Line forms as Albuquerque Cabela’s prepares to open

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Cabela’s is set to open its first ever location in Albuquerque and a huge line has formed before the official ribbon cutting.

“I have been out here since about Tuesday night,” said Tara Crastensen.

More than 200 people have camped out at the camping, hunting and fishing mega-store. Cabela’s is giving out $100-$500 gift cards to the first 500 people in line.

Tara Carstensen brought an iPad, her dog, and a slingshot to pass the time. Kevin Camp has been waiting to see a Cabela’s in Albuquerque for more than a decade.

“It’s overdue and well-needed,” Camp said.

Another person waiting in line is Jordan Madrid, who got in line Wednesday at 12 p.m. He is hoping to get one of the $500 gift cards so he can buy some fishing equipment.

Cabela’s ribbon cutting takes place Thursday at 10 a.m. They will also be auctioning off three Remington rifles.
