Camping World Inc. today (June 29) announced that it has acquired Long View RV Superstores, an existing RV dealership in the Tampa, Fla., area. According to a press release, the acquisition closing is scheduled for July.
Camping World of Tampa is located on I-4 just minutes from the current Camping World location. Plans are to expand the new Long View location to be the largest retail facility in the company’s almost 100 locations. The expansion will include a 14,000-square-foot Camping World retail store and a service center with over 50 bays.
“This is an incredibly exciting opportunity for Camping World,” said Marcus Lemonis, chairman and CEO of Camping World. “This location will be the flagship for Camping World retail, not only in Florida, but in the entire U.S.”
The new Camping World facility will be supported by 13 Camping World RV dealerships and retail stores already in the state of Florida. Camping World is planning on acquiring the property for the new Tampa location in the next several months and expects to open the new Supercenter in July.
Camping World said it will retain current employees while also adding staff, including RV sales associates, technicians and retail support to assist at this new location. The company is also set to soon announce acquisition of additional RV dealerships in the local area.
