Camping World appears ready to pitch its tent in Boynton Beach.

Camping World Property just bought a freestanding retail building and parking lot in Boynton Beach – indicating the RV and RV supplies retailer may be expanding to South Florida.

A Dallas, Texas-based company, led by real estate investor Douglas M. MacMahon, sold the 88,000-square-foot building at 1520 Southwest 8th Street for $8.25 million. Records show MacMahon bought the site in 2012 for a little more than $5 million.

The retail building sits on 6.7 acres of land on the corner of I-95 and Woolbright Boulevard, and features 365 parking spaces. It joins tenants such as Home Depot, Staples and a Dunkin’ Donuts at the Shops at Woolbright shopping center.

Marcus Lemonis is chairman and CEO of Camping World and Good Sam Enterprises and is a star of the CNBC show “The Profit.”

In April 2017, his Camping World Holdings pulled Gander Mountain, an outdoors retailer now called Gander Outdoors, out of bankruptcy. In February, a shuttered Gander Mountain retail store in Palm Beach Gardens was hit with a $14 million foreclosure lawsuit.

Camping World has more than 140 retail locations in 36 states, according to its website. In Florida, its locations include Fort Myers, Kissimmee and Tampa. A spokesperson for Camping World could not immediately be reached for comment.
