Opus Development Corporation Selected to Build Gander Mountain Retail Store

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - Opus Development Corporation announced today that it has been selected to develop, design and build a new 52,000-sqaure-foot retail store for Gander Mountain Company in Valdosta, Ga.

The retail building will be used as a model for future Saint Paul, Minn.-based Gander Mountain stores as the hunting, fishing camping and marine products retailer looks to introduce a smaller retail concept in small-to-mid-size markets across the country. The project is scheduled for completion in late 2012. 

“We are thrilled to have been selected as a partner by Gander Mountain as they rollout this new store concept,” said John Gelderman, senior vice president, national retail development at Opus Development Corporation. “Opus is able to provide a full-service package, including development, architecture and construction to meet Gander Mountain’s retail development and we have the flexibility to go where the client needs us.”  

Opus AE Group will design the building and it will be constructed by Opus Design Build, L.L.C.  

CBRE represented Gander Mountain in this transaction.
