  • Do any of you live near a Fleet Farm? What are your thoughts on that fine establishment? I used to live 5 minutes away from one

    Do any of you live near a Fleet Farm? What are your thoughts on that fine establishment? I used to live 5 minutes away from one when I live in Minnesota, but we moved to NC about 5 years ago. Of all the things I miss about Minnesota (other than the excellent fishing) I think I miss Fleet Farm the most. It was kind of like an old time general store where you could literally get everything at one store. Our usual fleet farm run entailed a car wash, some bags of rock salt, and my dad going and spending too much money at the hunting and fishing section and getting yelled at by my mom. Their sporting goods were always very reasonably priced and my dad always got carried away to the tune of $50. Their selection of hunting and fishing (especially ice fishing) was unmatched and the prices were far cheaper than Cabela's or anywhere else.

    Never heard of them, must be a local thing.

      The Mans Mall, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, North and South Dakota, and maybe one in the U.P. I worked in the sporting goods section when I was in high school. It was one of the coolest jobs ever, I got to play with all the new hunting and fishing stuff. When I left I kept one of my orange work shirts, it hangs in my closet to this day.

        Where in NC do you live. I'm in SC and we've got a place about 30-45 minutes south of Charlotte called Nichol's Store. It is a convenience store that started selling guns. I bought my second deer rifle there about 13 years ago. At that time they only had 8-10 guns and some fishing supplies. Now they still have the convenience store but have added on a huge sporting goods section with an archery range, lots of long and hand guns and lots of hunting supplies and clothing.
