Posted: Updated:

UNION GAP, Wash.-- Our camera's get a sneak peek at Cabela's New Outpost store in Union Gap about a week before the grand opening.

The 40,000 square foot store is the first of its kind for Cabela's, but will carry many of the same products their traditional locations do.

General Manager, Randy Longnecker says they had over 800 people apply for jobs, and many others are excited about the opening.

"We can hardly go to lunch throughout the day where we're not getting people that are just really excited for us to come to the community and they can't wait for us to open," said Longnecker.

The store hired 116 part and full-time employees.

The grand opening is Thursday, October 4th at 11 in the morning.

Cabela's says there will be special deals and even celebrities hanging out.
