Cabela's is Coming to Allen, TX

Cabela'sThe 2-Story, Hunting-Fishing-Boating-Camping-Outdoors Megastore will open its 100,000 square-foot store on 14 acres of land off Cabela's Drive, just south of the Village at Allen shopping center in May 2011.  It will not only create 120 new jobs, but will also aid the City of Allen in its continuous efforts to lower property taxes.  Part of the 15-year contract includes a requirement that Cabela's will make minimum annual sales of $40 million in taxable items, or pay a penalty.  With the addition of Cabela's to Allen's retail base, the AEDC has been able to decrease the property tax rate for the 17th year in a row.  That makes Allen a great choice for homebuyers wishing to re-locate to the DFW area.
Today, we drove an hour to attend a crappie fishing seminar presented by a local fishing guide.  This time next year, we will be able to drive approximately 6 blocks for the same information.  As for the shopping, there are thousands of products set among a shooting gallery, aquarium, multiple museum quality displays, a restaurant....And for those who prefer to mix business with their outdoor recreational shopping, a Conference Center. coating buddy
As for me, my sole purchase was a batter bowl in
preparation for the upcoming fish fry!
