MARQUETTE TOWNSHIP — The Upper Peninsulaís only Gander Mountain location will not be closing its doors.

Gander Mountain announced its closing 32 stores in 11 different states. Itís all part of the companyís restructuring plan.

Gander Mountain filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last Friday. The Marquette Township store was spared from the closing list.

More than twelve hundred people are expected to lose their jobs when the stores close the next few weeks.
