    Does anyone know when they'll open? I have to say, this is not going to be good for the ole budget!

    I heard a radio spot where they are seeking applications. It's going up fast.

    I drive by it twice a day. Sign in front says: "Opening Summer 2012".

    They are currently working on the roof from what I can see from the road. No clue what is going on inside the building. tick tock tick tock
  8. Does this mean they'll charge sales tax on mail order now?

    If so they can say goodbye to my business..........

    I think so.

    They have been making some impressive progress on the building. Still, I would guess it's gonna be late summer before it's open.

    Why be upset with the store? They didn't make the law your state rep. did. I am sure it cost them money to do all of the paper work to collect the tax.

    Opening in summer 2012 and are hiring now so I would think they would around the end of June sure is a nice building.
  12. I'm not upset with the store....... I'm just not paying tax on a mail order product when I can get it somewhere else.

    I hate big box sporting goods stores...... try to never go in one.

    I hear it's all Tom Cotton's fault:wink:
  14. Bass Pro never got their LR store off the ground, but I bet they pick up a good deal of mail business because of the new cabelas store.

    2 1/2 million people in Arkansas and only 400K of those in NWA...........why would you build a high overhead big box store in today's world?
  15. There is a lot of money in NWA........most people have jobs up there.
    How big is this Cabela's?
    I usually hit either Cabela's or Bass Pro Shops when I road trip to a bigger place like Kansas City,Springfield,Phoenix,and Tulsa has a nice BP or many other places airplanes break..........

    I want to say someone told me it's their smallest format. They're sure chugging along on that building.
    I seriously doubt that they decided to build a store here by throwing darts at a map. I think I read in one article that catlog sales were taken into account. It would make sense that there's a lot of mail order business here. With the exception of the year or two when Sportsmans Whorehouse was open, we've never had a decent sporting goods store. I order practically all my hunting gear except for archery stuff.

    I talked with the general manager last week. He said store will be open on Aug 31 one way or the other. Also said store was the same store that they have in Allen Tx. Not huge but big enough to carry lots of stuff

    Yes, I spent about 3 hours in the store in Allen last week, and they told me that the store in Rogers will be the same size as theirs.
  19. How does the Allen store compare to the one in Fort Worth?
