Cabela’s Inc. plans to hire about 90 full- and part-time employees to staff its new Outpost store in Missoula, which is scheduled to open this summer.

Anyone interested in applying should visit, then follow the links for “Apply Now” and “United States Jobs.” Log in and complete the application process. Applying does not guarantee an interview.

Interviews will take place March 13 to 15 at the Holiday Inn Downtown, 200 S. Pattee St.

The 42,000-square-foot store will be the Cabela’s third Montana store, joining the 80,000-square-foot Billings store that opened in 2009 and the 42,000-square-foot Kalispell Outpost store that opened last year.

“We are looking forward to building a staff that will join the existing Billings and Kalispell locations in providing Cabela’s legendary customer service across Big Sky Country,” said Jeff Friesen, general manager of the new store. “The ideal candidate is hard-working and passionate about the outdoors.”

The store is located in the South Crossing retail development at Brooks Street and South Reserve Street.

    But K-Mart didn't need taxpayer money to open in Missoula, so other stores like Bob Wards are paying higher taxes to subsidize Cabela's. Much like Liquid Planet paying higher taxes to subsidize a new Starbucks, essentially next door.

    Let it be noted that once again Missoula rates only the junior model with a Cabela's half the size of the one in Billings following the established local trend of both the shrunk-down Sears and JC Penney stores in the Southgate Mall. It seems The Garden City continues to warrant only token versions of the nation' biggest retailers. And what's happened with Kohl's which has already opened a store in a far more business friendly Bozeman?

    Where is Jimbo Grunke? He usually takes credit for any job coming to Missoula, even though he did not bring it in. Jimbo......are you okay?

    So much of our tax dollars or property taxes is this business getting to compete against its competition? And how many people did K-mart employ that were lost.
