Gander Mountain is gone.
« on: May 24, 2017, 09:01:43 pm »
I learned yesterday that Gander Mountain filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy in March and Camping World bought them out with a winning bid from the bankruptcy auction.
It's just sad that a 50+ year old company like Gander Mountain would just vanish. My research indicates that Gander Mountain had invested way to much in brick and mortar stores, when online shopping is booming.  I hope that Camping World does well with acquiring the business.

They had a huge going out of business sale for a week back in May. Strangely though, that was the slowest week that my business had in years... Just coincidence? I don't know but I wish I had a crystal ball that could show me the peaks and valleys in business.
