LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Camping World Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CWH) (the “Company”), operator of the nation’s largest network of RV-centric retail locations, today provided an update on the rollout of Gander RV locations and the expansion of its national footprint to serve outdoor enthusiasts who are passionate about traveling in RVs and experiencing outdoor activities.
“We view our existing Gander Outdoors stores as the most cost-effective opportunity to increase our RV sales presence and grow our Good Sam Club, particularly in key RV markets where we are underpenetrated,” said Marcus Lemonis, Chairman of Camping World Holdings.
The first Gander RV location opened in late summer of 2018 in Kenosha, WI, inside a revamped Gander Outdoors store. Since the opening of Kenosha, the Company has opened additional Gander RV locations in Ocala, FL; Augusta, GA; Fayetteville, NC; Huber Heights, OH; Jackson, TN; Amarillo, TX; Spring, TX; Tyler, TX; Roanoke, VA; DeForest, WI; Eau Claire, WI and Rothschild, WI. Additional Gander RV locations opening soon include: Anniston, AL; Wichita, KS; Baxter, MN; Hermantown, MN; Forest Lake, MN; Cicero, NY; Breaux Bridge (Lafayette), LA; Springfield, IL; Marion, IL; Coldwater, MI and Statesville, NC with additional dealerships planned for the remainder of the year. Gander RV locations will operate similar to the Company’s other RV dealerships, complete with RV sales, service and parts and accessories.
Continued Lemonis, "As we continue to expand our network and portfolio, we are driven by our customer’s expectations for convenience and personalization in their shopping experience, while looking to enhance their outdoor adventure experience.”
Additionally, the company continues to actively pursue new dealership opportunities through the acquisition of land and existing dealerships in high traffic, outdoor-centric areas.
“Our continued expansion through the opening of Gander RV Sales locations, opportunistic and strategic acquisitions and new store development, reinforces our focus on expanding our national footprint and providing consumers with the ultimate assortment of RV and outdoor related products and services,” said Brent Moody, President of Camping World Holdings.
