Cabela's announces Woodbury hiring goal: 150 jobs

Woodbury’s unemployment figures are among the lowest in the Twin Cities, and they could shrink even more following news of a mass hiring event.

Cabela’s Incorporated announced Wednesday that it plans to hire 150 employees for its new Woodbury store, located at Interstate 94 and Radio Drive. According to a news release, the outdoor retailer will interview candidates from Jan. 27-31.

Most workers are expected to come from Woodbury and the surrounding area, according to the release.

Full-time, part-time and seasonal positions are expected to be filled, the release states.

The store opens later this year.
