Company says nearly 120 Sidney jobs moving to Missouri


SIDNEY, Neb. (AP) – Bass Pro Shops says nearly 120 jobs at its Cabela’s
operation in Sidney will be relocated to Bass Pro Shops’ headquarters in
Springfield, Missouri.

The company announced Wednesday employees who choose not to move to
Springfield will be offered severance and outplacement aid.

Company spokesman Jack Wlezien says the relocation is “consistent with the
company’s long-term commitment to efficiently provide the highest level of
service.”

It’s not clear how many jobs will remain in Sidney. A news release Wlezien
shared Thursday didn’t address the issue, and he didn’t immediately answer
Associated Press questions.

Cabela’s once employed around 2,000 people in Sidney before it was bought by Bass Pro Shops. The deal was completed in September 2017.
