An expanded fly-fishing department is on tap for the new Backwoods Fort Worth store scheduled to open by the end of November. The new location is 441 Carroll St. in the Montgomery Ward Plaza shopping center on the city’s near west side.
The independent outdoors retailer also said it has added a pop-up shop in Fort Worth’s Trailhead at Clearfork development. That location opened Nov. 8 and is in addition to its Backwoods Paddlesports facility at Panther Island Pavilion. It will also continue to operate out of the Foch Street Warehouses development.
Backwoods said its new Carroll St. store covers 6,400 square feet and features an HD theater area, Backwoods Adventures travel kiosk, expanded outdoor gear offerings and an outdoor green space.
“It’s going to be a really fun space in the heart of Fort Worth,” said Tim Martin, general manager of Backwoods Fort Worth. Grand opening events are planned. Backwoods has operated in Fort Worth since 1978. The company is based in Austin and also has stores in Omaha, Oklahoma City and Tulsa.
