Founded in 1973, Irby Street Sporting Goods has been through three owners and two building changes, but it remains one of the largest and best place to buy sporting goods equipment in the Pee Dee area.
The company has a very large assortment of products, including more than 1,000 fishing rods and reels in stock, fishing boats, archery bows, camping equipment, rifles, even a complete archery range.
The store has moved locations from the old 1,200-square-foot building to its current 7,000-square-foot store, and it added a six-lane, 25-yard indoor archery range with a full bow shop.
Current owner and CEO Todd Stewart says he loves seeing long-time customers bring in their kids and continue the tradition of hunting or archery.
Irby Street Sporting Goods maintains a corporate office in Florence, South Carolina.
