(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Workers are about a month away from finishing the shell of the new Bass Pro Shops store in downtown Oklahoma City.

The 104,775 square foot building is slated to open in November.

Bryan Timberlake of Timberlake Construction says most of the work will be done by the time Bass Pro officials begin preparing to open the store.

Oklahoma City project manager Wayne Courville says the company will start bringing in merchandise September 25th.

Workers have installed a rock formation at the store entrance, along with a 30,000-gallon aquarium and attached rock climbing wall.

Timberlake says trails and a stream leading from the Bricktown canal to the entrance of the store should be complete before the store opens.
