A Gander Outdoors store is scheduled to open sometime in May at 2140 Edgewood Rd. SW in Cedar Rapids, at the location of a former Gander Mountain that closed in 2016.

Gander Mountain went through bankruptcy, but was acquired by Bowling Green, Ky.-based Camping World, which rebranded the store into Gander Outdoors.

The Gander Mountain store that previously operated on Edgewood Rd. closed in 2016 in preparations for a new store on Blairs Ferry Road, but those plans were halted by the bankruptcy.

An earlier news release indicated the store will employ 55 people.
