Hanover BPS Opens October 1

Recommended Posts

According to the Sunday, September 14, 2008 Richmond-Times Dispatch the Hanover Bass Pro Shop off I-95 northof Richmond will open on October 1st.

Since the I-95 exit is not a cloverleaf, guys heading from Richmod may want to take Route 1, getting off at the Elmont exit by Gander Mountain and go north on Route 1.

Guys heading south may want to get off at Lewistown Road and head south on Route 1.

So make your plans, accordingly.  ;)

Thanks Sam.  Where do you go once you get off at the Lewistown exit.  The BPS is not on route 1 is it?

From Northern Virginia:

South on I-95.

Go off at the Ashland exit, exit #92.

At Route 1 turn LEFT towards Richmond.

Go LEFT onto Lewistown Road, about three miles down Route 1.

Ashland exit is #92.  Lewistown Road is exit #89.

Green Top exit by Gander Mountain is exit #86.

Ron, October 1st may be the special private grand opening so double check the BPS web site to confirm the opening date.

I will probably venture down on October 2nd but if you go on October 1st you may want to check out exit #89 and if it is clear, take it.

Just bear RIGHT at the top of the exit hill and then look to turn LEFT on th road to the BPS store.

If the Lewistown Road exit is not clear, then go down to the Elmont exit (Sliding Hill Road but it is not marked on any signs), and after getting off the interstate you will then bear RIGHT onto Sliding Hill Road.

(Gander Mountain is on your left after you exit the interstate)

At the dead end at Route 1, which is the second traffic signal after you get off the interstate, about three-quarters of a mile, turn RIGHT towards Ashland.

Lewistown Road will be on your RIGHT off Route 1.

Or at the Sliding Hill Road and Route 1 dead end, you can turn LEFT and visit Green Top.

Let me know when you are going and I will try to meet you and Jason, if he can make it.  :)

I will PM my cell phone number to you.

Hey Sam,

A buddy of mine called them today and they stated there was going to be a "soft sale" which means they are not advertising it this coming Saturday.

Ron,

Bring money.

Beautiful store and the fishing department has a nice layout.

Sorry I will miss you but we are headed up north for the weekend.

And let me know if you all are successful at the secret ponds we discussed.  ;)

Sam,

I will let you know how we make out down there.  The store is really nice, I was there last Thursday evening and I spent quite a bit.  I bought a new spinning reel and a new trigger rod.  This trip is for Jason, I am buying him two new rods and one new reel.  I am also going to see if they have restocked the new Rage Tail products.

Went today, and got some hunting stuff.  Some nice boots, and duck decoys.  No fishing stuff.  Second time in the store.  The place is unreal.
