Gander Mountain Will Keep Some Minnesota Locations Open
The CEO of the outdoor and sporting goods company that acquired Gander Mountain says the decision to close the Bemidji and Baxter Gander Mountain locations has been reversed. Marcus Lemonis, CEO of Camping World, said in a tweet on Thursday that the Bemidji and Baxter stores would now stay open after a liquidation sale.
The decision to close many stores across the United States was made in mid-May after the company filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy back in March.
Out of the 57 stores that will now stay open, five are located in Minnesota. The CEO also said that the Woodbury Gander Mountain location in the Twin Cities Metro area would be re-built before it opens again.
