Camping World ready to pitch its tent in Boynton Beach
Company has more than 140 retail locations in 36 states
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.
