In context: Once rivals and now partners, there was a time a few years ago when Bass Pro and Cabela’s were building stories within a few miles of each other. Bass Pro originally was announced as an anchor of LakePoint Sports in Emerson but Cabela’s quickly built a 100,000-square-foot store a few exits down I-75 in Acworth. The two later merged and the Bass Pro project evaporated. The same scenario took place in Fort Oglethorpe and East Ridge (Tenn.) and the item below shows the expected impact but a few years later.

No other operational changes are planned at this time, according to an update from Bass Pro, adding that two other stores will open soon.
