Camping World lowers re-opening target for Gander Mountain

LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. — On its second-quarter conference call, Camping World now says it may reopen as few as 40 former Gander Mountain locations, far short of earlier expectations, due to challenges renegotiating leases. Camping World also confirmed that the re-opened Gander stores will be much smaller than its traditional locations and feature significantly less footwear and apparel.

On June 30, Camping World, the nation’s largest RV-retailer, revealed the locations of the 57 Gander Outdoors and Overton’s brand locations it planned to keep as part of its acquisition of Gander Mountain, which filed for bankruptcy in March. The company acquired the rights to the leases in the bankruptcy.

Initially, Camping World estimated it would keep between 60 and 80. The 57-year old business had 126 locations when it filed for bankruptcy.
