No surprise there.  I went in shortly after they opened and found nothing at a price point that interested me.

So that lasted about two years and two months. What a waste.

The market is saturated with this style of outdoors stores. Gander could not compete with Bass Pro/Cabela's as well as online and smaller regional stores. So now that the assets of Gander Mountain have been bought by Camping World you will have the new camping and hunting superstores where you can get your RV and your ammo at one place.

Quote
NILES, Ohio -
The new owner of the Gander Mountain outdoor goods retail chain is Tweeting that he hasn't decided yet if the store at the Eastwood Mall Complex will ultimately be closed.
Marcus Lemonis, Star of the CNBC show “The Profit", has been responding to Tweeted questions about the future of various Gander Mountain stores since a bankruptcy court approved plans by his company Camping World to conduct inventory liquidation sales at all Gander Mountain stores.
Lemonis, Chairman and CEO of recreational vehicle product retailer Camping World, has made it clear that he wants to keep Gander World's boating business, but said his company is only obligated to continue operating a minimum of 17 of Gander Mountain's locations.

I’ve been a participant in such a discussion over on the Facebooks.  Take a look at any REI suburban design and compare to Gander’s Tulsa store.  With some modification to the front entry it would look just like an REI.  Problem solved.

It was suggested that Gander Mtn. be torn down and turned into a park but the Tulsa Suburban Retailers Coalition might object.

Now the new owner is saying that between 70 and 75 stores out of 160 will remain, no specific word on the Tulsa location yet.

I would guess that we will lose about a third of all our brick and mortar retail in Tulsa.

Measured by square footage or store count? The former I could see for sure, the later, I don't know really.

In my locale, the spot opened by Sears in the mall (an anchor tenant) will soon be filled by a sporting goods/outdoor store coincidentally as reported by your vary own Tulsa World. Dunham's Sports. Never been to one. Appears to offer a pretty diverse selection of goods, not just another Hibbett Sports (that is in the parking lot of the mall) which is predominantly apparel/shoes and some equipment for popular sports (football/basketball/soccer/baseball).

Lemonis is the guy who got hold of Good Sam's Club and kinda crapped it up...a lot.

Joel Coggins is the contractor. His Facebook photo album has a lot of pics of Rustic Cuff build-outs. Coincidentally, happens to be the same building that Rustic Cuff used for a pop up  shop on Black Friday last year.  But, who knows?  

The Mardel looks like it could be a grocery store - anyone know what it is for sure?

Can't tell is this is tongue-in-cheek or not...   Mardel is a large Christian bookstore.
