Bass Pro Shops to Add a Memphis Pyramid to its Business Empire
What do you do with an empty 32-story glass-and-steel monument that was supposed to be Memphis’ answer to the Eiffel Tower or the Gateway Arch? That riddle has now been solved: The Pyramid, once a troubled arena for basketball and concerts, will be reborn as a hunting and fishing superstore. The much-maligned building, which once served as the home of the Memphis Grizzlies of the N.B.A. and the University of Memphis basketball program, is scheduled to officially reopen in late April or early May as an outpost of the Bass Pro Shops empire.
