Of the closures, 10 are Texas locations: Houston, Killeen, Laredo, Lubbock, Round Rock, San Antonio, Sugar Land, Texarkana, Waco and West Houston. These locations are expected to close in the next several weeks, according to Gander Mountain.
An auction for the company's assets is expected in late April with a closing sale by May 15.
