Today’s official grand opening of the new Bass Pro Shops Outpost in Niles, OH, includes an “Evening for Conservation.”

The retailer invited the greater Northeastern Ohio community to the ribbon-cutting ceremony and weekend-long event for the retailer’s seventh store in the state, highlighted by fishing and hunting celebrity appearances, family activities, and other planned events.

The 93,000-square-foot space sells gear, clothing and accessories for fishing, hunting, camping, and boating.

“We are thrilled to open a brand-new store in Northeastern Ohio, home to incredibly passionate sportsmen and women who love the outdoors as much as we do,” said noted conservationist, legendary angler and Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris. “We’re excited to expand our ability to serve them while showcasing our iconic outdoor brands, including Bass Pro Shops, Cabela’s and Tracker Boats and ATVs.”

For every dollar spent during the retailer’s “Evening for Conservation,” 10 percent will be donated to local conservation organizations. The outdoor and conservation company has a longstanding history of conservation support in Ohio, including the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife and its work conserving the state resources. In the past three years, the company granted over $100,000 to local organizations and conservation projects through the Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Outdoor Fund.
