Grinnell, Iowa (April 12, 2016) – The 77-year-old, Iowa-based firearm industry giant Brownells, Inc. has opened its first ever retail store location in Grinnell, Iowa. Known worldwide for its all-things-firearms website – Brownells.com – and their enormous catalogs, the Grinnell retail store marks the company’s first brick and mortar location.
The 7,000 sq. ft. retail store, attached to Brownells’ new 245,000 sq. ft. distribution center, is located at 3006 Brownells Parkway in Grinnell, Iowa, just a few yards off Interstate 80 at the 182 mile marker.
Visitors to the new retail location will experience one of the nicest and most unique gun stores they’ve ever visited. They’ll be greeted by nearly 1,200 new and used firearms, plus a large selection of ammunition, optics, parts and accessories, all set against an outdoorsy backdrop with rich wood accents and a world-class taxidermy collection. If customers don’t find what they’re looking for on the shelves, they’re invited to order from the warehouse where any of the nearly 100,000 firearms-related items will be delivered to the store in minutes.
“Our company has been family-owned and Iowa-based for 77 years,” said third-generation owner and CEO, Pete Brownell. “We’ve done business nationally and internationally for decades, but we’re excited to have an Iowa focus now with our retail store. What’s most unique about this store is that it’s located in the same walls as our distribution center. This equates to a fantastic customer experience and the best of both worlds; a beautiful retail store to transact and access to a huge selection of products unrivaled anywhere in the world.”
Brownells retail store hours are as follows:
Monday: 9AM – 6PM
Tuesday: 9AM – 6 PM
Wednesday: 9AM – 6PM
Thursday: 9AM – 8PM
