Camping World Inc. and Good Sam Enterprises LLC today (June 11) announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire Marty’s US RV, an existing RV dealership in Berkley, Mass., in the next 30 to 45 days. According to a press release, plans are for the location to undergo a major expansion to renovate into a larger facility including additional service bays, a new Camping World retail store and a state-of-the-art collision center. Camping World currently has nearby New England area supercenters in Chichester and Conway, N.H.
“We are pleased to begin the acquisition of Marty’s US RV and expand our market share throughout Massachusetts as well as the greater New England area,” said Marcus Lemonis, chairman and CEO of Camping World and Good Sam. “For over 22 years Marty Hanoud and family have proudly served the Boston area with top notch service and the best in products. Our decision to branch into the Boston market was fully realized only because of the quality reputation that Marty’s US RV has in their community. We expect the New England market to allow us to broaden our customer reach, build upon our market leadership position in recreational sales, and make Camping World the leading retailer in the growing outdoor market.”
The supercenter will be officially named Camping World of Boston and represents the first full-service location in Massachusetts for Camping World.
Lemonis noted, “I always look for three things: People, Process and Product in relation to enhancing our Camping World and Good Sam presence. The Hanoud Family clearly meets that test. Our goal is to add more quality manufacturers and brands, increase our presence in the market, and grow the work force. The Boston area is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts with camping areas like the Boston Harbor Islands, Cape Cod and the Myles Standish State Forest to hike, camp and just enjoy life. We are excited to begin serving this market.“
The new supercenter in the Boston market will add to Camping World’s future growth plans and the company expects to soon announce several additional markets of expansion throughout the country.
Camping World of Boston will also be adding positions for seasoned and professional RV sales associates, technicians and retail support as the facility expands in addition to the current staff at the Marty’s US RV location.
