Greensburg to be site of Gander RV Sales store

On the heels of opening a Gander Outdoors store in Greensburg, Camping World Holdings Inc. plans to open a Gander RV Sales store, the parent company said .

The Greensburg store will be one of 36 and only two in Pennsylvania that Camping World Holdings plans to open by the spring of 2019.

The nation’s largest network of RV retailers, Camping World announced Thursday the launch of Gander RV Sales as a way to increase RV sales.

“We have always viewed Gander Outdoors as the most cost-effective method to increase our RV sales presence and grow our Good Sam Club, particularly in key RV markets where we are underpenetrated,” said Marcus Lemonis, chairman and CEO. “It is not by coincidence that the Gander Outdoors locations selected are in key markets with a very strong RV registration base and areas that we have been targeting for growth.”

Camping World owns and operates 133 RV dealerships nationwide. In 2017, the company acquired the assets of Gander Mountain in bankruptcy proceedings and announced its intention to reopen 69 stores, including the ones in Greensburg and Johnstown, as Gander Outdoors.

The Greensburg Gander Outdoors reopened in April at Greensburg Commerce Park, 1040 Towne Square Drive. It is unclear whether the Greensburg Gander RV Sales will open at the same location.

The company said it has made “significant” investments in technology and infrastructure at the Gander Outdoors stores and has laid the groundwork for the planned launch of up to 40 Gander RV Sales locations over the next 15 months.
