Camping World acquires Gander Mountain, all North Texas stores may close, including Frisco location


Sporting goods chain Gander Mountain may be closing all North Texas stores, including the Frisco store that opened last September.

Last week, Camping World announced that it has acquired Gander Mountain and its Overton boating business.

Gander Mountain filed for bankruptcy in March and closed 25 stores, including 10 in Texas.

There is no timeline when additional store closures will occur. Officials at the Frisco location said the store is now having a liquidation sale.

Camping World CEO Marcus Lemonis said in a press release that “the liquidation of the existing Gander Mountain inventory will allow us to start with a clean slate of what we consider the appropriate mix and level of inventory.”

Lemonis, also of CNBC TV’s reality show The Profit, recently answered some questions on Twitter regarding the Gander Mountain closure.
