The first-ever “bass pro shop” will open its doors to the public at the NAB on Friday.
Bass ProShop is a non-profit, non-exclusive retail store that focuses on bringing Bass Pro to the world.
The store is currently in the process of relocating from Los Angeles to Los Angeles, and will now open a new, 100,000 square foot, fully functional shop in Los Angeles.
“We’re going to have some new people there to try the new stuff,” CEO Mark Davis said.
“We have some of the best brands in the industry.”
Davis and co-founder Chris Mouldin announced a number of new collaborations in the last year, including a partnership with Kinkos.com.
The two also announced that they were launching a new shoe and apparel line for Bass Pro.
Bass ProShop will have its own website, store and store-specific YouTube channel, and Davis is planning to stream live from the shop.
The first-floor shop will feature Bass Pro shop-specific merchandise and a large Bass Pro booth.
Davis has said that the shop will be open daily, with limited hours, so that people can walk into the shop and be on the ball with their purchase.
While the Bass Pro brand will remain on the site, the shop itself will not be the same.
A new website and new app will launch in the coming weeks, and the shop is also planning to open its own Instagram account.
Here’s a look at the new store, which is expected to open on Friday: “BassProShop is one of the most important brands in our world, and we are excited to be a part of the BassPro brand and its future,” Davis said in a statement.
“The store will feature exclusive, pre-order items that have been made in-house at the store, as well as a wide range of other products and accessories.
We have partnered with a number top brands to bring you the best in Bass Pro products, including Nike, Jordan, Puma, Reebok, Nike Zoom, Nike Air, Rees, Nike+ and more.”
You can pre-register for the store online, and you can also shop at the site.
As for when the Bass Shop will open, Davis told The Hollywood Reporter, “I think it’s going to open at the beginning of next year.
There’s no date yet, but we’re going with the beginning in 2017.”
The site will be free to the general public, and anyone can browse through the Bass Store.
