Welcome Cabela’s to Wichita

South-central Kansans have been waiting a long time for a Cabela’s, the Nebraska-based chain that is equal parts outdoors retailer and tourist attraction. A public-private partnership helped bring the 80,000-square-foot store to 21st and Greenwich, where it’s anticipated to be part of a sales-tax and revenue bond district focused on sports. Here’s hoping the opening festivities, to include Gov. Sam Brownback, draw the attention and buying power of the region’s outdoor enthusiasts and lead to a long, successful run in Wichita for the landmark retailer.
