Another retailer of outdoor sporting goods is looking at opening stores in Maine. Gander Mountain, based in Minnesota is hoping to have a store in the Portland area open this year or early in 2007 and are considering a store in Bangor sometime down the road.

This announcement, coupled with a previous revelation that Cabela’s is considering a move into Scarborough, would bring some serious competition to L.L. Beans and Kittery Trading Post. Competition among retailers usually means lower prices for consumers.

Update: 15:15 The Boston Globe has more details on this story.
