Autumn in North Texas means more than just football and the start of hunting seasons. In 2015, it also means new opportunities for outdoors enthusiasts to find great prices, the top selection and friendly service when shopping for the best in gear and apparel.
Gander Mountain is once again expanding the nation’s largest and fastest-growing network of outdoor specialty stores with a new location in Frisco, set to open in the fall.
“Gander Mountain is already a well-known and trusted name in Texas among those who love the outdoors, and who enjoy great traditions like hunting, fishing, hiking, boating and camping,” said David Pratt, Gander Mountain’s chief executive officer. “We are thrilled to bring a new Gander Mountain store to Frisco, and to give our friends in North Texas and the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex more opportunities to experience our top-quality gear and knowledgeable service at great prices.”
The newest Gander Mountain will be located in a new 60,100-square-foot store in the Eldorado Marketplace, near the northeast corner of Eldorado Parkway and Dallas North Tollway. It will be the 22nd Gander Mountain location in Texas, and the fifth in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
“We’re elated Gander Mountain is adding Frisco to its budding list of future store locations,” said Mayor Maher Maso from the City of Frisco. “As one of the fastest-growing cities in the country, a growing company like Gander Mountain is a great fit for Frisco. We look forward to working with Gander Mountain and its team.”
“We appreciate the warm welcome we have received from the people in Frisco and look forward to the grand opening of our most recent Texas store in the fall,” said Eric Jacobsen, Gander Mountain’s executive vice president and director of Real Estate.
Gander Mountain’s newest store will feature one of the largest selections of new and used firearms in Texas, together with the best selection of gear and accessories for hunting, fishing, camping, boating and archery.
