Gander Mountain Closing in Janesville
Despite filing a Chapter 11 bankruptcy in March, Gander Mountain will be closing 126 stores nationwide including the one in Janesville, WI, according to a report today in the Janesville Gazette. This will certainly be a loss to hunters, fishermen and other sportsmen in Rock County as the article included an interview with a customer who said that the next nearest comparable store would be Cabella’s in Sun Prairie. However, a short term benefit does exist in the form of a going out of business sale. The article did seem to hold out the possibility of the store continuing to operate under new ownership, but this has not been confirmed by anyone at Gander Mounatain.
