Cabela’s to Open at Tulalip in Quil Ceda Village – Minimal Impact for Everett Sports Store

Calela's coming to QuilCeda Village in Tulalip

Everett Store's not worried about Cabela's coming to Tulalip

The announcement that Cabela’s will open a store in Quil Ceda Village does not cause long time Everett Sporting Goods store owner John Martinis much concern. For 30 years Martinis has owned John’s Sporting Goods at 1913 Broadway and has seen lots of sporting goods retailers come and go. Three years ago Jerry’s Surplus closed and most other sporting goods stores are really just parts of other multi-line retailers. Martinis tells me he’s about to launch a huge on-line addition to his website that will allow people across the country to purchase most items that he carries in the brick and mortar store so the opening of Cabela’s is of little concern.

Cabela’s expects to open the Tulalip store in 2012. The 110,000-square-foot store will be located within Quil Ceda Village on the Tulalip Tribes Indian reservation adjacent to Marysville about 30 miles north of Seattle along Interstate 5. This will be the second Cabela’s store in Washington, joining the Lacey location opened in 2007. The company operates 33 stores throughout the United States and Canada.

Quil Ceda Village was established in 2001 as the first federally recognized tribal city in the country.

“On behalf of the Tulalip Tribes, we welcome Cabela’s into this valuable partnership, which marks the historic occasion of the first Cabela’s store to be planned for opening on a Native American reservation,” said Mel Sheldon, chairman of the Tulalip Tribes. “This is a proud day as Tulalip adds Cabela’s to the unique Quil Ceda Village mix of entertainment, shopping and dining, which will create an exciting synergy that will spur additional economic growth throughout the North Snohomish County area. Cabela’s is the perfect fit for this destination location.”
