SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. -

Outdoor retail giant Bass Pro Shops is setting up shop in Spartanburg County.

The announcement was made Wednesday at a news conference.

The company will be building the 120,000 square foot store near the BMW facility at the intersection of Highway 101 and Interstate 85.

It is planned to be the anchor for developments including other retail stores, hotels and restaurants.

The store, the company's third in South Carolina, is set to open in 2016.

“This store will be a tribute to the great sporting tradition and heritage of the region and a celebration of the sporting men and women of South Carolina,” said Johnny Morris, founder of Bass Pro Shops.

Bass Pro Shop's major competitor, Cabela’s, opened a new store off Woodruff Road in Greenville County earlier this month.
