SAN ANTONIO- The property where the huge Bass Pro Shop sits at the Rim Shopping Center went up on the auction block. The owners owed nearly four million dollars in delinquent taxes on the property.
Within a matter of minutes after the bidding got underway on the steps of the Bexar County Courthouse the property sold to the highest bidder at auction.
Flint Bourgeois, who bought the property said, “We bid 4.2million for the Bass Pro Shops property and Commercial Builders Group is the high bidder. We're happy to have the property and we think its going to be a good business deal”.
The new owners have been tight lipped about their future plans for the property. But a communications spokesperson for Bass Pro Shop headquarters said the store is a big attraction that brings in about three million visitors a year and they don't know why anyone would want to change that.
