Gander Mountain Coming To Parker
ST. PAUL, MN, September 2, 2015 --- Before heading off to hike in the Rockies, fish in world class rivers and lakes, or hunt deer, elk, sage grouse or upland birds, outdoors enthusiasts in Denver and surrounding communities will soon have a new opportunity to find the widest selection and expert service on the best names in gear and apparel. Gander Mountain, the nation’s largest and fastest-growing network of outdoor specialty stores, announced today it will open its newest Colorado location in Parker in the spring of 2016.
“Colorado is an outdoors paradise and Gander Mountain is the place to go for outdoors enthusiasts who are seeking the best selection, service and prices,” said Gander Mountain’s Chief Executive Officer David Pratt. “We are happy to bring a new Gander Mountain store to the people of the Front Range, where outdoors traditions run deep and are passed down from generation to generation. We’re looking forward to giving more people in the Denver region chance to experience all that Gander Mountain offers.”
The newest Gander Mountain store will be located in a new 57,600-square-foot store in the Crown Point development, at the northeast corner of E470 and S Parker Road (Colorado 83). It will be the third Gander Mountain location in Colorado, joining existing stores in Aurora and Thornton.
“We are excited to welcome Gander Mountain to the Town of Parker,” said Parker Mayor Mike Waid. “Providing new retail opportunity to our residents and those of the region is a priority and we think Gander Mountain will add a unique component to the diverse retail mix that currently exists in Parker.”
