A Gander Mountain store will open in Hixson by this fall.

The new 50,000-square-foot store in the Oak Park town Center on Highway 153 will be the fourth Gander Mountain in Tennessee to open.

"For many years, Gander Mountain has been a well-known and trusted name in Tennessee among those who love the outdoors, and who enjoy great traditions like hunting, fishing, hiking, boating and camping," said David Pratt, Gander Mountain's chairman and CEO. "We are thrilled to bring another new Gander Mountain store to the state, and give our friends in Chattanooga and the surrounding region more opportunities to experience our top-quality gear and knowledgeable service at great prices."

Gander Mountain's newest store will feature one of the largest selections of new and used firearms in Tennessee, together with the best selection of gear and accessories for hunting, fishing, camping, boating and archery.

"Chattanooga is known for our love of the great outdoors - from our mountains and river to downtown walking bridges and miles of bike trails," said Mayor Andy Berke. "As our city continues to grow as a world-class outdoor destination, we are excited to welcome retailers like Gander Mountain to our community."
