(WQOW) -- News 18 has confirmed that Gander Outdoors will be coming to Eau Claire.
Company officials told News 18 that they will be opening a store in Eau Claire at the former Gander Mountain location. As we've reported, that Eau Claire store closed last year following a merger with Camping World.
Details are scarce, but a company spokesman confirmed the store will go into the old Gander Mountain location. A specific opening date has not been confirmed, but a company executive did post on Facebook that they hoped to open all new stores by the end of June.
