That sucks because I like his show The Profit.  I figured he'd be too careful to let his emotions get to him but damn... I mean, who does he think shops at Gander and Camping World?  Probably a lot of Trump supporters.  Dumbass.

I definitely won't be stopping by the local Gander Mountain. But I couldn't anyway because it went out of business.

This just confirms why it closed. Along with their stupid high prices.

Last time I bought something from them was......hmmm.....never.

My old man bought stuff from Gander way back in the day through catalogs.

Is there a published list of businesses this guy Marcus Lemonis owns?

Why stop with avoiding his latest aquisition Gander Mountain,  when we can avoid spending a dime in any and all of his other businesses as well ?

Thanks for that. Happy to see I don't know what most of those are and the ones I do recognize I don't patronize.

Went to a G. M. for the first time back in May. The parking lot was empty and I thought the place might be closed. Nope, walked in and it was a ghost town. I looked at their gun stuff, specifically reloading, and saw it was over-priced.

This Lemonis guy is a dope.


EDIT to remove the auto-link that appeared when I typed in the full name of the store.

I went to the Gander Mountain store north of Richmond once.

They're damn prices were more outrageous than even Bass Pro.

They went out of business and a local gun/sports store moved in (expanded) and I shop there pretty often.

Gander who???

Even if you think that, why would you say it?  How could explicitly telling approximately half of the country to not shop at your store be a good idea?

No one sits around wondering what the political opinions are of the CEO of a failing outdoor supplies store.  If he hadn't said anything, no one would be saying "well jeez I wonder what the opinions were of that Gander Mountain CEO!".

I'm past giving a shit about what people think, I just don't understand how a CEO could be dumb enough to say something like that publicly.  

I'm sure it sucks enough to be a Gander Mountain executive trying to right the ship of a failing company, but then to have your CEO come out and tell half the country to not buy stuff from your store... FFS.

In a chaotic Tuesday news conference, Trump appeared to equate torch-bearing white nationalists with the protesters who demonstrated against them.

Such a fine piece of writing. Those demonstraters aren't any better than the nazis.

There was some really good deals over the last 3 weeks at the local Roanoke,Va store that is closing. Firearms were marked down 40%-50%. I bought a Savage Hog hunter .308 and a Savage 220f 20ga slug gun for $630. They had a few Remington 700 ADL combos for $300 as well.  Leupold bases and rings were $8. There were plenty deals to be had.

Gladly not shop there.

This company is listed as CWH on the NYSE; Camping World Holdings, Inc.  They also own Overton's so I will not be buying there either.  Overton's is the likely company owned by CWH that I would likely purchase from.

No more, and it's not a problem because in the past 2 years there are other online vendors that beat Overton's prices.

You guys got it all wrong I believe. Lemonis is ceo of Camping World who Bought gander mountain out of

Seems many are missing the history and it's not even a statue in a park somewhere.

Gander Mountain sucked balls and filled bankruptcy.
At the end of April 2017, Marcus buys defunct company and liquidates inventory.
New reborn company owned by Marcus will be called Gander Outdoors.

Overton's was Gander Mountain's "catalogue" business which they tried unsuccessfully to sell off before the Gander Mountain bankruptcy.

When Gander went tits up, all of their merchandise stock was purchased  by three liquidators who were actually the ones keeping the doors open and running the sales.

Lemonis bought the company name and some of the property leases and most of the stores will be closing.

The new, much smaller, company will be renamed Gander Outdoors and the product mix will lean towards camping and RV sales.

Wow, Camping World too? Seems like most of their customers would be conservatives and supporters of Trump in the last election. I spent a couple hundred in one of their stores last year when we bought some supplies for our camper.

Not a problem. Their local store is located near a bunch of other camper/camping supply outfits that will get my business from now on.

Those sales were run by the independent liquidators who purchased all of Gander Mountain's inventory, not by the original Gander Mountain, or Lemonis's new company Gander Outdoors.

I've been a Good Sam member for many years and only just re-upped at the end of May.

I just emailed them and requested a refund.

I know, snowballs chance in hell.

They won't get any more of my money next year.

We had just joined last year while at CW in order to save a few bucks on whatever we were buying at the time. Just got the renewal notice in the mail and chucked it into the trash. We hadn't bought anything in the year since. It ain't like buying camping supplies is a weekly event where you need to be part of a savings club anyway.
