ST. PAUL, Mn. (Feb. 6, 2018) – Gander Outdoors, formerly known as Gander Mountain, is now open in Paducah, Ky. The store will hold a grand opening celebration on Saturday, Feb. 10 beginning at 9 a.m.. The newly branded store occupies the former Gander Mountain location at 3240 James Sanders Boulevard, and the 68,000 square-foot building will operate with over 55 part-time employees and full-time staff.
Marcus Lemonis, star of CNBC’s The Profit, 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.
“The Paducah store is one of two Gander Outdoors locations planned in the state of Kentucky and we have seen an overwhelming positive response to the opening of the Paducah location, which offers customers one-stop shopping to serve all their outdoor recreational needs,” said Marcus Lemonis, chairman of Camping World Holdings. “We are excited to continue expanding our outdoor industry footprint and reinforce our brand’s presence, while supporting economic growth across the country.”
