CEO: Fargo's Gander Mountain store 'will stay open'

Camping World CEO Marcus Lemonis was very active on Twitter Friday, responding directly to people's questions about whether certain stores were closing.

In March, Gander Mountain filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

The Plattsburgh Gander Mountain store is launching a sale after the chain was sold.

The Gander Mountain retail store in Albemarle County is holding a "going out of business sale" after the company was acquired by Camping World Holdings Inc. Signs in the front windows said "everything must go", while a large banner on the north side of the building that opened in 2004 said "going out of business".

Brent Moody, Camping World's chief operating officer, said the company will focus on corporate overhead and expenses as it "right sizes" Gander Mountain's inventory.

But he did tweet on Friday that the Spotsylvania store would remain open.

In a press release sent Monday about Gander Mountain's acquisition, Camping World said a group of liquidators would begin "liquidating sales at substantially all of Gander Mountain's existing stores".
