GREENFIELD — Gander Outdoors, formerly known as Gander Mountain, is open in Greenfield and preparing to celebrate with a public reception.
A special grand opening event is planned for Saturday at the 45,000-square-foot store at 2175 Barrett Drive.

The grand opening kicks off at 9 a.m. with free pastries and coffee. Family fun includes opportunities for children to paint a lure 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and build a duck call from 1 to 3 p.m. The event includes store-wide savings on an assortment of products and giveaways with customers receiving a gift with purchase and drawings for gift cards throughout the day, while supplies last.
Experts on fishing, hunting, boating and more will be available to talk with customers.
Marcus Lemonis, star of CNBC’s The Profit, bought Gander Mountain assets in bankruptcy court in May 2017 and is beginning to reopen many of the chain’s stores to serve customers who are passionate about hunting, fishing, marine and water sports, camping, and active and shooting sports.
Gander Outdoors is owned by Camping World Holdings.
“We look forward to seeing large crowds across the country as we continue the next phase of reopening Gander retail stores,” said Lemonis, chairman of Camping World Holdings. “We are excited to continue expanding our outdoor industry footprint while supporting economic growth across the country.”
