The largest Bass Pro Shop in Oklahoma is open for business.

The outdoor retailer opened its doors Wednesday at 5:00PM.

The Broken Arrow location is more than 1/3 bigger that the Oklahoma City location.

Along with the usual fishing, hunting, and camping departments, the Broken Arrow store has some unique features like a NASCAR section, an arcade, and a Starbucks coffee shop.

The store is also part museum, with wildlife exhibits adorning the entire store. State record fish mounts, turkeys, native waterfowl, quail, pheasants, rams, elk, full body whitetail mounts, and pronghorn antelope are on display.

The store also features a marine section, which sells and repairs boats.

The store employes between 200 and 250 people, most of which are from here in Green Country.
