Camping World announces expansion in Cheyenne

CHEYENNE - One month after plans to add a Camping World retail location in Sidney were put on hold, the recreational vehicle retailer announced Thursday they'll be developing a new super center store in southeast Wyoming.

Wyoming's first Camping World location will be located on nine acres of land near Interstate 80 in Cheyenne. It'll feature a wide range of new and used RVs, outdoor products and accessories. It's expected to open late this year or in early 2022.

“Each location we open across the U.S. represents significant economic impact for the communities and convenient customer service and products for the 5.3 million active customers we serve," Camping World Holdings CEO and Chairman Marcus Lemonis said. "We are looking forward to developing this land and making Cheyenne our new home.”

Lemonis told News Channel Nebraska in early March plans to build a 30,000-40,000 square-foot Camping World retail store in Sidney have been paused, but he was "still focused on coming to Sidney."

He also announced plans to manufacture RV mattresses at the old Cabela's Distribution Center west of Sidney, and create a third party logistics company (3PL) to help small businesses distribute their products nationwide. 

Camping World has 170 locations across the United States, with plans for another store in Lincoln.
