The Sportsman's Warehouse company closed its Nampa store near I-84 and Midland Boulevard a few years ago, but now the store is back.
The company closed some of its stores as it went through a restructuring. The Nampa store was "too new" to make the cut, Manager Matt Sisco said. That's because, though it had performed "extremely well," it had been open only a year and a half and lacked a long-term track record of success, Sisco said.
Now the privately held company, based in Salt Lake City, is reopening several stores around the U.S., including ones in Las Vegas and Roanoke, Va.
Anyone who shopped there before will find similar inventory, Sisco said. "Same store, same everything," he said.
The 48,000-square-foot store has about 45 employees. It is located at 16865 N. Market Place Blvd. and is open 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
A grand opening is planned Saturday. There will be giveaways and drawings. The first 300 people through the door will get a $20 gift card and a Sportsman's Warehouse hat, Sisco said. Wildlife and hunting organizations will have representatives there to talk with customers.
