    I heard a rumor a few days ago that there is a Bass Pro Shop opening up at the Mall of America. Anyone else heard anything about this? It would make sense cause then men would have a GOOD reason to go to MOA and spend some money.

    I heard it wasn’t gonna happen, afterall? For what it’s worth, I heard that from one of the customer service gals at Cabelas! I hope it’s true, I can get use to having them and Cabelas within driving distance!!!

    I also heard it isn’t going to happen. I think I heard the money fell through for the whole expansion at the MOA. It was supposed to double in size.

    If it falls through that’s a bummer. That would be the only reason for me to head out to the Mall. They built that darned thing on top of my ball park and I’m still mad about it.

    Kinda a rough place for a bass pro though hope they have enough sales if they move in there.

    Although it didn’t go down without a fight!
    I agree with both of you. I had more memories out there at the Met Stadium. Still remember the left field bleachers with Bambo Rivera in his light blue uniform.

    The store itself is still a go I believe. They were thinking of putting a lodge themed Radisson hotel on top of the store. Here is an article on it. I think the hotel financing is the part that is an issue. We should still get a BPS store at the Mall. Now I’ll finally have something to do while the wife is there. We’ll see who can burn the plastic faster.

    Come on guys that was a long time ago. We have a world class arena in the Excel. Which if the North Stars stayed they surely would not be playing at the Met still. Don’t get me wrong Norm was a hole for what he did. And the Twinkies are getting a brand new ballpark which should be awesome. Only bad thing no tailgating at the park!!! So bring on Bass Pro Shops!!!! Oh yeah did I mention I live 5 minutes from the mall

    Are you bragging, or Complaining

    Farmboy,
    Bragging that I am 5 minutes to Bass Pro Shops. Complaining that I live in such a urban setting. So I guess, both.

    I hear that it is still going to happen. It is also listed in the newest catalog that I got last week.

    Building one in the mall means fighting all that traffic and all those thousands of women who shop there. Why not build one in a place thats easy to get into and out of like they did the Cabelas store at Owatonna, Mn. It would make more sense to me anyway. I’m one of those guys who hates fighting traffic.
    Thanks, Bill

    Hey Bill,
    Us guys need a place to go when we get stuck going to the mall with the ladies. So instead of getting thrown into the dog house, we can say sure honey I will go. And when we get there we can make a beeline to Bass Pro Shops.

    Oldrat, please don’t expose yourself on the forum

    I would like to sit in on some of the meetings (city level) to hear what is actually being discussed for rezoning, tax breaks , … and everything involved to get a box store of this size approved. Seems like there has been a number of proposed locations throughout the mid-west that receives some interest, then falls off the radar. I’ve heard a few through the rumor mill for WI.
