Lacey officials announced this week that Cabelas would locate its first Washington store in the city’s Gateway area.

In order to land Cabelas the city had to agree on a number of expenditures including getting a state grant of $9.9 million.   The city agreed to construct a public building with a cost of at least $6 million in the Gateway area.   The city also agreed to sell bonds to pay for 1-5 interchange improvements by using the sales and property tax it receives from the project to pay off the bonds.

For its efforts and taxpayer money Lacey is suppose to get a store with an estimated value of $40 million and a payroll of about 600.  Cabelas is expected to bring in about 5 million visitors and customers annually.
