Gander Outdoors, formerly known as Gander Mountain, is now open in Eden Prairie.
A grand opening event is planned for Saturday, May 19, at 12160 Technology Drive. The 64,450 square foot location is one of the retailer’s seven planned facilities in the state.
The grand opening will kick off at 9 a.m. with free pastries and coffee in the morning, and hot dogs and chips provided by a local Boy Scout Troop from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Family activities will include opportunities for children to paint a lure 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.. and build a duck call from 1 to 3 p.m. The event includes storewide savings and giveaways with customers receiving a gift with purchase and drawings for gift cards throughout the day, while supplies last, according to a news release.
Marcus Lemonis, star of CNBC's The Profit, bought Gander Mountain assets in bankruptcy court in May 2017 and is beginning to reopen many of the chain's stores to serve customers who are passionate about hunting, fishing, marine and water sports, camping, and active and shooting sports. Gander Outdoors is owned by Camping World Holdings and will provide outdoor enthusiasts with regionally and seasonally relevant products and services, the release said.
