WINNER - People looking for sporting goods will soon be able to run to Winner.
Runnings - a family owned general merchandise retailer headquartered in Marshall, Minnesota - announced Tuesday it has begun work on a new store in the town.
Located at 326 S. U.S. Highway 18, the building will span 60,000 square feet, more than four times larger than the current store located at 1900 U.S. Highway 18, and will hire an additional 15 to 20 employees.
Runnings is expected to open early this fall.
The company offers more than 100,000 items including sporting goods, clothing, footwear, pet supplies, houseware, farm supplies, tools and outdoor equipment, as well as hunting, fishing, archery equipment.
"We've been in the current store for quite a few years and to a point where we need a bigger building to give customers more of what they want," Store Manager Russ Temple said in a press release. "Work has finally started and we're very excited about what the new store will bring to not only Winner, but the entire region."
Runnings is building the new store on approximately 11 acres of land purchased from Mathis Family Trust in 2013. This will be the company's third new store this year as plans are in progress for new stores in Brockport, New York, and Moorhead, Minnesota.
