Gander Mountain Announces Plans For Cedar Rapids Location
Along Blairs Ferry Road in Cedar Rapids sits a brand new, empty, Gander Mountain store. When will the newly built store open to the public? Gander Mountain says that it plans to open up the new retail space sometime this fall. That's as specific as they would get.
The new building has sat in limbo ever since Gander announced it was filing for bankruptcy. Prior to that announcement, they announced that they were closing their location on the west side of Cedar Rapids and opening up this new Blairs Ferry Road store. The grand opening was supposed to happen in April, but the store has sat empty for months.
Back in May, Camping World announced that they were purchasing Gander Mountain and would be keeping several locations open. Cedar Rapids was a store that was going to be saved. Some of those locations were going to be Gander/Camping World duel location stores. But now Camping World would not confirm those plans.
So for now, a brand new giant retail store sits empty in Cedar Rapids. Will it ever be filled and open? I have my doubts.
