43 Years of Equipping Families to Enjoy the Great Outdoors!

The Great Outdoors 


presented by: Mark’s Outdoors

A special thanks from the family at Mark’s Outdoors for allowing us to serve you for 43 years! Our doors opened in January of 1980 as a small tackle store and has expanded to what you see today! From five employees and less than 2,000 square feet to 26 employees and over 15,000 square feet! We could not have done this without you!

Mark Whitlock, Sr. and Mark Jr. in the early years. Mark Sr. ran Mark’s Outdoors for more than 32 years. Today son Mark Jr. continues the tradition of equipping families with what they need to enjoy the outdoors.

Mark Sr. and Mo started the store with the idea to put customers first and foremost. To make friends and turn them into customers. And to make them enjoy their shopping experience unlike many other stores.

43 years and going strong shows that it worked! Mark Sr. and Mo might not be with us anymore; but the family keeps the tradition going! Mark Jr. runs the store and mom Dana handles the financials. “We have the best crew members here!” says Mark Jr. “What keeps people coming back is familiar faces when you walk in the door and the family friendly atmosphere. We still try to call people by their first name when they walk into the store.” These are the things that keep Marks Outdoors going!

Thank you for 43 years of business!
