Union Gap Ready For Cabela’s Outpost
Dirt and debris are being removed to make way for an outdoors-man's paradise. however, this paradise won't be outside, rather indoors at the Cabela's outpost store in Union Gap. The Mayor Jim Lemon says the store is actually considered a tourist destination and there will be signs that lead drivers from the interstate to the store.
The business owners expect to hire 65 full and part-time employees.
Lemon says it should bring $300,000 to $500,000 in sales tax revenue for the city.
Nearby restaurants and coffee shops are hoping the new stores translates into more business for them. The idea is that a customer who spends his day shopping at Cabelas might build up an appetite and head out for a bite to eat.
