Bish’s RV Super Center moved from Nampa to its new location at 1300 W. Overland Road in Meridian this week.

The Meridian store opened for business Wednesday, a few days after the company’s target date as it waited for its business permit to be finalized, according to digital outfitter Ken Summa. The Nampa store is closed.

Bish’s RV Marketing Director Megan Walker said the move was based on the lack of space at the Nampa location. The business has grown a lot based on the demand they received in the Treasure Valley, and it was over capacity in Nampa. The Meridian location is about 17 acres, while the Nampa location was 8 acres.

Bish’s is doubling down on everything to meet the demand — including staff, Walker said. The main building is also unlike anything anyone has seen before for an RV business. She said the focus on the architecture alone makes it different, and gives the place a cozy feel that will remind their customers of home.

“We’re hoping to stun them when they walk in the door,” Walker said.
