Cabela’s has started the interview process to fill 200 positions at its Lone Tree store, which is scheduled to open Aug. 15.
The sporting goods store is hiring full-time, part-time and seasonal employees to staff the 110,000-square-foot building.
“We are looking for employees who will deliver legendary customer service to the thousands of loyal Cabela’s customers across the Colorado Front Range,” said Cabela’s spokesman Chuck Bera.
The development site at RidgeGate Parkway and Interstate 25 also includes room for two or three other retail pads, a restaurant and hotel. Those tenants haven’t been selected yet.
“Part of the problem is, we have almost every retailer you can think of,” Lone Tree’s Deputy City Manager Seth Hoffman said. “It’s a great problem to have.
“I know the property owners are in active discussions with different retailers. It’ll just be a matter of them finding the right match. We expected groups would be waiting on the sidelines until Cabela’s was actually coming out of the ground.”
A second Denver-area store is under construction in Thornton. Cabela’s opened a Grand Junction store in 2010.
In addition to thousands of outdoor products, both the Lone Tree and Thornton stores will feature wildlife displays, mountain replicas, gun libraries, fudge shops, delis and indoor archery ranges.
Nebraska-based Cabela’s includes 44 stores, with 11 more on track to open in 2013 and 2014.
