We got the same email notice.

Just one of those.. Wait & See.. things.

Nothing to be concerned about.

Wait a week.. some might buy GS/CW ?  ;)  :)

Gander Mt was closing a bunch of stores. I noticed the one right next door to Camping World in St Augustine is still open. Now I know why.  ;)

What do I think of this..
I am of two minds.

1: Will be nice if Affininty's ownership keeps the stores open.

2: Mega Merger Mainia means less real competition, and generally higher prices.

Don't have much use for either of them.

Gander has been struggling for awhile, so this will help keep stores open. And I have to say that CW under Lemonis has become more competitive in pricing. Service is still mediocre, but probably no worse than average for RV dealers.

I am hoping Camping World keeps the boat business and sells the stores to Sportsmen Warehouse.  I liked them better than either GM or Cabelas before Sportsmen Warehouse left the MN market. Not sure if GM fits what Camping World is selling now.

I believe CW bought about 17 of the approx 140 stores as well as both the Gander & Overton brand names.  They did not buy any inventory.
