It turns out, Gander Mountain is not going to make a comeback in Watertown.
The store in Salmon Run Mall closed up late last year, but the national chain’s new owner, Marcus Lemonis, repeatedly included it in a list of locations he planned to reopen after a liquidation process was concluded.
Earlier this week, however, Lemonis listed “the final stores that have been worked out” to reopen nationwide, with Watertown’s spot not making the cut. When asked about the mall’s store on social media in the past, Lemonis indicated he wanted to rework the leasing agreement.
That outcome, however, seems to have been taken off the table. The spot where Gander was located has remained vacant since its closing.
