Gander Mountain is expanding its network of outdoor specialty stores with a new location in Chattanooga, set to open in the fall 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,” said David Pratt, Gander Mountain's Chairman and CEO. “We are thrilled to bring another new Gander Mountain store to the state, and give our friends in Chattanooga and the surrounding region more opportunities to experience our top-quality gear and knowledgeable service at great prices.”
The store will be located in an existing 50,000-square-foot facility in the Oak Park Town Center, just off Tennessee Highway 153 in Hixson. It will be the fourth Gander Mountain location in Tennessee, joining existing stores in Jackson and Knoxville, and a new store announced for Mt. Juliet, to open in the spring.
“Chattanooga is known for our love of the great outdoors – from our mountains and river to downtown walking bridges and miles of bike trails,” said Mayor Andy Berke. “As our city continues to grow as a world-class outdoor destination, we are excited to welcome retailers like Gander Mountain to our community.”
