Gander Mountain to close; Green Top to move in

May 31, 2012 3:05pm

Big news for local anglers and hunters. This has been rumored about for a couple of years. From a Gander Mountain press release:

Gander Mountain has announced that it has entered into a transaction pursuant to which Green Top Sporting Goods will relocate to Gander Mountain’s 67,000 square foot store located in NorthCross Center at 10150 Lakeridge Pkwy, Ashland, VA, and Gander Mountain will exit the Richmond market.

Gander Mountain will continue to operate at the location through July 2012 and will be offering meaningful discounts and promotions during the next two months.

Current employees were recently notified of the change and certain employees have been offered bonus payments to stay through July. All employees were encouraged to apply for open positions at other Gander Mountain locations if they are able to relocate.

“Green Top Sporting Goods was looking to expand and offered Gander Mountain a unique opportunity to redeploy assets to its previously announced expansion plans in a cost-effective manner,” said Eric Jacobsen, executive vice president for Gander Mountain. Terms and conditions of the transaction are confidential.
