Company seeks “going-concern” sale to complete restructuringOperations remain ongoing during process; employee pay, benefits protected
St. Paul, MN – Gander Mountain Company announced today that, to maximize the opportunity to achieve a “going-concern” sale of its business, it and certain of its subsidiaries have filed voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code.
Today’s action is the result of an in-depth review of the company’s strategic options undertaken in recent months to preserve the value of the company and position it for long-term success. Like many retailers, Gander Mountain experienced challenging traffic patterns and shifts in consumer demand resulting from increased direct-to-customer sales by key vendors and accelerated growth of e-commerce. Despite aggressive actions to improve the efficiency of the company’s retail operations and support functions, the underlying financial impact from underperforming stores and unproductive, excess inventory hampered efforts to create a sustainable path forward.

A three-judge federal appeals court in the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit Court has upheld the earlier ruling of U.S. District Judge James Robart that put President Trump’s temporary travel ban on hold.

Should the ideologically divided Supreme Court find itself unable to reach a majority decision, however, the 9th Circuit’s ruling would remain in place.
