Bass Pro Shops To Build A Store In Victor

The outdoor retailer Bass Pro Shops is coming to Victor. The company announced Friday that it will build a 145,000 square foot store near the Thruway and Route 96, to be the primary anchor for Fishers Ridge, which is a 96-acre mixed use development.

It will be Bass Pro Shops third store in New York, as they now operate in Auburn and Utica.

It will be the first large format store for the company in the state and it will also feature “Uncle Buck’s Fishbowl and Grill." That is a nautical-themed center located within the store, offering 12 lanes to give customers a chance to feel like they are bowling under the ocean.

A few years ago, Bass Pro withdrew a plan to locate in downtown Buffalo.But it announced plans to open a store across the border at Niagara-on-the-Lake.

The Victor store is tentatively expected to open in 2016.
