Whenever I watch Last Man Standing I will usually think of Bass Pro Shops.
Bass Pro Shops did not open a second location until 1997. Their second location was at Gurnee Mills near Chicago.
The picture above is from the Bass Pro Shops in Manteca, California which is the closest one to me. I really like the large tree at the entry.
Whenever I go to Bass Pro Shops I spend more time browsing through the store looking at the displays, dioramas and animals than actually shopping. I usually know just what I want to buy when I go, but it takes a long time.
I will also admit that sometimes I just go to look at the displays.
This also brings back memories of a warehouse that Bass Pro Shops had open to the public sometime back in the 90’s. They had hundreds of animals and hunting items roughly sorted into groups. You could walk through and browse through them. Some had signs with details, but it really depended on where they were acquired from. I am sure that many of these items went to the early stores when they started to expand across the country.
Lots of memories…
