Bass Pro changes up plans in Texas

Posted online

Bass Pro Shops is switching up its plans for a previously announced store in Texas.

The Springfield-based outdoor retailer now intends to build its 17th Texas store in Odessa, instead of Midland, with a larger footprint, according to a news release.

Bass Pro a year ago announced it would build an Outpost store in Midland, with an expected opening date in late 2024, according to past reporting. Odessa and Midland are in the same metropolitan area.

The company now is planning a 100,000-square-foot Outdoor World, larger than its previously planned 65,000-square-foot location in the market, according to the release.

“We have a great deal of passion for the entire Permian Basin Region and the amazing range of outdoor recreation options it offers,” Bass Pro founder Johnny Morris said in the release. “This new location in Odessa will allow us to strengthen our relationship with the sportsmen and women of the great state of Texas, and will make it easy for people and families across the plains of West Texas to spend time together in the great outdoors. For that we are deep down proud and excited."

Bass Pro is partnering with ICA Development for the store that's now expected to open in spring 2025.

Bass Pro currently has 171 stores, according to its website.
