ALGONQUIN – The Opus Group recently announced plans to build three 52,000-square-foot retail buildings for St. Paul, Minnesota-based retailer Gander Mountain.

The new retail stores will be located in Augusta, Georgia; Newnan, Georgia and Algonquin. Construction on the Algonquin store started earlier this year.

Opus has previously completed four retail buildings for Gander Mountain in Alabama and Georgia. 

“Our work with Gander Mountain is a testament to the value of strong partnerships and creative collaboration,” said John Williams, vice president of Opus Design Build LLC. “We look forward to continued work with Gander Mountain as they further their expansion into new markets.” 

The new retail facilities will help Gander Mountain achieve its vision for a smaller, more open concept retail space, according to a news release from Opus.

An open floor plan organized in a circular path will allow customers to conveniently move throughout the mercantile floor and help to accommodate large outdoor recreation goods and equipment.
