Camping World Re-Opening
Camping World of Draper is an 40,000 square foot facility which includes 12,000 square feet of retail space. The SuperCenter stocks 8,000 RV and outdoor supplies and accessories. With 8 state-of-the-art service bays, Camping World of Draper is able to provide customers with expert repair and installation services.
According to General Manager Corey Harward, "We wanted to celebrate co-locating with FreedomRoads dealer Ardell Brown RV and what better way than to have a Grand Opening over again. Our customers loved it the first time and we can again offer a number of attractive specials to them."
Those specials, which will run from Thursday September 14th through Sunday, September 17th, include door prizes, and four day only specials. A free lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. each day. In addition, President's Club memberships will be available at a significant discount during this period.
"We very pleased to be co-located with Ardell Brown RV, a premiere dealership which enjoys a great reputation in the region," said Camping World President Mark Boggess. He added, "This is also great for our customers. We know that they appreciate these co-locations because they make shopping and getting service for their RV's much more convenient and efficient. This is one of a number of key reasons why we are growing, and doing so with the expectation of exceeding 100 SuperCenters by 2008."
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.
