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:

Cracker Barrel country store: Cracker Barrel country store
Cracker Barrel restaurants look the part of an old country store and they really are. At the entrance of each restaurant is an old country store. All manner of food products, old Coca-Cola signs and bottles, as well as old-style toys and games are sold. It is a clever gimmick because when there is a wait for tables, browsing occupies your time.
