Gander Mountain Location - speculate wildly

According to the city, a large retailer that is not already in BCS has made an offer on the Gander Mountain property. They won't announce a name until the deal is finalized (if it ever is).

What is your guess on who it is?

"Retailer" huh? Dick's. Costco (a little small i'd think though)

I hadn't thought about Dick's but that would make sense. They could probably move into a Gander location without too much re-work.

As I said on the coming and going thread, I heard in March that Belk was interested in a College Station location, but I am not sure if that would be the best spot for that.

Kind of a loose definition of "retailer" but a Whole Foods maybe?

Proof? Because I don't believe you.

The Whole Foods story was an April Fools "joke" from the EatBCS guy that posts the same three stories over and over.

The EatBCS guy is a looney tune who has like 10 pages and shares the same info amongst all of them, along with posts from his personal page that are conspiracy kink about the city. He doesn't even live in this area...

He does seem off. What is his tie to the area if he doesn't live here?

Almost a whole page of replies and not one person has suggested a chicken fingers/tenders place.

Who knows? I doubt it's the diverse culinary experience of the Brazos Valley. Lol

I'd guess Dicks.

2 reasons. First , considering what a cash cow our Academy is it would do well. Second , as noted they can pretty easily convert that spot.

If not Dicks my backup guess would be Costco.

- Dick's Sporting Goods is probably the closest realistic guess, but I'm going to also suggest Burlington Coat Factory.
- Belk is plausible and they may show up in CS at a later date but probably not that location.
- It's too small for Costco, besides, they would want to build new
- It won't be a grocery store, because H-E-B is building a new store, Kroger wouldn't build it since it would cannibalize Bryan (and Bryan is a good store with good access), and it's too poor for Whole Foods. Any other grocery store is way out of their core market.

Dicks has had financial issues so I doubt they will be expanding here.

Didn't Dick's just make a big deal about their decision not to sell "ASSAULT WEAPONS"?

Doubt if we will drop by if they do move in!!

Dick's will go out of business if they go in there. Academy is superior in every way.

I heard on the radio that Silk Stockings closure had left a void and that new owners wanted the space available at Gander or old Academy.

Yep.

Less expensive and if they aren't they price match.
Texas based.
Stayed out of the political fray this time.

Dick's would be foolish to move to this town. The parking lot would look like Gander.

I'm guessing that there isn't a serious offer on that location. It sounds like a sales pitch to me to drum up interest in the location.

The clothing and equipment always seems a better quality at Dick's than Academy. The golf section is also far superior. I like academy, but I think of it more like Walmart on quality.

wish we could get a Dick's. They are so much nicer than Academy. But, I tend to agree that it might not make it here, given our demographics. Suppose I'll just keep shopping at the one in Pflugerville. Gives me an excuse get out of town.
