How did I miss this? According to Google Maps, Bass Pro is already in Buffalo! It’s right over there on Clinton near Pine. Click here to see where it is. Apparently, if enough people simply talk about something for enough years, it takes on a kind of reality in the wacky world of the Web. Then just take the imaginary light rail car over there and pick up a new set of invisible waders.
Question: Which one of our community leaders will be the first to step up and take credit for this impressive accomplishment?
For more laughs, read this 2004 press announcement still available on the Bass Pro Web site…
Buffalo, NY-November 29, 2004-Bass Pro Shops, America’s most popular outdoor store, today announced they have agreed to be part of a huge development in Buffalo’s historical Memorial Auditorium known affectionately as “The Aud”. The New York State Urban Development Corporation, County of Erie, City of Buffalo and Bass Pro Shops have all joined together to make this project happen…
The Bass Pro Shops store will be approximately 250,000 square feet and will anchor the project that also includes a museum/interpretive center, hotel and a themed full-service restaurant. Future waterfront re-development will include an intermodal transportation center, specialty shops and more.
