Gander Outdoors grand opening set for Saturday

PENNSDALE — Gander Outdoors will hold a grand opening Saturday at the former Gander Mountain store near the Lycoming Mall.

The newly branded store will occupy the former Gander Mountain location at 66 Mall Parkway and employ more than 70 part-time employees and full-time staff.

The event, beginning at 9 a.m., will include free pastries and coffee and food provided by the Boy Scouts.

Kids’ activities will be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Customers can receive a gift with a purchase and drawings for Gander Outdoors gift cards throughout the day.

Marcus Lemonis, star of CNBC’s “The Profit,” bought Gander Mountain assets in bankruptcy court in May 2017.

Owned by Camping World Holdings, Gander Outdoors offers products and services for outdoor enthusiasts.

“The Muncy store is one of six Gander Outdoor locations planned in the state of Pennsylvania and we have seen an overwhelming positive response to this location opening, which offers customers one-stop shopping to serve all their outdoor recreational needs,” said Lemonis, chairman of Camping World Holdings. “We are excited to continue expanding our outdoor industry footprint and reinforce our brand’s presence, while supporting economic growth across the country.”
