ST. PAUL, Minn. — Gander Outdoors, formerly known as Gander Mountain, is now open in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. A special grand opening event is planned for May 19, 2018 at 12160 Technology Drive. The 64,450 square foot location is one of the retailer’s seven planned facilities in the state.
The grand opening will kick off at 9 a.m.. with free pastries and coffee in the morning, and hot dogs and chips provided by a local Boy Scout Troop from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. Family fun includes opportunities for children to paint a lure 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. and build a duck call from 1-3 p.m. The event includes store-wide savings on a huge assortment of products and fantastic giveaways with customers receiving a gift with purchase and drawings for gift cards throughout the day, while supplies last. Experts on fishing, hunting, boating and more will be available to assist with customers inquiries and purchases.
Marcus Lemonis, chairman of Camping World, bought Gander Mountain assets in bankruptcy court in May 2017 and is beginning to reopen many of the chain’s stores to serve customers who are passionate about hunting, fishing, marine and water sports, camping, and active and shooting sports. Gander Outdoors is owned by Camping World Holdings and will provide outdoor enthusiasts with regionally and seasonally relevant products and services that are competitively priced.
“We’ve received such positive feedback from all the communities across the country in which we opened our new Gander Outdoors locations,” said Lemonis. “We are so thankful for the customers shopping with us for their outdoor and sporting needs and we are excited to continue expanding our outdoor industry footprint, while supporting economic growth in all these communities.”
