Sports World Hunting Headquarters has been serving outdoor sporting 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 store 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 community, Sports World narrowed our focus to the most popular items, and in 1980 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.
Here We Are!
With the expansion and addition of the Cafe, business flourished and we continued to grow. So in 2002, we purchased our current building at 41st and Sheridan, expanding for a fourth time, and doubling our capacity with a 16,000 square foot building.
Addition of New 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.
Through the years, we’ve had incredible success (and a little bit of stress). But we’re always toward to the future. With our customers continuing to lead the way, we look forward to even more growth and prosperity.
Stop in and experience our love of customer service first-hand!
