ACWORTH, GA (CBS46) -

Hundreds of hunting, fishing and camping enthusiasts gathered in Cherokee County Thursday for the grand opening of the new Cabela's store.

Cabela's is one of the nation's leading retailers of outdoor gear. Its new 100,000-square-foot store, located just off Interstate 75 on Highway 92 near Acworth, employs 200 people.

The highlight of the grand opening was a ribbon being cut by an arrow shot from a bow.

Opening day kicks off a weekend-long celebration highlighted by special appearances, family events and giveaways.

The store's layout includes museum-quality wildlife displays, a large mountain replica, a gun library, bargain cave, boat shop, indoor archery range, and deli and fudge shop.

The new Cabela's store was featured Thursday on Better Mornings Atlanta.
