I'm working at the BASS Pro Shop in the hunting department and I can tell you that the opening on the 13th of Nov will be a real event.

And there is aisle after aisle after aisle of every kind of fishing gear you can imagine....easily the best stocked store withing many miles. Electronic shooting arcade, big bass tank for lure demos, a little stocked lake out back, and an indoor archery room.

I was at the sneak preview there last night for family and friends- I was really impressed- there is a huge selection of stuff, I really didn't have time to check it all out but it is a really nice store.

Hey Wilbur,

Spring for a really nice dinner, and mention all the really nice women's clothes that are on the opening sale....

Watched them put the catfish, bluegill, white bass, pickerel, and a big strange looking one I think called a bowfin in the tank today, so feeding times should be pretty cool to watch.

Hey AL

As per my conversation with the wife last night, "I had better rethink that Idea". So made reservations at nice eatin' place and going to a show afterwards.
Then we both go to Bass Pro the next day, this way I will have a lot of Good Points built up and can spend freely.

Here (in Richmond) at Greentop there is a cash machine located right inside the door. Bass pro might just have a back room where you can sign over the title to your house like in vegas casinos!

I read on that 'other board', someone got an early tour of the inside and the FRESH water section is bigger than the saltwater.:jawdrop: I thought they would've figured that one out.

:rolleyes:


I'll still be there the first chance I get.:cool:

i think if it is smaller that after a couple months of being open they will adjust the inventory to match the demand...they prob have a standard way to open a new store and then adjust to the locals taste in time.

Let me guess.......you're applying for the position of manager in training?:rolleyes:

Hope you get the job. Input from locals, especially one who is so knowledgeable as yourself, might go far where influence is concerned.:cool:

Should make for one interesting pre employment interview :jawdrop:........being that your prospective boss might already know you're eyeing his job.:eek:
