I was reading in the paper today that Bass Pro Shops is still planning on building in Decatur. An attorney who is working with the developers says that his clients hope to begin construction this year. I got to see this to believe it! This has been in the works since August 2008. I am not going to get my hopes up just yet. When i see dirt moved then i will.

I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not. Last time we walked into one of those stores to buy one article of clothing, we came out $500 poorer! (No, the one article of clothing did not cost that much.. we just ended up buying way more than we planned!)

I know what you mean... last time I went in there to buy some hooks, I ended up buying fishing lines (fluorocarbon), reel, rod and lures $200 later...




.... but I stopped myself when it comes to the boat !

If they sell boats I'm going to have to stay away.

It's actually been in the works much longer than that. They were initially trying to build in Florence but thanks to the great city leaders we had at the time they couldn't agree on the tax incentives to bring them here. Plus the property is on the lake therefore TVA had some say in it as well and at the time they wouldn't agree. Now TVA has many properties for sale over here. Anywhere in North Alabama would be great, good luck I hope they build there. Only an hour drive for me!

Interesting. They usually build on an interstate.

I was referring to missjob4me's statement. Florence has no interstate highway.

The site is in Decatur. Decatur's city limits go out to the west side of I-65.

I agree tho...a Bass Pro in florence wouldnt have been a good idea. Without an interstate it would be a mess. Decatur is a good location tho. It will help build up that part of decatur along the interstate.
