Bass Pro Shops plans New Jersey location


Bass Pro Shops announced that it will open a store at Luxury Point, one of the largest new mixed-use developments in the United States, in Sayreville, N.J.

The new 200,000-square-foot Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World will be at Garden State Parkway and Chevalier Avenue and is scheduled to open in 2015. About 400,000 cars a day directly pass the site and, with more than 15 million people within a 50-mile radius, the company predicts that the store will be its highest-sales-volume location to date.

Luxury Point, just 30 miles from Manhattan and minutes away from Staten Island, will center around a 1.2 million-square-foot luxury mall and 723,000-square-foot entertainment district encompassing luxury retail, waterfront and recreation destinations, along with 2,000 high-end residential units, office space, high-end hotels and two luxury marinas.

The 8 million-square-foot development also will include waterfront dining, a community center, bike trails, walking paths and abundant green and open space, including a waterfront promenade.

“We are excited about this location and very grateful to developer Brian O’Neill and his family for selecting Bass Pro Shops to be the premier anchor tenant in what may well be one of the most exciting new retail developments in the world,” Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris said in a statement. “This highly visible location is easily accessible and will allow us to bring Bass Pro Shops’ low prices and famous friendly service to the many sportsmen and women in the region.”
