Bass Pro Shops has announced plans for a new destination retail superstore in Alton Marketplace in Irvine, California. The 140,000-square-foot store is expected to open in late 2022 or early 2023,
Alton Marketplace sits squarely within one of the most desirable retail locations in North America. Located in the heart of Irvine near the junction of the I-5 and the I-405, more than 425,000 vehicles pass this location daily. More than 16.8 million people—nearly 5.6 million households—reside within a 60-mile radius of the store. This highly accessible, centrally located superstore is anticipated to attract customers from throughout the region.
The new Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World destination superstore will offer the region’s most comprehensive selection of premier outdoor gear at low prices and with industry leading, friendly, expert service.
More than just a fishing and hunting store, the retail destination will offer equipment and clothing for all outdoor adventures, including hiking, backpacking, wildlife viewing, camping and other related outdoor gear. A gift and nature center will feature a wide variety of outdoor-related items, from lamps and dishes to bird feeders and furniture. Men’s, ladies’ and children’s apparel sections will offer a wide assortment of brands, including RedHead, TrueTimber, ASCEND, Worldwide Sportsman, Bob Timberlake and Natural Reflections, along with popular national brands such as Columbia, North Face, Under Armour and more for greater selection, quality and value. Bass Pro Shops’ unique ability to provide the most comprehensive selection of premium outdoor gear anywhere in the world is not only a brand trademark, but also an offering well suited to the active Southern California lifestyle.
In addition to providing customers with the outdoor products they love, the store will offer an immersive experience hand-crafted by a team of talented artists and craftsmen. The signature creativity and attention to detail are hallmarks of every project crafted by Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris, who is often referred to as “The Walt Disney of the Outdoors” for his passion for creating awe-inspiring experiences that connect people with nature.
Unique exterior and interior motifs have branded Bass Pro Shops as visually appealing, high-quality outdoor retail destinations that customers love. In addition to providing a fun outdoor experience indoors, Bass Pro Shops locations feature large aquariums and water features stocked with native fish species, thousands of local antiques and artifacts, hundreds of trophy fish and wildlife dioramas, and murals depicting local outdoor scenes.
