Bass Pro Shop is considering Altoona
The report I heard said Bass Pro Shop could bring in 2 million customers per year.

I often go to the Sportsman Warehouse in Ankeny for my fishing supplies but BPS has everything I need!

I hope the city approves it.

I would like to see Altoona open a Petco. Newton doesn't have the population to sustain one, and I'm tired of driving to WDM. Anyone know a City Council person or Chamber person?

I don't have information for a City Council person - but there is a Petco off of i-235 near the Windsor Hgts. area ... this is a little bit closer than West Des Moines for you. Another place that is closer, and very similar is Petsmart - the closest one to you would be in Ankeny off of Delaware.

Back on topic - does anyone have current news on the Bass Pro Shop, like where it's going to be located and when they will start?

According to the city website The store is tentatively scheduled to open early 2009.

There is a Petco by Southridge Mall also. Hop on the 65 bypass from Altoona and it's much closer than WDM.

Thanks for the Petco locales!

Heard that it is NOT a for sure thing.(Bass Pro) Seems to be a "glitch" about something.

Bass Pro must be coming. Was by there today and saw heavy equipment waiting to be unloaded. Semi trailer dressed up as Bass Pro along with a regular sign on the lot.
