A Better Mid-South: Bass Pro Shops worth the wait

A Better Mid-South: Bass Pro Shops worth the wait

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Editorial by WMC Action News 5 General Manager Tracey Rogers:

I'm beginning to think the Bass Pro Shops take over of the Pyramid may actually be worth the wait.

If you have lived in the Mid-South for any amount of time, you know we have been waiting for the Bass Pro Shop to become a reality for several years.

I think a lot of folks started saying, "I'll believe it when I see it." Finally, we are starting to see it, and it's coming on in a big way.

Today, dates for the Bass Pro Shops job fair were announced and they need to fill more than 600 full and part-time positions. The mega-store is set to open in May of this year and hopefully that date will hold.

This is a big deal for the Mid-South and a big deal for Bass Pro Shops. It's shaping up to be a win-win for everyone involved.

Did you ever think you would see the day that Bass Pro actually opened in the Pyramid? Tell me about it at abettermidsouth@wmctv.com or like my Facebook page, A Better Mid-South and leave a message there.

Bass Pro Shops bringing jobs to the Mid-South will make this A Better Mid-South.
