Thumbs up 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?

alrightythen:
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?

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

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.
