Gander Mountain is expanding their network of outdoor specialty stores with a new location in Mt. Juliet, TN set to open in the spring of 2014.

“For many years, Gander Mountain has been a well-known and trusted name in Tennessee among those who love the outdoors, and who enjoy great traditions like hunting, fishing, hiking, boating and camping,” says David Pratt, Gander Mountain's president and CEO. “We are thrilled to bring a new Gander Mountain store to Middle Tennessee, and give more of our friends in Mt. Juliet and the greater Nashville metro area opportunities to experience our top-quality gear and knowledgeable service at great prices.”

The new store will be located in a new 52,000-square-foot space adjacent to Providence Marketplace, near the intersection of I-40 and Highway 171/Mt. Juliet Road.

“This is great news for the citizens of Mt. Juliet and our entire region,” says Mt. Juliet Mayor Ed Hagerty. “Gander Mountain has a highly-regarded reputation and will be a perfect fit for our community's diverse retail mix. I'm pleased to welcome this quality company to Mt. Juliet and to Middle Tennessee. Gander Mountain is a destination store and will bring shoppers from many counties and even from other states to our city.”
