Johnson City Gander Mountain Store Opening Date Announced
Gander Mountain has revealed its planned reopening date for its flood-wrecked store in Johnson City.
The Harry L Drive building now has a sign indicating the outdoor specialty store will be open April 29.
The Minnesota-based company last month announced it planned to resume operations at the site which was damaged by flooding in September 2011.
Gander Mountain had gone to court to get out of a 15-year lease for the property, contending it had not been sufficiently warned of the flooding risk at the site. The company was unsuccessful in its bid to break the lease.
A building permit posted at the site suggests the planned remodeling work could cost as much as $800,000.
Although Gander Mountain is in the midst of what the company describes as a "sizeable expansion," the Johnson City store is the only store in the Northeast that's opening as part of that initiative.
