Bill Dance helps Memphis welcome Bass Pro Shops
WREG Memphis - Bill Dance was a featured speaker at today's ground-breaking for the new Bass Pro Shops in Memphis. Bill and BPS founder Johnny Morris told an interesting story about how the decision was made to select the iconic Memphis Pyramid as a location for the new store.
(Memphis) It may not become the biggest Bass Pro Shop in the world, but they say it will be the tallest and the grandest.
“We think this is going to be one of the most amazing retail stores that could ever be,” said Johnny Morris, the Founder of Bass Pro Shops.
The shop is going to be larger than four football fields, with zip lines, an island and a 3-story hotel circling the store front.
“You will see things you`ve never seen before in a sporting goods store,” said Dance. “You might see gigantic Cyprus trees here 70 feet tall. You may see a river running through here with alligators in it.”
And to think, it all started with a fisherman and friend on the Mississippi River.
