Bass Pro Shops announced Friday (June 15) it will be part of a new 169-acre Gateway Town Center development in Little Rock which will also include an outlet mall, according to developer Tommy Hodges.

The location is off Interstate 30 and Interstate 430 in southwest Little Rock. Bass Pro said the Little Rock investment could create about 250 jobs.

“We have reached a firm agreement and will start infrastructure work later this summer with the new 120,000 square foot store, expected to open in time for Christmas next year,” said Hodges. “I am just as pleased and excited as I can be because I feel there is no other retailer in America like Bass Pro Shops.”

More than 8 years ago, Bass Pro announced it would be part of a North Little Rock mall development led by real estate mogul Bruce Burrow. However, the mall never came to fruition. Click here to read the full story from our partners at TheCityWire.com.
