Cabela’s brings destination retail to League City

The City of League City welcomes, Cabela’s, as they open their doors to the public on March 17.

Cabela’s, the first destination retailing of its kind in League City, features 72,000 square feet of high quality hunting, fishing and outdoor camping gear.

“The City of League City is proud to welcome Cabela’s to our community,” said Mark Rohr, City Manager. “This leading national outdoor retail store is the only one within the greater Houston area and is expected to draw patrons within a 100-plus mile radius.

The grand opening marks a new era as Cabela’s opens one of League City’s initial destination retailers,” Rohr continued.

Destination retailers, such as Cabela’s, are important because they bring in non-resident sales tax revenue into the City. The sales tax revenue generated from destination retail help lighten the tax burden on residents and fund improvement projects for the City.

“We anticipate the store opening to become a boon for nearby restaurants, retailers and hoteliers,” said Rick Beverlin, Director of Economic Development. “It also serves as the anchor in the 100-acre Pinnacle Park development which our community will see being developed as a major mixed use and retail center over the next several years.”

The collaborative partnership formed between the City, Cabela’s, and the property developer since site work began in 2014 was crucial to bringing destination retail to League City.

“I want to personally thank the City Council, Deputy City Manager John Baumgartner, Planning and Development Director Paul Menzies, and all other City Staff,” said Rohr. “Their support, hard work and commitment to partnering with Cabela’s and the property developer contributed significantly to the opening of the store.”

Employment estimates for Cabela’s are more than 200 full-time, part-time and seasonal staff who more than likely live within League City and the surrounding communities.

The grand opening is set for March 17 at 10 a.m. with a unique ribbon-cutting prior to the opening. Visit www.cabelas.com/leaguecity for a complete schedule of events set for the grand opening weekend.
