About Bass Pro Shops
Bass Pro Shops is North America’s premier outdoor and conservation company. Founded in 1972 when avid young angler Johnny Morris began selling tackle out of his father’s liquor store in Springfield, Missouri, today the company provides customers with unmatched offerings spanning premier destination retail, outdoor equipment manufacturing, world-class resort destinations and more. In 2017 Bass Pro Shops acquired Cabela’s to create a “best-of-the-best” experience with superior products, dynamic locations and outstanding customer service. Bass Pro Shops also operates White River Marine Group, offering an unsurpassed collection of industry-leading boat brands, and Big Cedar Lodge, America’s Premier Wilderness Resort. Under the visionary conservation leadership of Johnny Morris, Bass Pro Shops is a national leader in protecting habitat and introducing families to the outdoors and has been named by Forbes as “one of America’s Best Employers.”

An ever-changing retail landscape
You may forgive an infrequent visitor to the Eastwood Mall Complex who stops and says “Wait. Where did that come from?” It’s true that the landscape has been seemingly constantly changing. For the past several years, construction cranes loomed overhead and earth-movers rumbled below, creating new and interesting attractions for local consumers.
An enormous Meijer super-center and accompanying gas station/convenience store now dominate the Howland Commons section of the complex. It’s literally just across the parking lot from a new HomeGoods and Mission BBQ. A long stone’s throw away from that: A new Longhorn Steakhouse.
Throughout the mall complex, smaller retailers and eateries are popping up as well…names like BoxLunch, Mudslingers Coffee, McAlister’s Deli and NrGize Café. With all this activity, is it any wonder that other businesses in the vicinity have been attracted to relocate to the sprawling Eastwood property? Levin Furniture (an existing tenant) moved to another available space, as did a Planet Fitness from just down the road. The retail synergy even drew two long-time competitors to join forces. Automotive customizers Noel’s Car Toys and Auto Evolution are now operating under the same roof. With other construction projects either scheduled or already underway, other new business openings are forthcoming.
