Encouraging News for Memphis and Bass Pro

Posted By on Wed, Oct 26, 2011 at 11:42 AM

The Bass Pro Shops in the Pyramid could be on the leading edge of a retail trend in shopping malls.

A story in Wednesday's Wall Street Journal says that shopping centers are drawing visitors by turning to unusual tenants like gun ranges and special features such as aquariums. Malls are suffering from online shopping and stores that have lost their mojo or gone out of business.

The Bass Pro Pyramid, scheduled to open in 2013, will have an indoor swamp and lots of demonstration areas. Whatever your opinion of the chase and financing for this downtown deal, Bass Pro stores are fun to visit. But I wonder if it will attract many female shoppers.
