Grand opening celebrations will take place on Saturday, February 10, for both locations.
The Paducah location occupies the former Gander Mountain location at 3240 James Sanders Boulevard, and the 68,000-square-foot building will operate with over 55 part-time employees and full-time staff.
The Indianapolis store likewise occupies the former Gander Mountain location at 5702 E 86th Street, and the 55,000 square-foot building will operate with over 55 part-time employees and full-time staff.
Two Gander Outdoors locations are planned in the state of Kentucky and three in the state of Indiana.
The Saturday grand opening celebrations will commence when the doors open at 9:00 A.M. Activities include free pastries and coffee in the morning, lure painting for kids from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and build-a-duck call from 1-3 p.m. Customers will also receive a gift with purchase and drawings for Gander Outdoors gift cards throughout the day, while supplies last.
