Founded in the early 1960’s by Robert Sturgis, Gander Mountain began as a small store in Wilmot which sold various shooting supplies. Prior to establishing the company, Sturgis had felt unsatisfied with the lack of accessible high quality hunting gear in his local Wisconsin town. Eventually building up an impressive reputation in the Midwest, his mail catalog business was soon met with booming success. Expanding his inventory, he later started to market a wide array of products from shotguns to archery equipment. Since their early days, Gander Mountain has grown to become one of the most popular outdoor gear retailers in the United States. Known for their unique “large format” stores, which range from 50,000 to 120,000 square feet, they currently sell hundreds of different items including camping gear, fishing supplies, hunting equipment and more. To date, there are over 150 locations across 26 states in the country.
Not missing out on the opportunity to take part in this year’s Black Friday event, Gander Mountain has just recently released their exclusive sales flyer for the upcoming holiday weekend. From the looks of it, the Wilmot-based company will lowering the prices for dozens of items- if you happen to be an avid outdoors-man who’s looking to replace some of your old gear, now’s the best time to do so. Unlike some of the other outdoor recreation stores out there who will be closed on Thanksgiving, Gander Mountain will be open nice and early at 8AM on Thursday, November 24th, 2016- so you’ll have plenty of time to get your shopping done. As an extra bonus, they will also be giving their customers a free $20 gift card when a purchase of $100 or more is made on Thanksgiving Day. Considering the fact that many products will be up to 50% off, supplies will be limited- so try to get to the store early if you can. If you’d like to shop online via their official site, Gander Mountain will also be offering free shipping with no minimum purchase through the holidays.
Their biggest sales event of the year, Gander Mountain will be discounting over a hundred different items from high-quality tents to heavy-duty gun safes. For Cyber Monday (November 27th and 28th, 2016), they will also be offering exclusive deals online where you can save $20 off every $100, $50 off every $250 or $100 off every $500.
