Hon­ey­moon over for Bass Pro Shops Pyra­mid

SA Bass - - >> Sa Bass Angling International -

Sales at Bass Pro Shops Pyra­mid at­trac­tion in Mem­phis, USA tailed off in its third year of trad­ing. Sales fig­ures re­leased by the com­pany to City of Mem­phis of­fi­cials, which owns the build­ing, re­veal that its tak­ings were down 4% on the pre­vi­ous year from $46.7 mil­lion to $45.6 mil­lion. The Spring­field, Mis­souri-based business is pri­vately held and does not re­veal sales from in­di­vid­ual stores, but the com­pany re­ports to the city and its in­come is used to cal­cu­late its an­nual rent.

The lat­est fig­ures con­firm what re­tail ex­perts pre­dicted last year – that the Pyra­mid’s sales had lev­elled off at a sus­tain­able rate fol­low­ing an ex­pected drop-off as the store moved out of the typ­i­cal hon­ey­moon pe­riod for a new re­tail store. The sec­ond year to­tal was down 15.5% from $56.3 mil­lion in its first year of trad­ing.
