Army & Air Force Exchange Service Enlists Cabela’s at Three Installations in Time for the Holidays

DALLAS – As part of the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s ongoing effort to bring more national brands to service members, families and retirees, Cabela’s is set to open its first three seasonal locations at military installations in time for holiday shopping.

Cabela’s, which carries merchandise for hunting, fishing, camping and shooting sports, is scheduled to open Nov. 23 at Freedom Crossing at Fort Bliss, Texas; Fort Hood, Texas; and Fort Leonard Wood, Mo.

Offering name brands in-store and online has become a priority for the Exchange. Cabela’s is the latest in a series of announcements concerning national-brand introductions at Army posts and Air Force bases around the world.

“The Exchange delivers brands that speak to each military community we serve,” said Trinidad Saucedo, the Exchange’s senior vice president of services, food and fuel. “Bringing Cabela’s on board in time for Black Friday and the holiday shopping season shows the Exchange is listening and is committed to serving the community.”

The Cabela’s seasonal locations at Fort Bliss, Fort Hood and Fort Leonard Wood will carry a variety of soft goods, shoes, hunting gear, outdoors equipment and gifts.
