Default Gander Closing

Don't believe the web page saying that gift card are accepted until 5/18.
I went out there today and was told that they shut that down last night and that my $40 Rewards Certificate was worthless.
The "sales" sucked too. pretty much 10-15% off retail.
I ain't happy!

Web site says they are being acquired by Camping World. Owner is Marcus Lemonis, TV show "The Profit." So maybe that isn't a bad thing? On the show they show some great success stories turning companies around. "People, process, product." Although I recall that he does already have an association with Bass Pro. Remember the guy with the little baseball bats? So, who knows. . Anyway, web site says they'll be back fall 2017.

Can't even access the web site. It is just a big banner page saying all stores closing, gift card accepted until 5/18. http://www.gandermountain.com/
There's more info on Twitter than what the employees even know.https://twitter.com/GanderMtn?lang=en

So it looks like Lemonis bought the Gander assets at an auction, including leases, intellectual property and the Overton's business. A different liquidator owns the current store inventory and will be selling that off. At least some stores will stay open.

Camping World has some of the worst service of any retail store.

This purchase isn't a good thing for the consumer.
