New Gander Mountain Store Coming To Chattanooga

Monday, January 13, 2014

Gander Mountain is opening an outdoor specialty store in Chattanooga this fall.  

“For many years, Gander Mountain has been a well-known and trusted name in Tennessee among those who love the outdoors, and who enjoy great traditions like hunting, fishing, hiking, boating and camping,” said David Pratt, Gander Mountain’s chairman and CEO. “We are thrilled to bring another new Gander Mountain store to the state, and give our friends in Chattanooga and the surrounding region more opportunities to experience our top-quality gear and knowledgeable service at great prices.”

The store will be located in an existing 50,000-square-foot facility in the Oak Park Town Center, just off Tennessee Highway 153 in Hixson. It will be the fourth Gander Mountain location in Tennessee, joining existing stores in Jackson and Knoxville, and a new store announced for Mt. Juliet, to open in the spring. 

“Chattanooga is known for our love of the great outdoors – from our mountains and river to downtown walking bridges and miles of bike trails,” said Mayor Andy Berke. “As our city continues to grow as a world-class outdoor destination, we are excited to welcome retailers like Gander Mountain to our community.”

Gander Mountain’s newest store will feature new and used firearms, and a selection of gear and accessories for hunting, fishing, camping, boating and archery. The store will offer a selection of men’s and women’s active performance outdoor and casual apparel featuring brands like The North Face, Columbia, Under Armour, GSX, Carhartt, Guide Series and Kühl, and a variety of men’s and women’s active footwear featuring brands like Asics, Merrell, Rocky, Reebok, Keen, Irish Setter, Teva, New Balance, Brooks, Patagonia, Timberland, LaCrosse, Itasca, Saucony and Salomon.

Customers may order firearms and have access to all of Gander Mountain’s other merchandise by using online order kiosks with delivery and pick-up at the Gander Mountain store.

The new Chattanooga store is the most recent location announced in a sizeable expansion. In the past 18 months new Gander Mountain stores have opened in: Charlottesville, Va., Valdosta, Ga., Morrisville, N.C., Lafayette, In., Opelika, Al., Florence, Al., Winston-Salem, N.C., Gastonia, N.C., Monroe, N.C., Rogers, Mn., Tuscaloosa, Al., Lewisville, Tx., Mesquite, Tx., Round Rock, Tx., San Antonio, Tx., Dothan, Al., Albany, Ga. and Tampa, Fla.
