What is amazing is they are able to spend so much of their floor space on setting the theme for the store and still make as much money as they do. I don't know of any other store that utilizes such floor space on non-sales items.

The positioning of these stuffed bears really makes you think this is a live picture!

The presentation of the products is nothing like you would see them when on display at Kmart or Wal-Mart.

This is a company that totally hits their target market by sponsoring a race car. Guys who like hunting and fishing like watching nascar. Can you imagine if they were able to buy an NFL team and call them the Missouri Bass Pro's!

Here is a marketing idea that Bass Pro Shops sponsors.

Now you could offer something very similar! Why not have some kind of outdoor event like this annually where you have food, music and you raise money through admissions for a local charity?

This is something that really locks Bass Pro Shops in tightly with their community. It builds a strong community bond! You could do this too!
