ST. PAUL, Minn., Sept. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- With hunters spending more time afield than ever before – at close to 25 days in 2015 – Gander Mountain, the nation's largest and fastest-growing outdoor specialty retailer, kicks off the season with safety seminars and a new 'Camo Friday' program. Each Friday from September 30 through October 28, customers who show their 'camo pride' by wearing camouflage into any Gander Mountain will receive 10% off all camo products, including firearms.
Additionally, to help hunters get ready, starting on October 1 Gander Mountain will be offering thousands of hours of free seminars, just in time for hunting season. Safety seminars will be held on Saturdays and Sundays, every weekend at all Gander Mountain stores across the country. Designed to be most helpful for beginners, classes will include subjects such as 'Hunter Safety' and 'Gun Cleaning Safety.' Anyone who attends a class will receive a coupon for $20 off a purchase of $100 or more.
"We take our position as a trusted source for hunting gear and advice seriously and we hold to our commitment to offer customers the best selection and service for all of their outdoor needs," said Gander Mountain Senior Vice President of Marketing & E-Commerce Ron Stoupa. "We're excited for Camo Friday - camouflage is a functional necessity for hunters and has become a popular choice for daily attire for many of our customers to show their passion for the outdoors."
To kick off Camo Friday, Gander Mountain will be celebrating with:
- The first 50 customers wearing camo each Friday will receive a free camo koozie at each Gander Mountain.
- Consumers who share their camo pride pictures via social media using the hashtag #CamoFriday on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram will have the opportunity to win a $250 Gander Mountain gift card each week throughout the promotion.
"As the destination for all things camouflage, Gander Mountain created Camo Fridays as a way to show our pride for hunting season and reward hunters with discounts off of every camo product in our stores - - with no exclusions," said Stoupa.
