ROCKLIN, Calif. - Bass Pro Shops, an outdoor retailer specializing in hunting, fishing, camping and other related outdoor gear, is proud to announce plans for a new store in Rocklin, California. 

The 120,000 -square-foot store, which will feature an Uncle Buck's Fishbowl and Grill, will be located at the intersection of Interstate 80 and Sierra College Boulevard.  The store will be a primary anchor for the 500,000-square-foot, mixed-use Rocklin Crossings development. 

The store is scheduled to open in 2015.

This will be the company's fourth store in California.  Currently, Bass Pro Shops operates stores in Rancho Cucamonga and Manteca, Calif.  They recently announced a new store locating in San Jose.

"We are honored to be one of the anchors for the new Rocklin Crossings-one of the largest, and most exciting retail developments in this area.  Placing our store at this highly visible location on I-80 will allow us to bring Bass Pro Shops low prices and famous friendly, expert service to better serve the many sportsmen, women, as well as the visitors to this area each year," said Johnny Morris, founder of Bass Pro Shops.

Rocklin, which is located in Placer County, is part of the Sacramento metropolitan area.  It's situated between the western base of the Sierra Nevada Mountain range and the Sacramento Valley.   The history of the area can be traced back to California's gold rush days.  The Bass Pro Shops at the Rocklin Crossings site will draw from an extended region along the I-80 corridor to accommodate the outlying suburban and rural customers in addition to those en route to the area's many outdoor opportunities.

"We are very excited that Bass Pro Shops has selected our Rocklin Crossings development to be one of their first Northern California locations.  We can't wait for them to open," said Dave Mossman, Executive Vice President-Chief Investment Officer of Donahue Schriber, developer of Rocklin Crossings.

Nationally, Bass Pro Shops will host more than 116 million people visiting their 84 stores and marine centers across America and Canada this year.  The average customer stays 2 1/2 hours and drives an average distance of 50+ miles.  Bass Pro Shops was named by Advertising Age magazine as one of the Top 10 Hottest Brands in America along with name brands such as Old Spice, M&M's, iPad and Droid.  Also, Bass Pro Shops has been recognized numerous times for their conservation and outdoor education efforts, as well as being recognized by J.D. Powers & Associates for their customer service excellence.

"We are thrilled that Bass Pro Shops will be coming to Rocklin," said Rocklin Mayor Scott Yuill. 

"Once opened, Bass Pro Shops will attract visitors and outdoor enthusiasts throughout Northern California and beyond.  We look forward to working with the team through design and construction and having Bass Pro Shops as part of the Rocklin community for years to come."

Bass Pro Shops unique, award-winning, mega-sized outdoor stores are known for combining retail with entertainment, conservation and outdoor education. More than just a fishing and hunting store, the Bass Pro Shops store will also offer equipment and clothing for hiking, backpacking, wildlife viewing, camping, and other related outdoor gear.  A gift and nature center features a wide variety of outdoor-related items from lamps and dishes to bird feeders and furniture.
