Bass Pro Shop Opens On It's First Full Day of Business
HARLINGEN - It was a big day for outdoor lovers as Bass Pro Shop held it's grand opening on Thursday.
It was the first full day of business for the store and General Manager Homer Saenz hopes the store will have a positive impact on the local economy. "More than anything, being able to serve the community. It has been quite a while since we have had a venue like this, out employees being able to showcase what they have done for the past two months. We had a great turnout last night and as you can see today, has been the same thing. We have been able to support the community, there has been a lack of jobs so being able to come in this community and impact 425 employees is just a great thing."
Saenz estimates that the store will attract more than 10,000 people within the first two days of business.
