I just heard from a friend that he knows a contractor that is building a Cabelas store in Moncton.
It is supose to be the building that is being built now in the Trinity power center facing the new Golftown and Source for Sports stores.
Has anyone else heard this or is this just a joke?? If it is true.... OMG !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There goes the next 4 paychecks ahahha

If your talking about the building that is currently up, it must be a joke, as it would be way too small compared to the ones that they built in the States.

I'm pretty sure the stores in Canada and some of the ones in the states aren't all the same size.

I was there at that site last week and there is nothing large enought to fit even the smallest Cabelas in that area... Would be awesome but... http://www.cabelas.c...p?WTz_l=Header. Nothing on their site.

I highly doubt a cabelas coming to New Brunswick. Not near enough market for them. I was told that the one in maine was suppose to attracts some of us, and it has. If it does come. I hope all the shop owners around these parts are ready to retire.

Gents if I may.........I had the Bass Pro Shop people in Saint John a few years ago. They toured the city and were impressed. Met the mayor and had various presentations made to them.
The bottem line was they need 50 million dollars for development (private money) in order to build a store. The demographics were acceptable for Saint John but as in every city in Atlantic Canada, no money.
I can tell you that the Bass Pro in Ontario was projected to pay for itself in 20 years and took only 1 year to do so.

Now, the Cabela's store in Scarborough Maine seems to be slipping. I found that business is slow there and not a lot of stock? This would be a "C" store which is their smallest in their fleet. I would say a little bigger than most Walmarts.
On the other hand, Bass Pro in Ontario is a much better store with a lot better selection and a hudge boat section. Better store in my opinion.

It is very unlikely that Bass Pro or Cabela's would come to this area anytime soon. Unless of course someone has too much money to invest?

Keep an eye on better Buy Sports as they are expanding all the time. They just opened a pretty big store in Dartmouth and are looking for new larger digs in Saint John.

Whatever happens, we need to support our local shops!

with the maritimes as a whole only having 1.75 million people it would be a hard sell IMO...cool info whaler and i agree support local buisneses if u can...cheers bam

Actually Cabela's retail rule of thumb is is 1 million people within a 30 mile radius, a minimum of 22 acres of land and a minimum store size of 85,000 sq ft,have major highway access and visibility.
1 of the criteria used when determining where to locate a store is the amount of catalogue orders from a particular geographic area.
Bottom line...if you think they are come to Moncton anytime soon you're dreamin..

I don't buy that (1 Million per 30 Square Miles), the population of Portland is smaller than Halifax, and the entire population of Maine is just over a million. That being said, I don't think they're coming here. It's a fun dream though.

The criteria is right on the website if you want to have a gander. I was incorrect about the 22 acres...its 12.
