69 Gander Outdoors Stores to Open by May

0
Gander Outdoors, formerly known as Gander Mountain, announced today the initial list of new retail stores that are scheduled to open in 2018. Camping World Holdings was chosen as the winning bidder at a bankruptcy auction for certain acquired assets of Gander Mountain and the sale was approved in a bankruptcy court hearing in May 2017. Camping World is beginning to reopen many of the Gander retail locations.

“It was important to me to bring Gander Outdoors back to many wonderful communities across the country because the employees are top notch and the stores provide great products and services for the community,” said Marcus Lemonis, Chairman of Camping World Holdings. “Our great team at the headquarters in Bloomington, MN has been working tirelessly over the past 6 months to get the locations prepared and we are extremely excited to begin the rapid opening process and hope to open all locations this spring.”

Camping World is on a buying spree of outdoor retailers, having recently picked up Overton’s, thehouse.com, and Uncle Dan’s in addition to Gander Mountain. Just yesterday, the company announced it has also agreed to purchase the Erehwon Mountain Outfitter chain.

Following months of negotiations with landlords and remodeling existing locations, the company plans to open 69 locations by May 2018. Lemonis continued, “We feel this list of locations is very solid and ready to be up and running in the coming months. Two locations have already opened, two more are slated to open next week and others will begin opening at a very rapid pace over the next few months.”
