With the bankruptcy and closure of Gander Mountain stores what will happen with Overton's?

I have read that Camping World is taking over a limited amount of the Gander locations but since Overton's is owned by Gander I'm not sure how this will play out.

Any insight??????

Was told that CW was going to use Overton's and keep it running.

Good, I'm glad they will stay in operation.

I've been told anywhere from 15 to 80 Gander Mountain stores will be left open after the liquidation. They will start swapping out the product to make room for CW stuff.

Not only is CW planning to keep Overton's up and running, they are actually going to start opening brick and mortar locations. Supposedly starting in VA.

That is unexpected, but cool if it happens. Where did you here this?

Because brick and mortar shops have a long and profitable future....

I used to always order stuff from Overton's but I find they tend to be a more expensive. However, there are times when they offer sales and free shipping and then they can compete. I would imagine a store of there size could do something to get free two day shipping.

20% sale going on today for Cinco de Mayo, and free shipping on orders over $25. I like Overton's personally, they seem to have a good selection of general boating stuff. Hope they remain that way.

Sale said "Sitewide" but doesn't work for the stuff I wanted.

Yep, I noticed that too. Only worked on a few items; certainly not sitewide :-/

They are aware of the issues and should be resolved in the next few hours. They indicated that if you use Chrome, you should not encounter any issues.

Marcus Lemonis. Up to 30 potential new stores...plan is to co-locate them with CWs when possible.

Overtons was historically the go-to source for most things watersports from back in the days when it was catalog shopping (pre world wide web). Especially when you are located out in the sticks... southern NH. Still love them and use them. But as we get deeper into skiing thru the course... Performance Ski is becoming my favorite. Both have always provided great service and products that we love (and day-dream of) using. Both are businesses that I will continue to patronize.

Still no fix - can someone go out to their site using Firefox and shop for a boat cover?

I'd like to know if it's on my end or not.

Thanks in advance

I was able to shop for a cover that would fit your 197. The 20% code worked on that. I was using IE 11

The code works site-wide and has exclusions listed (http://www.overtons.com/customer-service/offer-restrictions-promo.shtml?icID=HPM). No Ronix for example - been this way for years... always wondered what in the world Amway has to do with them.

I'm glad to see Overton's will continue operating.

I managed to get in there to order a cover. I did not order the best cover since I do not trailer my tractor, so I hope it will be as good as the one I have now. Still, I got $70 off.

Gonna look at dock bumpers, I was less than impressed with the costco ones, they're going back.

Just did a sizable order last week with an Overton's 15% off deal across the board plus free shipping.

Still look forward to the spring catalogue and keep it on the back of the throne for several weeks.

Yeah - wife had problem last night. It appeared to take the order and showed the 20% on the screen - but with an 'In Progress" popup message and spinning wheel. While that was going on - we got an acknowledgement with the order - but no discount. Waited a long time but progress indicator never cleared. Then this morning we get a message that our order was incomplete and the cart was saved. We'll see what it looks like when she goes back.

I was on the fence about getting a new wakeboard but Overton's had some good sales AND 20% off when I went on line today. Figured, why not?
When I bring out the new board for the first time, the wife will say "When did you get that?"
What? I had this thing last year!
