GREENFIELD — If the line to enter Greenfield’s Gander Mountain store when it opens later this spring resembles the line to fill out employment applications, business will be booming.

The national outdoor equipment retailer is on schedule for a late May opening for its store in the 2100 block of North Barrett Drive, just north of Home Depot in Greenfield, and store manager Tim Ledford said there has been no shortage of those hoping to work there.

“We have gotten over 400 applications,” Ledford said Wednesday. “And we’ve gotten a lot of quality people to apply.”

The 45,600-square-foot store will employ an initial workforce of about 90 for the first several months after opening, Ledford said, and managers have been working long hours to go over the applications and talk to prospective employees.
