Bass Pro Shops will open a new 85,000 square foot outlet near Interstate 75 in East Ridge.

The outdoor retailer, which specializes in hunting, fishing, camping and other related outdoor gear, announced the new store and said the shop will open in 2016. The Bass Pro outlet will be the primary anchor for the new Wolftever development.

This will be the company's sixth store in Tennessee as they currently operate three stores in the state; while new locations are under construction at the Memphis Pyramid, and Bristol.

"Having the opportunity to build a super outdoor store directly fronting I-75 will allow us to bring Bass Pro Shops low prices and famous friendly, expert service to serve the many sportsmen, women as well as the visitors to this area each year," said Johnny Morris, founder of Bass Pro Shops. "This retail attraction will be a tribute to the great sporting tradition and heritage of the region and a celebration of the sporting men and women of Tennessee."
