Dixie RV Superstores opened a new 67,000-square-foot facility today (Dec. 20) in Hammond, La., featuring a Camping World RV accessories store.
The RV dealer, which also has an outlet in Baton Rouge, moved its former Hammond operations to the new facility, located on I-12 in close proximity to I-55 and I-10.
Camping World, based in Bowling Green, Ky., will occupy over 11,000 square feet of retail space and employ 20 people in Dixie RV’s showroom. The store represents the latest expansion in the company’s Gold Medal Dealer program, launched in June of 2003.
Dixie RV Superstores is looking for Camping World to increase traffic at the new site.
“RVers from Beaumont, Texas to Mobile, Alabama are eagerly anticipating the opening of our new facility and the birth of this alliance,” said Greg Lala, managing partner of Dixie RV SuperStores.
With the opening of the Hammond store, Camping World has 39 retail locations and two collision repair centers.
