Camping World set to expand in Wisconsin, Florida

By

LINCOLNSHIRE -- RV and outdoor retailer Camping World has acquired property in Saukville, Wis., and Fort Pierce, Fla, for expansion and future development to meet customer needs for product and service in new markets.

Plans are under way to expand the company footprint with two additional locations in high traffic, outdoor centric markets.

"These are great markets for Camping World/Good Sam to expand to," said Marcus Lemonis, chairman and CEO of Camping World. "These locations fit nicely into our existing footprint and have a strong base on Campingworld.com customers as well as Good Sam Members already in the area. We are excited to move forward in our own growth while serving our customers' outdoor, RV and camping needs."

The Camping World of Milwaukee and Camping World of Fort Pierce will feature motor homes and towables from the finest manufacturers and brands including Winnebago Industries, Fleetwood, Thor Motor Coach, Itasca, Coleman, Heartland, Keystone, Forest River, Cross Roads, Monaco, Holiday Rambler, Jayco, Starcraft, Coachmen and more.

"These new locations position Camping World for continued growth in both Florida and Wisconsin. Today the company operates a store in Madison, Wisconsin and in nearby Island Lake, Illinois. In Florida, the existing 13 store Florida network will be enhanced with the new Ft. Pierce location. Our Florida customers continue to embrace our growing presence in the sunny state," said Johnny Sirpilla, chief business development officer for Camping World/Good Sam. "We look forward to delivering the highest quality and outstanding service that Camping World customers have come to know and expect across the country."
