Camping World bought Overtons in a bankruptcy auction in April?

Hell I didn't even know Overtons had filed. In true camping world fashion expect Overton's prices to triple.

An Important Message to Overton's Customers from Marcus Lemonis, CEO of Camping World & Good Sam.

We are delighted to announce that Overton’s is now part of the Camping World & Good Sam family following Camping World’s successful bid for certain Overton’s assets in a bankruptcy auction in April. Camping World & Good Sam is the nation’s largest network of RV-centric retail locations and the only provider of a comprehensive portfolio of services, protection plans, products and resources for the outdoor enthusiast. At Camping World & Good Sam, we place a high value on customer satisfaction. We are excited to serve Overton’s loyal customer base at the Greenville and Raleigh, North Carolina retail stores and at Overtons.com. By leveraging Camping World & Good Sam’s scale, operating infrastructure and product expertise, we will be able to provide new products and services to the Overton’s customer. We are very excited for the next chapter of Overton’s as part of the Camping World & Good Sam family of companies.

As part of the transaction, ownership of the Overton’s customer database is being transferred to a Camping World & Good Sam entity that will operate the new business. Camping World & Good Sam will continue to abide by the existing Overton’s privacy policy. In the event that there are any significant changes to the applicable privacy practices in the future, you will have an opportunity to decide whether to opt-out or accept such changes before they are implemented.

I think they were owned by Gander Mountain and they were acquired when Camping World bought them. Agree though, it won't be the same Overtons anymore.

Good riddance to the Gander Mountain total yuppie stores. Crappy selection for the true sportsman, and very little gun related items. The perfect liberal "sporting goods" store. Too bad about Overtons though.

Really? We're going to make this political?

I like Overton's and still do, whether in the hands of liberals or conservatives, yuppies or rednecks.

Really? An instant attack?

Did not say anything bad about Overtons. Gander Mountain was garbage. All I said. Try reading again. Not political, just the facts. IMHO

My Gander Mountain had very limited inventory as well. You would think I could have picked a some ski gloves and a rope there. They had neither. it was pretty bad, if you ask me.
