Cabela's, the retail giant whose presence thrilled Moncton so much it named a street after the store, closed Thursday after less than three years in the city. The hunting, fishing and outdoor gear retailer believes it can "better serve" its customers in the region with the existing Bass Pro Shops location in neighbouring Dieppe and the new Halifax-area Cabela's store, scheduled to open this spring, said Cabela's Incorporated spokesman Nathan Borowski. "We have no plans to close any other Canadian locations for the foreseeable future," he said in an emailed statement.
