in the outdoor industry continue to grow its presence in Utah," said Governor Gary R. Herbert. “The creation of Cabela's Utah distribution center will strengthen our valued outdoor industry and create family sustaining jobs in rural areas.”
Cabela’s is the world’s largest direct marketer of hunting, fishing, camping and related outdoor merchandise. The company offers a wide selection of outdoor products through its established direct business and growing number of destination retail stores. Currently, Cabela’s operates 50 stores across North America, including a 150,000-foot-store in Lehi.
Cabela’s is entering into an agreement with the state to create approximately 250 jobs, 85 of which will be contracted with the state to pay at least 100 percent of Tooele County’s average annual wage including benefits.
“As Cabela’s continues to grow, so, too, does the need to expand the footprint of our distribution centers,” said Tommy Millner, Cabela’s CEO. “It’s exciting to accomplish that while also bringing new jobs to Utah, where we have thousands of loyal customers and people live the Cabela’s lifestyle.”
“Cabela’s decision to locate its state-of-the-art distribution facility in Tooele shows the hard work of our economic development partners in Tooele County,” said Jeff Edwards, president and CEO of Economic Development Corporation of Utah. “Cabela’s presence in Tooele County will serve as a catalyst for quality job growth and increased capital investment in Utah.”
