Camping World Terminates Agreement with Lazydays
BOWLING GREEN, KY
. -- Camping World today announced the termination of its cooperation agreement with RV retailer Lazydays RV SuperCenter in Tampa, Fla., effective immediately.
Camping World, a Kentucky based company established in 1966, has officially notified Lazydays of its termination of the cooperation agreement that was signed by local Tampa entrepreneur and philanthropist Don Wallace in 1995. During the tenure of the agreement while Don Wallace owned Lazydays, this partnership not only benefitted both companies financially but also directly led to the creation of significant job placement for the greater Tampa community.
Since Don Wallace sold the Lazydays dealership in 2004, Lazydays has operated under two separate business owners. These changes to the company, established in 1976, caused business disruption and layoffs in excess of 100 employees and as a result Lazydays inevitably filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2009, Camping World noted in a press release.
Camping World, which operates over 90 retail locations nationwide and employs 1,500 people, noted it has been a fixture in the Tampa market.
