It appears a new outdoors store is headed to Peoria to replace a recently closed one.
In a Facebook video, Gander Outdoors CEO Marcus Lemonis unveiled a list of new outlets slated to open by May and June of 2018. Peoria appears about 2 minutes and 10 seconds into the video.
The address appears to be the same as the previous Gander Mountain, 5114 W. Holiday Drive.
Gander Outdoors was started after Gander Mountain went bankrupt last year. Camping World purchased the rights to the Gander Mountain store locations and the company's website.
On the store's website, Gander Outdoors lists hunting, shooting, fishing, camping, biking, paddling and water sports, and marine parts and accessories among the products it sells.
