Gander Mountain Introduces Outdoor Expeditions

Specialty Retailer Launches Adventure Travel Company

SAINT PAUL, Minn., June 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Sometimes the local fishing hole just doesn’t cut it. Sometimes hunters crave something more than the family cabin. In order to meet customers’ demands for wild adventures in exotic locations, Gander Mountain has launched its own full-service travel company, Outdoor Expeditions.

“We recognize the opportunity to better serve our customers in this category,” said Gander Mountain CEO Mark Baker. “We’ve always offered great gear to help customers enjoy the outdoors, and now we’re happy to offer travel packages to some exciting destinations where our customers can put that gear to use.”

“What sets this company apart,” says Travel Manager Mike Schoby, “is that someone at Outdoor Expeditions has personally been to every destination we offer. We can truly speak with first-hand knowledge on each location, with up-to-date information on all of our hunting and fishing hotspots around the world.”

Outdoor Expeditions offers a wide range of domestic and international fishing and hunting trips. “When people are booking what could be the greatest vacation of their life, they have a lot to consider. Our staff has real field experience and works to help design the best vacation package for each of our customers.”

Despite being new to Gander Mountain, Outdoor Expeditions actually has years of experience under its belt. As Jay Anderson’s Outdoor Expeditions, the company delivered quality adventure packages to customers for 17 years.
