Dundee Cabela's set to reopen this week after fire
Outdoors enthusiasts of southeast Michigan, rejoice: Cabela’s in Dundee reopens Friday afternoon.
The store has been closed since Wednesday, April 26 after a small electrical fire required a major cleanup. Spokesman Chuck Smock said the store, 110 Cabela’s Blvd., is scheduled to open at 4 p.m. Friday.
According to a statement released Tuesday afternoon, Cabela’s employees and outside contractors are working in three shifts around the clock to complete the cleanup.
“Our team is eager to get our store put back together,” said Joe Ross, general manager of the store. “We can’t wait until we can open the doors and welcome our customers back.”
The fire started at 2:30 a.m. Wednesday and the store suffered smoke and chemical damage during the process of putting it out. A sooty film covered parts of the store.
The entire clothing inventory and other goods needed to be replaced. Store officials said all merchandise damaged by the fire, smoke and the fire extinguisher compound have been removed from the store. They will be replaced by new items.
The building itself did not suffer any structural damage.
Cabela’s will continue to honor sale prices for its Warm Up to Savings event and the upcoming Let’s Go Camping promotion until May 12.
