Bass Pro Shop getting new neighbor: Camping World

ROSSFORD, OHIO (TOLEDO NEWS NOW) -

A new store is coming to Rossford, and it may give Bass Pro Shop a run for its money.

Camping World will be moving in nearby on Simmons Road next spring.

The store could be between 5,000-6,000 square feet and will include several bays for camper service. According to the store's website, they sell bikes, boats and ATVs in addition to camping gear.

People in the area say there's currently no store geared toward camping needs, aside from Bass Pro, which also sells camping equipment.

"We need something like that around here, because there's not enough places where you can get…camping equipment," said Joe Shaver, who is looking forward to the new store.

There is no word yet on how many jobs the new store will create.
