August 25, 2021
LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Camping World Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CWH) (“Camping World”), America’s Recreation Dealer, today announced plans to aggressively expand its national footprint through the opening of 20 or more new greenfield locations over the next three calendar years, in addition to strategic and opportunistic acquisitions.
