Gander Mountain to open Myrtle Beach area store in spring 2015

Outdoor retailer Gander Mountain will open its second South Carolina store next spring adjacent to Tanger Outlet on U.S. 501.

The company announced Friday that the store would be open this fall, but changed the date in a later new release.

The store is to feature one of the largest new and used firearms selections in the state, according to a news release, as well as men’s and women’s active outdoor and casual clothing plus a large group of gear and accessories for hunting, fishing, camping boating and archery.

It will be located in a 46,500 standalone building next to the outlet stores.

“On behalf of the entire city, let me say how excited we are about Gander Mountain and the decision to locate here,” Myrtle Beach Mayor John Rhodes said.

The Grand Strand is home as well to Bass Pro Shops, which has a store at Myrtle Beach Mall.

Gander Mountain recently opened a store in North Charleston.
