Gander Mountain stores to reopen under new name

Gander Outdoors, formerly known as Gander Mountain, announced an initial list of retail stores that are scheduled to open in 2018.

Camping World Holdings Inc. was chosen as the winning bidder at a bankruptcy auction for certain acquired assets of Gander Mountain and the sale was approved in a bankruptcy court hearing in May 2017. Dozens of Gander Mountain stores closed after the company filed bankruptcy, including on location in Huber Heights. The Dayton Daily News was the first new organizations to report in June that the store, located at 8001 Old Troy Pike in Huber Heights, would close.

In early January, Camping World announced it is beginning to reopen many of the Gander Outdoors stores to serve customers. Following months of negotiations and remodeling existing locations, the company plans to open 69 locations by May 2018.

No local stores will reopen this spring, but Gander Mountains is currently “pursuing more locations for expansion and expects to announce additional locations and markets in the near term.” Two stores in Ohio — in Mentor and Niles — will reopen by May.
