Cabela's to Open in Green Bay

Cabela's has recently announced their impending arrival in Green Bay.  The 100,000 square foot store is slated to open its doors by the summer of 2013, just a couple of blocks south of Lambeau Field on Lombardi Avenue. 

For a small town with a stagnant economy, this is tremendous news.  In many respects, there are limited things to offer visitors within Green Bay proper.  Certainly, Door County has fantastic appeal, but it is not truly part of Green Bay. 

With the traffic provided by Lambeau, both on game days, special events like the "stockholders' meeting," and just the pilgrimage so many make to The Frozen Tundra, having another destination and distraction will aid the area's ability to keep folks in town, entertained, and spending. 

Personally, I can't wait for this to open, and predict that it will be wildly successful. 

Congratulations to the Packers, Cabela's, and the city of Green Bay for pulling this together.
