    Coming soon to the Charlottesville outdoor scene, Gander Mountain is on track to open a 45,000 sq. foot store near the US 29-Woodbrook Drive intersection.
    The new store will feature a large selection of new and used firearms; gear specific to some of the finer outdoor traditions, fishing, hunting, hiking, and camping; as well as top-quality apparel from brands like The North Face, Columbia, Under Armour, GSX, Mountain Hardware, and Carhartt and both men's and women's footwear from brands like Asics, Merrell, Rocky, Reebok, Keen, Teeva, New Balance, Brooks, Patagonia, Timberland, LaCrosse, Itasca, Saucony, and Solomon.

    "We are very excited to welcome Gander Mountain to our community," said Albemarle County Board of Supervisors Chair Ann Mallek.  "Gander Mountain is a widely-respected, high quality retailer and is a perfect fit for Albemarle County's well-established reputation as a thriving outdoor recreation destination."

    The new location will be Virginia's fourth Gander Mountain store, after stores in Fredericksburg, Winchester, and Roanoke.  For information concerning the opening of the new store and the special events, activities, and promotions that will be part of the grand opening celebration, visit
