GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Anyone who has driven along Woodruff Road in recent weeks has likely noticed the Cabela's store looks close to finished.

And store officials said the grand opening is drawing near. The outdoor outfitter has set the opening time and date for 11 a.m. on Thursday April 3.

A ribbon cutting ceremony will begin at 10:45 a.m. and doors will open for business at 11 a.m. The store will host grand opening events throughout the weekend including celebrity appearances, family events, giveaways and more. Further details have not been released about the events.

The 100,000-square-foot store is the first Cabela's South Carolina location. The store is expected to employ approximately 235 full-time and part-time employees.

The store will feature museum-quality wildlife displays, thousands of outdoor products, a large mountain replica, a gun library, bargain cave, indoor archery range and fudge shop.

The Greenville store will join 50 other locations nationwide and 23 new locations slated to open across the country in the next two years. Fort Mill, SC, will get a Cabela's store in spring 2015.
