Cabela's will begin construction on a 100,000-SF store near Target and the Promenade in early 2012.
It will be the state's first.
IMO, this gives the shopping center a significant boost both in traffic, and appeal to other possible tenants.
That's exciting and will definitely be a retail asset to that area. If Bass Pro ever gets around to building their store in Little Rock, we'll have both the major players covered in Arkansas!
Rumor that Fresh Market is taking Border's will also be welcomed news. Expect announcement in 30-60 days.
I had never thought of that location as a grocery, but it could work, and Fresh Market would be a nice addition to the NWA market. I've only been to one two story grocery store before, but it was about that size and was very nice. They used the second level as the deli/bakery area and had a nice wine selection with tastings if I remember right. I wonder what Fresh Market's plans for the little second level area will be.
