Gander Outdoors Opening Its First Charlotte Area Store This Weekend


The Charlotte area is about to get 3 brand new sporting good stores…kind of.

Last year, 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 is 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).

The first grand opening will be this weekend at the new Gastonia store and will include tons of prizes and giveaways;

The second Charlotte-area store to open will be the Monroe location in the coming weeks;

Followed by the Mooresville location;

According to their press release, the new stores 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.”
