Camping World Holdings Inc. announced today (March 14) that an agreement has been signed to acquire River City Recreation World located in Sherwood, Ark.
“Our goal with this acquisition is to add more quality manufacturers and brands, increase our presence in the market and grow the workforce,” said Marcus Lemonis, chairman of Camping World Holdings, in a press release.
The acquisition of River City Recreation World is in line with Camping World’s future growth plans and the company expects to soon announce several additional markets of expansion throughout the country in 2018.
Camping World currently operates two Arkansas locations, in Lowell and North Little Rock, with both locations specializing in service, RV sales and retail accessories.
“We will actively pursue opportunities in our existing markets over the next few years to expand market share, grow our database and add additional distribution points for our products and services,” said Brent Moody, chief operating officer of Camping World Holdings. “The addition of River City RV will accomplish all three objectives and add a top dealer in the state of Arkansas.”
