New Cabela's Store Coming To Mid-Atlantic Region

A retail store for the outdoor chain has been announced near the Baltimore metro area.

Maryland's outdoor and hunting enthusiasts won't have to wake up before dawn just to go hunting for gear anymore.

A new Cabela's retail store is coming to Christiana, DE. The store would be just a 75-minute commute up Interstate 95 from Baltimore—the closest of the popular franchise's stores to the region.

According to a news release on the company website, constuction on the 110,000-square-foot store will begin in 2013, with a grand opening slated for 2014.

It will be built adjacent to the shopping center in Christiana.

Currrently, a store in Hamburg, PA is the closest to the area—two-and-a-half hours from Baltimore.

Good business decision to locate in DE, no sales tax. I am sure many Marylanders will take advantage.

Right over the line in tax free Delaware!

This is sweet, plus no sales tax. If it is as busy as their store in Pa. it will be a winner. Can't wait till it opens!! I will have to hit Cabela's on my way to the Tanger Outlets in Rehoboth Beach De.

I already shop in DE every chance I get, living in Harford Co, it's easy to get up there. ...... now I have another reason....sorry Dick's, REI, etc., but tax free shopping is quite appealing.

I buy off the Cabela's website several times a year. It would be better to try some of the clothing on first, because imported clothes rarely run true to size like the American made goods I grew up wearing. But, one advantage to buying online from Cabela's is that they often have customers' reviews to each online catalog item. So, if I go to the new store in Delaware - which I intend to do - I'll research online first for what I'm going to the store for.

I shop in Delaware once a week. Whenever i can, I save up my purchases for a single trip. I get a perverse sense of pleasure driving back across the state line, knowing that I beat O'Malley out of his six percent. The spending crazy libs in this state will not stop until they've extracted every last discretionary cent we have available and given it to the welfare state. I love my country, but I'm beginning to despise my government!!

the *only* downside to that location? it's in Christiana. the crime rate is significantly higher than in Hamburg. watch your surroundings, people.

True there is not a sales tax in Delaware but there is a tax collected on all revenue the business takes in from all sales, including labor, regardless of any actual profit generated, a tax Maryland does not impose! Do you think that added cost to the business is not passed onto the buyer, it is a cost of doing business just as the cost of goods. Any business not passing all costs into the products sold will soon be out of business! I suppose people will think they are not paying a tax if it is hidden from them!

Maybe with the new casinos coming to Maryland, they can eliminate or reduce our sales tax. Yea Right.

tax free in Delaware but what about all the tolls to pay getting there? I do like Cabela's but shopping online is another way to go and saves on gas also.Just saying...

As I tried to explain to my dad when he ran from "high taxes" in Maryland for the "No Tax State of Delaware," every local has costs and the state gets their revenue from some source. When you are not paying tax your paying it in another way, significantly higher power costs are one as proven with my previous post. My father was paying more for his water than I payed for my electricity. When he lived in Maryland he had his trash picked up in front of his house, in Delaware he had to pay someone or take it to the dump himself. Fire and ambulance service is pay as you go, when you can find it, in Delaware. The road in front of his house had holes big enough to lose a small child in! Bottom line is, there is no free lunch and the money is coming from some place. I prefer to know where I am paying and manage my money accordingly to my best advantage.

Other Tim, here is the facts on Receipt tax right from Delaware. There are taxes being collected that consumers are not aware of in that state. In some way they are being passed on either in direct costs or reduced service. Gross Receipt Taxes Depending on the type business, gross receipts tax can range from 0.077% to 1.5365 of gross receipts. http://www.selectgreaterphiladelphia.com/data/realestate/taxes/de.cfm

WOW Gil..sounds like you work the OWE'Malley admin. I'm not going to Del to purchase power, drink the water or fix the roads. Try and sell it anyway you like..it is much cheaper to purchase items in Del. Oh, BTW, check out how much better the payouts are at the casinoes as opposed to MD.

How much in gas and tolls is it costing me to save 6%? I don't like OweMalley either but I would have to weigh my savings... I guess if it was a shopping excursion but I don't see me heading there for one item....

In what parallel universe is Harrisburg two and one-half hours from Baltimore? Maybe during rush hour, but then, the trek up I 95 is no picnic at rush hour. Assuming the speed limit and no traffic jams, York is a bit over an hour from Baltimore going up 83. Add another half hour or so to Harrisburg. Who came up with 2 1/2 hours?

Hamburg PA not Harrisburg. Hamburg is west of Allentown. There is no easy way to get there from here.
