Augusta, GA -
People are lined up outside a new outdoor sporting goods store in Augusta.
Some even camped out in the parking lot of Cabela's Wednesday night.
The store, located at the Village at Riverwatch, will officially open its doors at 11:00 a.m. Thursday.
Some of the first shoppers through the door will receive gift cards, and there will be a special ribbon-cutting ceremony held before the store opens with an archer cutting the ribbon by shooting an arrow at the ribbon.
Cabela's will employ about 90 people.
We will update this story throughout the day Thursday, and we will have more on the store's opening during WJBF News Channel 6 at Noon.
