Opening Date for Bass Pro Pyramid Store

Posted:

Construction to turn the pyramid into a Bass Pro Shop superstore is set to begin.

The sporting retailer has been negotiating with the City of Memphis for the former arena for more than six years. Crews will start work in October to adapt the pyramid into a massive delta-inspired fishing-themed store.

The City of Memphis and the outdoor company have apparently agreed on the costs for stabilizing the arena.

Making the pyramid stable in case of earthquakes has been a major sticking point.

The scheduled opening date is August 1st, 2013.
