NAMPA, Ida. — Bish’s RV Super Center will move from Nampa to its new location at 1300 W. Overland Road in Meridian over the weekend, says Marketing Director Megan Walker.
The RV dealership stayed open for business in Nampa all last week, but Walker says the business plans to close the store this weekend to move all of its equipment to Meridian. She says employees hope the business will be open at the Overland location as soon as next week.
Walker says the move was based on the lack of space at the Nampa location. The business has grown a lot based on the demand it received in Treasure Valley, and it was over capacity in Nampa. The Meridian location is about 17 acres, while the Nampa location was 8 acres, according to a story by the Idaho Press Tribune.
