Great American Group and Tiger Group to Close 32 Gander Mountain Stores Nationwide

LOS ANGELES, March 30, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Great American Group (GA), a leading provider of advisory and valuation services, and a subsidiary of B. Riley Financial, Inc. (NASDAQ:RILY), and Tiger Capital Group announced today that they have been engaged by Gander Mountain Stores, an outdoor specialty retailer, to facilitate the liquidation of 32 of its stores nationwide.

The St. Paul, Minnesota-based retailer filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on March 10th and intends to continue operating its remaining 137 stores. The liquidation sales in the 32 locations began on Thursday, March 23rd, with inventories valued at over $160 million.

"Gander Mountain is well known for carrying today's most sought-after brands," said Scott Carpenter, President of GA's Retail Solutions division. "Many of these brands are rarely, if ever, discounted, so shoppers will want to come in early to take advantage of these sales while selection lasts."

Consumers can expect to find discounts on brands such as Under Armour, Yeti, The North Face, Coleman, GoPro, Shimano, Columbia, Guide Series, GSX, Carhartt, Merrell, Keen, New Balance, Reebok, Rocky and more. Discounted categories include shooting sports, hunting, fishing, camping, marine, apparel, footwear and outdoor lifestyle.

Furniture, fixtures and equipment will also be on sale at steep discounts as part of the liquidation event.
