The plan to bring a Bass Pro Shops to Bakersfield is moving forward, making it the fifth in the state of California. 

The outdoor retailer specializing in hunting, fishing, camping, and other outdoor activities plans to create a 100,000 square-foot store in Bakersfield. 

The store is expected to be located in the newly completed interchange at State Route 99 and Hosking Avenue. The plan is to have the new space serve as a 800,000 mixed-use retail development. 

"We are very excited to be the lead anchor tenant for this innovative new development that is sure to have such a positive impact on Bakersfield, one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States," said conservationist and Bass Pro Shops founder/CEO Johnny Morris.
