To draw shoppers into the store, Bass Pro Shops offers in store seminars like this one where they are having a "Texas Catfishing Seminar."

http://www.txcatfishguide.com/bpsoctseminar.html

What kind of seminar could you offer at your facility and what products could you promote at the seminar?

Can you imagine how long it must take to recoup the money invested into this facility?

$120 million dollars! I would like to know how many years it would take for this store to be paid for.

From this site.

What's your guess?
