Bass Pro Shops is expanding their Springfield-area workforce.
The company is closing a Cabela’s operation in Sidney, Nebraska and transferring 120 jobs to the Springfield, Missouri “Base Camp.”
Employees were offered the chance to move to Springfield to keep their positions within the company. Those who chose not to make the move to Springfield will be given severance pay and outplacement pay.
Cabela’s headquarters in Sidney, Nebraska once housed 2,000 employees before Bass Pro bought the company in 2017. Less than 300 jobs will remain at the Sidney location.
