Welcome to Bob's Sporting Goods! In 1947 Bob Schlecht Sr. "hitched" his way from Minot, ND to Longview, WA, by way of railcar roof-tops. He and his wife Lila, opened the original war surplus store in a small tent. Selling items such as Army Cots for $2.50, Canteens for 25 cents, and Wool Socks for 50 cents. The local women kept him supplied with used grocery bags. In 1956 a 6,000 square foot store was built. Over the next 40 years, 7 more building phases were completed. Most of the store was painted green, the result of one of Bob Senior's great paint bargains! We have grown. Today we still offer that old fashioned, hometown service, that will leave you with a smile! Proudly carrying The Largest Selection of Tackle in SW Washington!
