    A Letter to Good Sam Club Members:

    As Good Sam Club members, you have always been loyal to Camping World and Good Sam. In return, I have always worked to repay this loyalty with exclusive discounts, special offers and services for you.

    As you may have heard, Camping World has announced the planned acquisition of certain assets of Gander Mountain Company and Overton’s, Inc.

    Gander Mountain and Overton’s offer a full range of hunting, fishing, camping, boating and other outdoor recreation products and services. I truly feel that they are a perfect complement to the outdoor lifestyle we currently serve through Camping World and Good Sam.

    So why is this important to you as a Good Sam Club member?

    As a reward for your loyalty, it is my intention to provide you special offers and exclusive savings through Overton’s boating and Gander Mountain outdoor specialty stores and online sites. This new benefit will be rolled into your Good Sam Club membership—at no additional cost to you!

    We expect to be operating the Gander Mountain and Overton’s online business within the next 60 days. Before we take over the operations at the retail stores, Gander Mountain will have liquidating agents selling through the existing Gander Mountain inventory, which will allow us to commence operations with a fresh assortment of inventory.

    The timing of the introduction of the new benefits and services will be communicated to you in the coming weeks; but safe to say we will strive to get this up and running as soon as possible. Your benefit as a Good Sam Club member will become effective once we commence operations.

    I look forward to sharing the exciting details with you!

    Regards,
    Marcus Lemonis
    Chairman & CEO
    Camping World & Good Sam Enterprises

      Hi I’m From Canada and I was wondering if you are doing anything to increase your presents in Canada, and give Canadians who have become members a discount on produces or shipping something to help bring them into the good sams camping world enterprise.
      Thanks

      Will the Gander Mountain name stay on the online sales and the outlet stores? If so, will there be anything showing that they are part of Good Sam/Camping world? Will the stores and online sales still offer ammo and weapons along with their other fine hunting products?

      It makes the good sams membership much more interesting and exciting just knowing that you are involved in it. I love the profit and can’t believe when the idiots turn you down…especially the woman with her fancy cleaning products…lol. I have a masters degree and am a retired math teacher….please keep your show on for us.

      2 Gander Mountain Gift Cards that are now worthless. I do not check this site everyday and a few days ago I got an email in my box that informed me of the sale of Gander Mountain to Good Sam, What a ripe-off I got, $100 down the tube, that I may or may not be able to recover from Bankruptcy Court in Minnesota. This is the last time I will ask for gift cards from any company.

      As a hunter and a camper I look forward to seeing what you can do for us with your acquisition of Gander Mountain!

      As a hunter and a camper I look forward to the merger. I hope you add a lot of hunting, fishing and camping gear to Gander Mountain’s inventory. Competition for the other big outdoor company.
