Bass Pro Shop: When All is Given to Shopping Malls
When so many things in American shopping are giving way to shopping and strip malls, it's sometimes nice to find a superstore devoted to a narrower range of interests. In other words something like the Bass Pro Shops, or Cabela's of Minnesota. Of the original Bass Pro Shop in Springfield, Missouri, you'll find under this 300,000 sq foot emporium every imaginable product or service devoted to the out-of-doors. Fishing, footwear, golf, marine, camping, clothing, hunting, gifts, restaurants, aquariums, wildlife displays and motifs, and games galore all await you under one gigantic log cabin roof.Related to:
