This is Getting Interesting

You'll recall that Cabela's will be opening a store here in 2014. Today, it's announced that Bass Pro Shops will be opening a 100,000 sq.ft. store next spring.

We're going from few choices, to many. This is going to be fun.

It's like being a kid in a candy store. Options....to many options.

Wow. You guys are really moving into the 20th century!:-)

You lucky booger you...we have just one, Gander Mountain. This just sucks.

Sandy ... yes, indeed. When we got here 10 years ago, there was Wal-Mart & Sam's Club. Of course there were local gun stores, but no BIG ones.

PH, true. Reluctantly, it seems. :^)

Stephen, I understand. Bass Pro & Cabela's both said they're opening here because of all the on-line business from Alaska.

I'm going to buy stock in both these companies. If they are opening near you, their profits are bound to go up, UP, UP!

joated, I guarantee the Anchorage stores will be their #1 retailer for at least the first three months of operation. (That has nothing to do with me, though.)
