March 7, 2005

(Hammond, LA)- Since the December opening of the newest Camping World store in Hammond, the cash registers have not stopped ringing. The economic impact of the national retailer is being felt strongly in the immediate Hammond area as well as reaching out along the I-12 and I-55 corridors.

A spectacular event has been planned for the weekend of March 10-13 which is expected to bring in crowds of RVers and campers from throughout the Gulf south region. Dixie RV Superstores' brand new, 67,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility includes a huge indoor showroom. Camping World Hammond is considered to be a flagship store for the Gold Medal Dealer network, employing 20 people and occupying 15,000 square feet.

Taking a break from the traditional ribbon cutting festivities, the weekend will kick-off with a "Lighting of the Fire" event on Thursday, March 10 at 4:30 p.m. Store officials and area dignitaries will jointly light a fire in front of the new facility followed by light refreshments. The four-day celebration will also include free lunch daily, technical demonstrations and games. Join in the excitement at Camping World on Destination Drive, just off I-12 at the Pumpkin Center/Baptist exit (35).

Local radio station WTGE 100.7 will broadcast live from Camping World between 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. on Friday. On Saturday, WYNK 101.5 will host a live remote from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.

Camping World has 41 retail locations and 2 collision repair centers. The nationwide retailer offers 8,000 products geared toward the RVing community through its retail stores, extensive mail-order catalog and online shopping network.
