Bass Pro plans new store near STL

Posted online

Springfield-based outdoor retailer Bass Pro Shops announced plans for its third store in the St. Louis area.

The 75,000-square-foot store in Sunset Hills is scheduled to open in the second half of 2022, according to a news release.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to open a brand new store in our home state of Missouri,” Bass Pro founder Johnny Morris said in the release, adding "the St. Louis area is home to incredibly passionate sportsmen and women who love the outdoors as much as we do."

Located a mile from the intersection of interstates 44 and 270, the project involves a redevelopment of former Toys R Us and Ross Dress for Less stores into a Bass Pro Outpost.

In addition to outdoor gear and Tracker vehicles, the store also will house an aquarium with native fish, according to the release.

Grant Mechlin and Mark Kornfeld, managing directors at Sansone Group, are representing the project on behalf of the landlord.

“Bass Pro Shops will greatly complement the surrounding retail and make this city a regional destination for years to come,” Kornfeld said in the release.

Bass Pro operates 169 stores in the United States and Canada, according to its website.
