ROANOKE COUNTY, Va. – Gander Mountain is reopening as Gander Outdoors. 

The Roanoke County location, which is off of I-81, will open its doors Saturday. The grand opening celebration starts at 9 a.m. 

The outdoors store has been closed for several months following a bankruptcy filing. It was announced earlier this year that the Roanoke County store was among the nearly 70 stores to reopen across the country. 

There will be free pastries and coffee in the morning. A Boy Scout troop will provide hot dogs and chips from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., while supplies last. 

Kids can paint a lure from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and build a duck call from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. 

You can also register to win one of five $100 gift cards. 

Anyone who makes a purchase of $25 or more will get a free 5-gallon bucket.
