So, has the whole economic meltdown brought the Hooksett, NH, Cabela's project to a standstill? I was on 3A Monday and noticed that the real estate sign on the fence of the Palazzi site still only says "Under Agreement" like it has for years. Anyone have any accurate info?

My understanding was it got voted in but something after the fact killed it. This was about a year ago though so I forget the specifics.

Between Riley's, Al's, and Lee's, I get pretty much what I want.

And if you need more, it's only 45 minutes to Skip's in Bristol (well worth the drive).

I agree that the existing dealers we have in central New Hampshire are great.

I wasn't asking from the "WOW-WEE, it's a Cabela's" standpoint. I was curious about the economic impact on the Hooksett area since it was also supposed to include a hotel and other retail operations.

Oh wow, I didn't know there would be more than Cabelas.

Was it going to be on that main drag? Route 3A I think like Rileys?

Love that place, unfortunately it's about 8 minutes from work so I'm in there a few times a week at lunch!

Riley's is on Rte. 3 on the east side of the river. The access to Cabelas was to be from I-93, Exit 11 (Toll Booth) on the west side and then right on Hackett Hill Rd. or turn up the hill from Rte. 3A toward I-93, but go straight instead of turning right to the toll booth.

No, considerably north of there. Sort of up the hill toward I-93 across from my favorite hockey rink/dental clinic:

In the Union Leader today it said that Cabela's backed out, but Bass Pro might fill the spot. Never been to a Bass Pro, but my brother in law from down south says they are good.

That's a real shame, I had really hoped for a tax free Cabela's.
