Cabela's to open near Green Bay

ASHWAUBENON (WKOW) -- Outdoor retailer Cabela's will open on a store on property owned by the Green Bay Packers.

Packers CEO Mark Murphy said Friday Cabela's will build a store near the intersection of Highway 41 and Lombardi Avenue in Ashwaubenon.

According to WLUK-TV, the Packers organization has been trying to develop the property for a couple of years. But, part of the property is a wetland. However, last year the Legislature changed the law allowing the site to be developed.

Construction is set to begin this fall and Cabela's plans to open the store in the summer of 2013.

The Ashwaubenon Cabela's will be the third store in Wisconsin. It also has stores in Prairie du Chien and Richfield.

Cabela's is headquartered in Sidney, Nebraska.
