Gan­der Out­doors com­ing thanks to ‘The Profit’

The News Herald (Willoughby, OH) - - Icymi -

Men­tor city of­fi­cials got some good news re­cently re­gard­ing one of the com­mu­nity’s former re­tail gi­ants.

The Gan­der Moun­tain build­ing at 9620 Di­a­mond Cen­tre Drive will be re­open­ing this spring as Gan­der Out­doors.

Mar­cus Le­mo­nis, star of CNBC’s re­al­ity TV se­ries ”The Profit”, bought Gan­der Moun­tain as­sets in bank­ruptcy court in May and is be­gin­ning to re­open many of the chain’s stores, ac­cord­ing to busi­ness­wire.com.

The store — an­tic­i­pated to open mid-April to early May — will em­ploy 55 peo­ple and com­prise 31,000 square feet of out­door re­tail, ap­parel, sup­ply and ser­vice space.

“It was im­por­tant to me to bring Gan­der Out­doors back to the won­der­ful com­mu­nity of Men­tor be­cause the em­ploy­ees were top-notch and the store was a great per­former serv­ing the out­door en­thu­si­ast com­mu­nity,” said Le­mo­nis, also chair­man of Camp­ing World Hold­ings, which now owns the chain.
