Default About Time for NH

NH will Finally be getting what it has needed for a long time
Bass Pro shops is coming to Hooksett NH by the end of the year
not just a Bass Pro but a 149,000 sqft Mega store no more 2 hour dive to Taxachusetts (Massachusetts)
Will now be about 40 min Hmmm wonder if I could work there part time for store credit instead of a paycheck
I know when my wife finds out I will lose my credit card

20 minutes to Bass Pro and 40 minutes to Cabela's, Have a Gander Mountain in town too. My cousin was the purchaser for the Dundee Cabelas, retired from General Motors and the from Cabelas after 10 years. I actually like Bass Pro over Cabelas.

TG is that the one in Auburn?
this is the one we stop at every year on our way to hunting camp
only time I get to go to bass pro untill the end of this year
when we get ours
HM I have been a fan for bass pro but swapped card to Cabelas because the Cabela's in Maine was easier to get to then the Bass pro
in Mass. (have to go through Boston) and Cabela points don't expire like Bass pro but now that won't matter as I will probably be there once a week

I don't have any of the "awesome" stores near me, the nearest Bass Pro will by the one gfd is speaking about, Nearest Cabela's is 245 miles away in Connecticut.
We do have a Gander Mountain in Plattsburgh NY which is about a 1-1/2 hr. ride not sure how many miles it is, I do have a Dick's "over-priced" sporting goods store only 2 miles away
but I refuse to spend my money in there I'd rather buy from Wal-Mart which is also only 2 miles away, if Wally world doesn't have it, I just shop the internet.

Yes in Auburn. I don't know how big most Bass Pros are but I think that store is real huge. I like the aquarium thing in there too.

TG
Auburn is actually on the low end of the average size store I think that one is about 80,000 sqft but it is a nice store. They do have a very nice aquarium setup
their smallest store is 42,000 & headquarters is 300,000 sqft
