Two stores have already reopened, with two more to open this week.

Marcus Lemonis, host of CNBC investment competition "The Profit" and co-owner of Camping World Holdings created Gander Outdoors after buying the assets of Gander Mountain. They plan to have up to 10 Wisconsin locations.

Lemonis's company, Camping World Holdings, purchased Gander Mountain in an April bankruptcy auction, promising to keep at least 70 of the 162 stores open. "We believe that we're going to be able to generate solid sales, but more importantly, solid profitability out of those", he told analysts last month. The outdoor equipment retailer filed for bankruptcy in spring 2017.

"Plans are in place for the long-anticipated and eagerly-awaited Gander Outdoors to opens its doors in the Wichita, KS market to the public for the first time in early March to early June", the release said.

At least 16 injured as fire devours building in Bronx
The latest blaze came less than a week after another fire in the Bronx killed 12 people . The mayor said a child playing with a stove apparently touched off last week's blaze.

Lemonis made the announced in a video posted on Facebook and Twitter. Since the Company's founding in 1966, Camping World has grown to become one of the most well-known destination for everything RV, with over 135 retail locations in 36 states and comprehensive e-commerce platform.

Founded in 1972, Erehwon has three stores in the Chicago area and a flagship in Milwaukee.

The acquisitions help Camping World's core business, too, with more products to sell to RV customers in need of gear, along with adding new camping customers who either now or in the future may become interested in buying an RV.
