The official ground breaking ceremony for the new Bass Pro Shop happened on Friday and is set to open by Thanksgiving 2011 in Harlingen.
Many city officials and Bass Pro enthusiasts attended the event which has been in the works for the last four years. Research showed that the store has a big following and the closest location was in San Antonio. The store expects to service many customers from all over South Texas in the City of Harlingen. On top of the large aquariums and animal displays, a full restaurant and even a bowling alley will be built inside the store.
