Less than a year after the Gander Outdoors store opened in Paducah, Kentucky, it has shut its doors, and without any warning. A notice was posted on the store’s front door Sunday night announcing the closure.
The notice said in part, “For RV accessories, please visit us at one of our other retail locations or at CampingWorld.com.”
Good Sam and Camping World Holdings CEO Marcus Lemonis acquired bankrupt Gander Mountain about two years ago and has reopened many of the stores as Gander Outdoors. The stores sell guns, camping gear, hunting apparel, footwear, RV accessories and other outdoor sporting goods. Many stores include an RV dealership with approximately two-dozen more set to open.
Gander Outdoors had previously abruptly closed its Florence, Alabama, store only months after it opened there.
Approximately 65 former Gander Mountain stories are currently operating as Gander Outdoors.
