Sun Prairie is set to see yet another development go up in its already-booming commercial district this spring.
Cabela's announced it will open an 86,000 sq. ft. store and indoor archery range in the coming months on Grand Avenue in Sun Prairie. The opening will bring about 200 open positions to the area - a demand for jobs the community can meet, according to Director of Economic Development Neil Stechschulte.
"For those 200 positions, I'm guessing they'll have 500-600 applications," he says of the store opening.
Cabela's is just the latest in a series of developments that have come to the east side of the county. According to Stechschulte, Sun Prairie has been the fastest-growing community in Dane County for years.
Now, the commercial corner of town is starting to catch up - Stechschulte estimates more than 1 million square feet of development is in construction or in planning throughout the city.
