Bass Pro adds Orlando store

Posted online

Bass Pro Shops will open yet another store, this time in Orlando, Fla. Belz Enterprises has announced the signing of Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World-Orlando as the anchor of its newest retail development, called "Festival Bay," according to a release from Bass Pro.

Festival Bay will be a 1,074,800-square-foot shopping destination in Orlando. The Bass Pro store will be 162,000 square feet.

"Festival Bay will offer a unique blend of lifestyle, retail and entertainment to Orlando," said Andrew Groveman, senior vice president of Belz Enterprises, in a release. "We've allocated 600,000 square feet to nationally recognized retailers, such as Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World, and 250,000 square feet to fashion-forward specialty retailers, entertainment components and a number of interactive restaurants," Belz stated.

The new Bass Pro store will be similar to the Springfield store and will have aquariums, waterfalls, streams and fish and wildlife mounts. The store will also have one of the world's largest fishing departments for freshwater, saltwater and fly fishing.

"Our company is very excited and grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the Belz Corporation's Festival Bay project," said John L. Morris, president and founder of Bass Pro Shops. "People in the Orlando area are truly outdoor enthusiasts, and we plan to offer them a vast selection of high- quality outdoor products at very competitive prices with expert service. The store will be staffed with highly skilled associates who have a passion for the outdoors."

Festival Bay is located across the street from Belz Designer Outlet and Belz Factory Outlet World-Orlando, the second largest tourist attraction in Orlando.
