Sports World Hunting Headquarters has been serving hunting enthusiasts since 1976. Today our customers venture through row after row of merchandise in a 16,000-square-foot facility, but we’ll always appreciate Sports World’s humble beginnings.
What began as an adventure between friends in the shooting industry, grew to an all-sports sporting goods store located in a 1,200 square foot facility on Lewis at 58th in the London Square Shopping Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
We’ve always based our decisions on our customers’ buying trends, so to meet a growing need in the hunting community, Sports World narrowed our focus to the most popular items. In 1980, we began specializing in hunting and shooting products and services. The strategy was so successful, we ran out of room in our London Square location!
In 1988, we moved to a facility seven times larger, to the old Petty’s Fine Foods location at the south end of London Square. The move to an 8,000-square-foot facility allowed us to once again meet our customers’ growing needs, expanding into even more hunting and shooting products.
One thing we’re learning time and again, is that our customers never lead us astray. By 1999, we expanded even more, adding more hunting apparel, including clothing and boots, and even diving in to the food service industry with our Camo Cafe.
With the expansion and addition of the cafe, business flourished and we continued to grow. So in 2004, we doubled our capacity in purchasing our current building at 41st and Sheridan. Our fourth expansion gave us a sprawling 16,000-square-foot building.
Addition of New Hunting-Related Services
Customer loyalty fed our continued growth, and market trends led us to add to the customer experience with new services: a warranty repair station and gunsmith repair shop. Now we can repair almost anything related to shooting and hunting. Our customers can either wait for their firearms at the Camo Cafe, or shop through row after row of guns, suppressors, scopes and optics, ammo, accessories, knives, safes, and just about anything else that pertains to hunting.
Need help with your Oklahoma Concealed Carry application? Our experts can help. Confused about what type of scope suits your needs? We have them all. Wondering about safes? Sports World has the best brands. Tired of wading through the transfer process? That’s what we do. We’ve spent more than 40 years building expertise and relationships to master the hunting market.
We’re grateful for the incredible success (and a little bit of stress) we’ve enjoyed through the years. As we continue to look toward the future, our customers will lead the way. So we know our future holds even more innovation, growth and prosperity.
Stop in and experience our love of customer service first-hand!
