CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

An impressive front entrance to Cabela’s (minus the bronze statue that has yet to be unveiled).

Just north of Cabela’s you can still find corn fields and thick Illinois forests, country roads and pumpkin patches. But, just south and east of Cabela’s is easy access to the Chicago metropolitan area and international connections — namely Sears Centre, Interstate 90, O’Hare International Airport, Arlington Park Racetrack, Woodfield Shopping Mall, and ultimately the City of Chicago. Currently there are only 19 other giant Cabela’s retail stores in the United States. The Chicago area is about to gain a big presence in retail hunting, fishing and outdoor gear. So big, it’s a tourist attraction, in fact.

The 185,000-square-foot, large-format superstore, which includes boat sales and a boat service department, is located 20 minutes from Chicago’s O’Hare Airport within the Prairie Stone Business Park at I-90 and Route 59 near the Sears Centre [MAP/SAT]. Prairie Stone, which also serves as the headquarters for Sears Holdings Corp., is a 780-acre, master-planned business park surrounded by a forest preserve that captures the beauty of the surrounding Midwestern landscape.

Up to four million people are expected to visit the Hoffman Estates Cabela’s store annually, making it one of the top tourist attractions in the state. The Hoffman Estates store showcases the best of the outdoors in a spectacular indoor shopping experience. Cabela’s really brings the outdoors, indoors. Cabela’s stores are known as top-notch educational and entertainment attractions. Equivalent to nearly three football fields in size, Cabela’s is much more than a retail store and will provide unique attractions for every member of the family including:

Hundreds of animals in extensive, museum-quality dioramas, including an African scene, that re-create animals in action in their native habitats

Cabela’s hallmark two-story Conservation Mountain, complete with running waterfalls and stream, a trout pond and wild game in their distinctive habitats — a huge waterfall greets visitor as they come in the front door

Huge 16,000-gallon, walk-through aquarium, stocked with freshwater fish, including those native to Illinois

Customers will be greeted outside Cabela’s by an original bronze signature sculpture. The identity of the sculpture will be revealed at a special unveiling on Thursday, September 20
Other highlights include a restaurant, laser arcade, boat showroom and maintenance shop, furniture department, gun library, general store, fly fishing shop and gift shop.

New boats lined up outside the new Cabela’s for the Chicago metro area — right here in Hoffman Estates.

Cabela’s Hoffman Estates store hours will be Monday – Saturday, 9:00 a.m. – 9:30 p.m., and 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. on Sunday. The store address is 5225 Prairie Stone Parkway Hoffman Estates, Illinois. 60192.

Cabela’s Hoffman Estates is one of fourteen new stores expected to open soon, including one in Montreal, Canada.
