Rapid City Cabela's News

According to the Rapid City Journal, Cabela's will be hiring as many as 150 sales associates to man/woman their new store. Beginning next week, Tuesday, April 22nd, thru Saturday, April 26th, anyone interested in becoming apart of the sales staff can apply. The store is going to be managed by the company's first ever female general manager by the name of Mary Bollock. She has been apart of the Cabela's experience since 2000 as an associate in the hunting department of the only other store in South Dakota , located at Mitchell. She has held various positions in her lifetime. Before starting with the Cabela's company she was a member of the air national guard and held the distinction of "first female weapons loader" in South Dakota. She worked with her husband in a family business before working as a supervisor for the Boyd's Gun stock factory in Mitchell. She is an avid hunter and fisher woman, bringing her hobby skills with her into the job, as do many of her co-workers. Mary, was quoted as saying"I am thrilled to be leading a team of dedicated employees in one of the most beautiful parts of the country." In my opinion she sounds like a positive influence in the world of the hunting supplier... Cabela's.

simplyoutdoors - The opening of the Rapid City store is ever so much closer than the hole in the ground I saw last September.

Trying to figure out how I can arrange to get out there.

Not to be biased but I do gather from her Bio information - Mary Bollock has leadership qualities, and a positive outlook. That is important in being a persuasive guide.

Hopefully you will get a chance to go out there. We love our Cabelas. We were there again this past weekend.

I hope Mary Bollock has much success with the new store.
