ST. Paul, MN -( Autumn in Alabama is the perfect time for hiking, hunting, fishing camping and boating.

Gander Mountain is once again expanding the nation’s largest and fastest-growing network of outdoor specialty stores with a new location in Montgomery, set to open in the fall.

“Gander Mountain is already a well-known and trusted name in Alabama among those who love the outdoors, and who enjoy great traditions like hunting, fishing, hiking, boating and camping,” said David Pratt, Gander Mountain’s President and CEO. “We are thrilled to bring a new Gander Mountain store to Montgomery, and to give our friends in the region more opportunities to experience our top-quality gear and knowledgeable service at great prices.”
