Sportsman’s Warehouse was founded by Bill Hayes in 1986 in Midvale, Utah. The company sells clothing, footwear, and gear which caters to sports-minded people with interests in hunting, shooting, ammo and reloading, camping, fishing, and other outdoor recreational activities.
Zack’s and other accounting firms are bullish on buying stock in the company, noting that they have made favorable changes to the company in the past 18 months. Time notes that Cabela’s, Bass Pro Shops (which owns Cabela’s) and Sportsman’s Warehouse are the last remaining sports retailers that are willing to sell firearms.
The company currently has 88 locations, but will soon open more after acquiring several of Dick’s Field and Stream stores in September 2019.
Since Dick’s Sporting Goods has dropped their firearm and ammo section, stores such as Sportsman’s Warehouse has found this to be a boon to their sale of firearm’s.
Sportsman’s Warehouse is publicly traded on the NASDAQ under the ticker symbol: SPWH. Headquarters are located in Midvale, Utah.
