A week from this Saturday on March, 31, Gander Mountain is officially back in Amarillo as Gander Outdoors. The store will be at 10300 I-40 Frontage Road, and is one of only four Gander Outdoors locations in the state of Texas.

Gander Mountain assets were purchased in bankruptcy court in May of last year by Marcus Lemonis, who is reopening several of the chain's stores. This one will employ over 70 part-time employees and full-time staff.

With our proximity to Palo Duro Canyon, along with other great outdoor destinations, it should come as no surprise that this area would be seen as one that would be excited about having the store reopen.

There are several events planned for the grand opening day at Gander Outdoors. There will be events for the kids throughout the day, and pastries and coffee in the morning.
