HARLINGEN — Half of the subcontractors building the multimillion-dollar, 150,000-square-foot Bass Pro Shops store are from the Rio Grande Valley or have offices here.
Of 20 subcontractors hired by Bass Pro for the job, 10 are located in cities from Harlingen to McAllen.
These businesses are building and installing everything from concrete sections, flooring and roofing to lighting and air conditioning.
One local subcontractor is Harlingen-based Commercial Plumbing & Mechanical Contractors.
