The Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid has a million reasons to celebrate.

Both inside and outside the massive sporting goods store, there's lots of excitement about Bass Pro and how it's attracting people from around the country.

"I think it's the best thing that ever happened to Memphis," said Memphian Donna Brown. "I really do."

Bass Pro just released the news that a million people have visited the store since its grand opening in April.

"It's an amazing experience," said Jasmine Gray. "If you are a hunter, sportsman, anything outdoors, the lake, that's truly the place to go."

According to turnstile data, the millionth customer visited the Pyramid on Wednesday, July 8.

Some feel that Bass Pro's attendance success could mean financial success for Memphis.

"I think it's pretty good because you know, it brings money to the economy, helps out," said Michael Farris.

Bass Pro Shops officials said an enthusiastic Memphis and positive word of mouth from visitors both help attendance.

Leaders added that they are still looking for opportunities to expand the Pyramid location, but all plans are in preliminary stages at this time.
