TUALATIN, Ore. (KOIN 6) — A local woman claimed the first spot in line on Tuesday for the grand opening of the new Cabela’s store in Tualatin.

The outdoor store, where Kmart used to be located just off of Interstate 5, opens on Thursday.

Lisa Ezell got in line for the grand opening two days before the big event at 9 a.m. on Tuesday.

“My husband called when I was at the gym. He told me, ‘hey, I heard there’s (sic) 500 people who get something at Cabela’s. Get in line, ok?’ So, here I am,” she said.

Ezell added that her husband will be staying in a tent with her outside the store at night and then going to work in the mornings.

Store managers said earlier this month that they expect Cabela’s to draw 1 million visitors from several states.

Doors open at 11 a.m. on Thursday.
