Gander Mountain's Frisco Store on Schedule for Fall Opening


ST. PAUL, MN, February 29, 2016 --- Gander Mountain, the nation's largest and fastest-growing network of outdoor specialty stores, will be opening its newest Texas store, bringing the community of Frisco top of the line and relevant gear and apparel paired with expert associates.

Ground has been broken and construction is underway at the newest Gander Mountain store. The location is more than 60,000-square-feet and nestled within Eldorado Marketplace, near the northeast corner of Eldorado Parkway and Dallas North Tollway. This store will be the 22nd Gander Mountain in Texas, and the 5th in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

“We appreciate the warm welcome we have received from the community of Frisco and we look forward to the grand opening of our most recent Texas store this fall,” said Eric Jacobsen, Gander Mountain's executive vice president and director of real estate. “The project is well underway and on track for a family-friendly grand opening weekend featuring live music, celebrities, giveaways and kids' activities that the community can enjoy.”

With the opening of the new store, guests will be able to enjoy the company's Best Price Plus program. If a guest finds a lower advertised price on an identical in-stock item at another local retailer, Gander Mountain will match it plus give the guest 10 percent of the difference.

The store will feature one of the largest selections of new and used firearms in Texas, together with the best selection of gear and accessories for hunting, fishing, camping, boating, archery and more. The store will offer an extensive selection of men's and women's active performance outdoor and casual apparel featuring brands such as Under Armour, The North Face, GSX, Columbia, Carhartt, Guide Series and Kühl, and a wide variety of men's and women's active footwear featuring brands like Asics, Merrell, Rocky, Reebok, Reef, Keen, Irish Setter, Teva, New Balance, Patagonia, Timberland, LaCrosse, Itasca, Saucony and Salomon.

Additional details on special events, activities and promotions that will be a part of the new store's grand opening celebration will be available at in the coming months.
