Just when it looked like sporting goods chain Gander Mountain would be closing all of its remaining stores, along comes a CNBC star asthe chain’s new owner saying he will keep at least 70 of the chain’s 126 stores open.
Marcus Lemonis, star of CNBC’s The Profit, bought Gander Mountain assets in bankruptcy court and has been reassuring employees and customers on his Twitter account that he plans to stand by his pledge to keep many of the hunting and fishing chain’s stores open.
“About 10 days ago I bought all of the assets, all of the intellectual property, all of the trademarks, all of the leases,” he said in an interview on Sunday morning. “A liquidator bought the inventory that’s in the stores and they have the right to sell that inventory down.”
He added, however, “Ultimately we control the leases … every single property. And my intention is to keep at least 70 open.”
