ONALASKA, Wis. (WKBT) - A popular outdoors retailer facing financial trouble will not be closing its Onalaska location.
Gander Mountain filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last week, while also announcing plans to close 32 of its 162 stores across the country.
The company's Eau Claire location is on the list of stores slated to close, but Gander Mountain tells News 8 the Onalaska location will remain open while the company is restructured.
"We're grateful for the continued support of our employees, our customers and our trade partners as we move forward with restructuring," the company said in a statement.
The Onalaska store employs between 20 and 30 people full-time and another 20 to 30 on a part-time basis.
