The Charlotte area is about to get 3 brand new sporting good stores…kind of.
Last March, Gander Mountain filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, and one month later, Marcus Lemonis, the star of CNBC’s hit show ‘The Profit’, purchased the entire company and all of its assets and stores.
Marcus will now be relaunching the brand under a new name, ‘Gander Outdoors’, including 3 Charlotte area stores in Mooresville (236 Norman Station Blvd.), Gastonia (3704 E Franklin Blvd), and Monroe (3151 W Hwy 74).
According to their press release, the new stores will be opening mid-March to early-April and will bring more than 170 jobs to the area.
“It was important to me to bring the Gander Outdoors back to the wonderful community of Charlotte because the employees were top notch and the store was a great performer serving the outdoor enthusiast community,” said Marcus Lemonis. “In addition to the Charlotte locations, we are currently pursuing other locations for reopening and expansion and expect to announce additional locations and markets in the coming weeks.”
