Outdoor retailer snubs us

Big announcement from Bass Pro Shops recently: A store is still not coming to the Augusta area. Instead, it will build stores in Emerson, Ga., and St. Johns County, Fla.

Our economy still must be the worst in the Southeast – at least that’s the story it sounded like Bass Pro gave before putting the plans for a local store on hold several years ago. Maybe it thinks nobody wants Bass Pro to build here.

If they decide not to build here, we can always try to get a Cabela’s. The last I checked, it doesn’t have any stores in the South. Maybe the Augusta area will be its first.

I was pretty disappointed.

But hey, who needs 'em? We've got Sports Academy, Sports Authority, Dicks, and a whole skad of mom and pop, gun stores/pawn shops. America, don't ya just love it?
