Cabela's sets opening date for Nanaimo store

Cabela's Canada has nailed down the date the doors will open at its Nanaimo store.

The start of a weekend-long grand opening celebration begins Thursday (Sept. 11) at 11 a.m.

The company is transforming the former Canadian Tire building, at 6900 Island Highway in the Dickinson Crossing Shopping Centre, into a 4,600-square metre store with an exterior reflecting Cabela’s model with log construction, stonework, wood siding and metal roofing.

Cabela's promises a unique ribbon-cutting ceremony for its first B.C. store, hosted by company executives and special guests, starting at 10:45 a.m. that will conclude with the grand-opening ribbon being cut by an arrow shot from a bow, triggering a weekend-long celebration highlighted by special appearances, family events, giveaways and more.

A complete schedule of events, when finalized, will be available on the company website at
