The 101/85 site isn't the only property Bass Pro bought in the area, either. They are going to widen I85 to 4 lanes from Pelham Rd through 101. I was skeptical of development too, but this article from GreenvilleOnline has me convinced it is still on the way. The #1 issue now seems to be road development around the site. The I85 widening will likely happen after the site has already opened.
IDK. Just sounds like corporate talk at this point. Why are they possibly interested in Cabelas stores if they are so different? They say all that now but if they acquire Cabelas it could be a different story. Don't see them operating two stores that close. We have seen this time and time again. One chain acquires another and they start shuttering stores that are close competing. Part of the problem now is too many stores in that category in the same markets and is why Cabelas is exploring their options.

They've added a direct off ramp from i85 S straight onto the property the other week!....but I think that had to do more with the ice then SCDOT or BP...

Would adding the off ramp be a sign of ground breaking or beginning of construction?

I think it would be related to storing equipment used in the repaving of Interstate 85 around mile marker 60.

I was just referring to the ice from the other week...someone took out several sections of fence with their car/truck, so you could just walk right onto the property from the 85s off ramp now. Nothing official.

it's rather embarrassing to announce something 2 years ago and then do absolutely nothing.

Nothing new with Bass Pro. They do it all the time. Just look at Charleston and Augusta. They didn't get their stores either. Cabela's on the other end builds what they promise.

What is the latest news on BPS? Are they still planning to put a BPS on 101/I85?
