Gander Outdoors closes Greensburg location | TribLIVE.com

2117658_web1_gtr-GanderClose27-010319Less than two years after reopening under the Gander Outdoors name, the Greensburg location has permanently shut its doors.

A sign reads: “It is with great regret that we announce the closing of Gander Outdoors of Greensburg, PA. We have enjoyed serving our customers in the community and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by the closure of the store.”

A worker who was at the store Friday said the location closed Dec. 22.

The move comes months after Camping World Holdings Inc., the entity that bought Gander Mountain’s assets in bankruptcy proceedings in 2017, according to a news release.

Shortly after the company acquired the Gander Mountain name, they reopened 69 former Gander Mountain stores as Gander Outdoors, including the 31,000-square-foot Greensburg location.

The former Monroeville Gander Mountain was not reopened, and eventually became a Goodwill in March, while the Greensburg location had a grand opening celebration in April 2018.

Dan Dibartola, 47, of Greensburg, was looking to buy a fishing license Friday when he discovered the Greensburg store was closed. He noted he had purchased a three-year membership to the store about six months ago.

Greensburg police arrested two area men Wednesday for allegedly providing a fentanyl-laced heroin dose that killed a 48-year-old woman last summer.

More than 100 floats, bands, dance companies and fire trucks participated in the parade, which lasted more than an hour.

The grand marshals in the parade were two of the city’s former mayors — Scott Brown and the man who succeeded him, Daniel Fajt, whose tenures covered the 1980s and the 1990s. Two of the city’s more recent mayors, Karl Eisaman and Ronald Silvis, were unable to attend, but were recognized with a banner honoring them and others who held the office.

Greensburg re-enactment brings Jesus’ trial to courthouse steps | TribLIVE.com

Dozens of people braved wind and rain on Good Friday to attend the 25th annual “Way of the Cross” drama in downtown Greensburg.

For the 17th time, Rick Zabrosky reprised his role as Jesus in the hours before his crucifixion — driven relentlessly through the streets of Greensburg by eight Roman soldiers.

“It truly brings the Scriptures to life,” Zabrosky, of Greensburg, said. “I have been stopped after the event by several people who joined the procession and told how moving it was and how it brought tears to their eyes.”

The re-enactment started on the steps of the Westmoreland County Courthouse with Jesus’ trial before Pontius Pilate. Following his sentencing, he was led by the guards down a route comprising South Main Street, West Otterman Street, South Pennsylvania Avenue and West Third Street.
