Three Georgia Gander Mountain Stores Closing
Gander Mountain has decided to close 32 stores, including three Georgia locations.
Gander Mountain, one of the nation’s largest chain of retail stores for hunting and fishing gear, is trimming some fat. The cutbacks include a process of shutting down stores in Augusta, Snellville and McDonough. In all, 32 stores will be closing as part of a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing.
A news release from Gander Mountain states, “Like many retailers, Gander Mountain experienced challenging traffic patterns and shifts in consumer demand resulting from increased direct-to-customer sales by key vendors and accelerated growth of e-commerce. Despite aggressive actions to improve the efficiency of the company’s retail operations and support functions, the underlying financial impact from underperforming stores and unproductive, excess inventory hampered efforts to create a sustainable path forward.”
Guns.com reports that Gander Mountain operates 162 stores in 26 states and that Gander Mountain is in the process of selling their company.
