Gander Mountain has completed a major remodeling of two Houston area stores to accomodate its new Firearms Super Centers and a much broader selection of outdoor and performance apparel and footwear brands.
The new format Gander Mountain stores feature Firearms Super Centers and offer one of the largest selections of new and used firearms in Texas, together with the best selection of gear and accessories for hunting, fishing, camping, boating and archery.
The stores offer an extensive selection of men’s and women’s active performance outdoor and casual apparel featuring exciting brands like The North Face, Columbia, Under Armour, GSX, Mountain Hardwear, Carhartt, Guide Series, Marmot and Kühl, and a wide variety of men’s and women’s active footwear featuring brands like Asics, Merrell, Rocky, Reebok, Keen, Irish Setter, Teva, New Balance, Brooks, Patagonia, Timberland, LaCrosse, Itasca, Saucony and Salomon.
Customers at the remodeled stores will enjoy easy access to Gander Mountain’s unmatched selection of new and used firearms around the country, whether the firearms are located at other stores, in central distribution facilities or on Gander Mountain’s market-leading online store. Customers will be able to order firearms and have access to all of Gander Mountain’s other terrific merchandise by using simple online order kiosks with easy delivery and pick-up at their favorite Gander Mountain store. Customers will enjoy the new look and shopping experience offered via exciting displays, innovative fixtures, open sight-lines, wider aisles, interactive signage, and a rich outdoor feel with new flooring, color schemes, stone and timber designs.
“It’s exciting to bring our great selection of merchandise, a sharp new look and improved shopping experience to so many of our Gander Mountain stores,” said David Pratt, Gander Mountain’s president and CEO. “Our new Firearms Super Centers have been very well received across the country, and we look forward to bringing that concept to many more stores in our network.”
