Sam’s Club could come to Harlingen, likely near Bass Pro Shops
Harlingen stands to get a Sam’s Club at Cameron Crossing, Myleadernews has learned.
That is if negotiations can be worked out.
The proposed site is property located adjacent to Bass Pro Shops, which would make it the first business to build there since the outdoor store was constructed.
The company, a division of Wal-Mart Stores, reportedly is working with the Harlingen City Commission and the Economic Development Corporation behind closed doors, in an effort to make a solid deal.
One problem is the price of land resulting from the Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World. It has gone up from about $4 a square foot before BPS and now is about $28 a square foot.
Bass Pro Shops is the anchor store at Cameron Crossing, a 110-acre retail development.
The city and EDC are banking on several other retail stores will locate there.
