Bass Pro Shops is opening a new store in Harlingen, Texas.

The store, which will be the company's  57th outdoor superstore in the U.S., will be 130,000 to 150,000 square feet and is tentatively scheduled to open in the late second quarter or early third quarter of 2011.

An expansive boat showroom will feature Tracker, Nitro, Mako and SunTracker boats built by Tracker Marine Group. A boat service center will also be available.

"We are excited about locating one of our Outdoor World destination stores in the Rio Grande Valley to better serve our many customers in the region," said Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris. "Harlingen is a terrific regional location for a store that will highlight the great heritage and outdoor traditions of the families and visitors to the area."
