KALISPELL, Mont. - A new superstore opening in the Flathead is helping to improve the troubled economy, and drop the unemployment rate that's already been improving.
Nearly 125 jobs are available to Flathead County residents right now as outdoor gear giant Cabela's is accepting applications.
Bill Nelson of the Flathead Job Service says they've been working with Cabela's to add the postings to their service. Nelson hopes to add more jobs to their list of postings.
"It's the best we've seen in five years," said Nelson. "Since the recession it's the most jobs we've had in several years. I just encourage anyone who may be seeking a job or unemployed and looking for anything really to come in and see us."
Cabela's anticipates opening in the beginning of August and is hoping to fill as many of those positions as possible before then.
