Nearly 60 years ago, two brothers (Bob and Ed) came together to bring their dreams to fruition by opening a store to share their love of military surplus and the great outdoors. Over the years, the business has been passed down from parent to child, and several generations later, we are proud of the legacy we have built.
Many of you have shopped with us for decades, some of you are new to the fun and funky place that is Ed’s, some of you may have driven by a hundred times and know us as a local landmark. You may only visit us once per year for your fishing license, a unique piece for a Halloween costume, or the perfect gear for your camping trip. Or you might be one of our regulars who loves to come in just to share how big the fish you caught on our lures was. Whoever you are, you’ve been a part of our community that has grown for more than half a century.
That being said, our little old shop has finally been hit with the realities of the 21st century and have made the difficult decision to close our brick & mortar location and move all sales to our online site – www.edssurplus.com.
Our family is grateful for the years of fish stories and “did you see the size of those antlers!” We are grateful for your patronage which has provided livelihoods for generations of our friends and family, dating back to the 1950s. We are grateful for every opportunity we had to help you embrace your love of the outdoors.
Our final day in this location will be Oct. 31. Please come see us before that date, and after that, we’ll see you online!
