MULL BLOG A Marine Ice Pick?

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

Every time I think of an ice pick, I can't help but think of that "Basic Instinct" movie with Michael Douglas and that blonde chick (I'll think of her name in a minute) where this gal keeps an ice pick under the mattress to whack dudes she picked up in bars. Oh yeah, the actress was Sharon Stone. The fat guy who played Newman in "Seinfeld" was in it too.  Read Full Story

Wojo Wallet Floats

Thursday, November 20, 2014

For someone living an active lifestyle, there is nothing worse than being anchored to a wallet that doesn’t fit in any of your pockets!  When you want to run, hike, bike, or swim, the last thing you want to think about is, “Where in the world am I going to stash my wallet?”  At the beach, you may pile it under your towel and hope it’s there when you get out, and on the trails you could be forced to carry a bag to hold your cumbersome belongings, when what you really wanted was a little more freedom.  These worries are now a thing of the past thanks to Wojo Wallet, the world’s most transportable and versatile wallet for the active and adventurous.  Read Full Story

Cabelas Locations to open in Virginia and Ontario

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

SIDNEY, Neb. – Cabela’s Incorporated (NYSE:CAB), the World’s Foremost Outfitter of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, announced today plans to introduce Cabela’s unique retail experience and legendary customer service to two new markets: Gainesville, Va., and Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.


Cabela’s anticipates a spring 2017 opening for the 79,000-square-foot store. It will be located at the intersection of Linton-Hall Road and Lee Highway and will be adjacent the Virginia Gateway Center, a 1.3 million-square-foot shopping center featuring national retail, restaurant and hotel brands. Peterson Companies Inc. is the developer.

Gainesville is now Cabela’s third announced location in Virginia, joining the 82,000-square-foot Bristol store scheduled to open in fall 2015, and the 97,500-square-foot Short Pump location expected to open in spring 2016. Cabela’s expects to employ approximately 190 full-time and part-time employees at the store, most of whom will come from Gainesville and the surrounding area.

“The fact that Cabela’s is bringing three new stores to Virginia speaks volumes to the outdoor opportunities and lifestyle in the state, as well as Virginians’ passion for the Cabela’s brand,” said Tommy Millner, Cabela’s Chief Executive Officer. “The Gainesville store also will be a great location for our customers in Maryland and West Virginia.”

The store will be built in Cabela’s new-format layout, designed to surround customers in an outdoor-like experience with a large mountain replica, museum-quality wildlife displays and an aquarium. In addition to thousands of quality outdoor products, the store will include an indoor archery range and archery tech room, Gun Library, Bargain Cave, deli and fudge shop.

Also, it will include a full-service boat shop and a comprehensive selection of Cabela’s Wildlife and Land Management products, including tractors, attachments and implements. Additionally, the store’s staff will host educational seminars and demonstrations throughout the year offering tips and insight on outdoor products and activities.


Construction is scheduled to begin in 2015, and Cabela’s plans to open the store in the spring of 2016. The 70,000-square-foot store will be located near the intersection of Palladium Drive and Highway 417. It will anchor the newly planned Kanata West Centre, which is being developed by Taggart Realty Management.

The store will be Cabela’s second location in Ontario, joining the 70,000-square-foot Barrie location opened in July. Cabela’s expects to hire approximately 175 full-time and part-time employees, most of whom will come from Ottawa and the surrounding area.

“Cabela’s has experienced great success in Canada, and we’re absolutely thrilled to continue our Canadian expansion with an Ottawa location,” Millner said. “What better way to show Cabela’s commitment to serving our loyal Canadian customers than bringing a store to the nation’s capital.”

The store will be built in Cabela’s new-format Canadian layout, designed to surround customers in an outdoor-like experience with a large mountain replica and museum-quality wildlife displays. In addition to thousands of quality outdoor products, the store will include an indoor archery range and archery tech room, Gun Library, Bargain Cave and fudge shop. Additionally, the store’s staff will host educational seminars and demonstrations throughout the year, offering tips and insight on outdoor products and activities.

Cabela’s Canada was established in 2007 with a store and headquarters for Canadian operations in Winnipeg, Manitoba. In 2010, Cabela’s Canada opened its current corporate headquarters and call center in Winnipeg.

Currently, Cabela’s operates 64 stores across North America and has announced plans to open an additional 19 stores over the next two years.
