At the grand opening held in November shoppers were treated to appearances by MLB player Johnny Damon and outdoors world celebrities Brant McGee from the History Channel’s Alone Show, T.J. Ott from the Wicked Tuna show, and Roland Martin, a nine-time Bassmaster Angler of the Year. In addition, Bass Pro Shops donated 50 cents of every dollar spent during Wednesday’s event to the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, the Bureau of Natural Resources and America’s Wildlife Museum and Aquarium.

“We are so excited that the first Bass Pro Shops to open in Connecticut is located in our project,” said Ferrara Jerum International partner and Steelpointe Harbor leasing consultant Douglas Jerum. “Our goal has been to secure a strong mix of both recognizable and first-to-market retailers for this project. With the opening of Bass Pro Shops, we have certainly done that.”
