Camping World Opens New Supercenter In Grand Rapids, Co-Locates With American RV


Camping World, America’s largest retailer of RV and outdoor supplies and accessories, today announced the opening of a new SuperCenter in Grand Rapids, MI co-located with American RV. The new SuperCenter brings the number of the rapidly growing retailer’s stores to 69 with plans to reach the 100 mark by 2008.

Located at 201-76th St. S. W., the new SuperCenter has 4600 square feet of retail floor space. With over 8000 sku’s available from basic camping and outdoor accessories to hard to find RV parts, the full service, state-of-the-art store provides customers with all of their RV, outdoor, camping accessory and service needs.

American RV General Manager Chad Neff said, “Having a Camping World with us is a very big plus in that the partnership will allow American RV to provide all of our customers the RV products and services they want at one location. This is a new chapter in our 17 year history and we’re all very excited about it.”

Camping World President and CEO Marcus Lemonis commented, “This is our second Camping World in Michigan which is important since this is a state with a great deal of outdoor recreation. Locating with American RV gives us a presence in the western part of the state and along a corridor that many people pass going up north.”

The brisk expansion of Camping World is well timed to respond to growing consumer demand as the outlook for the RV and RV supplies and accessories market burgeons, topping lists of US growth industries. A recent study by the University of Michigan’s Survey Research Center found that one in 12 U.S. vehicle-owning households now own an RV. There are now 7.9 million households in the U.S. with a RV. This figure indicates a 58 percent rise in RV ownership since 1980. This study also anticipates similar growth in the future, thus providing the catalyst for additional Camping World stores across the country.
