Midwest Marine & Sporting Goods was founded in 1974 by John and Mary Anne Berry with only $700 and oceans of ambition and drive. Because they had a family of 10 to support and knew the importance of stretching a dollar it became their mission to offer the best quality merchandise and services available at the most competitive prices to their customers. They knew their customers worked hard for their money, too.
Celebrating 37 years of business these same philosophies and values continue today in his memory with our 2nd and 3rd generation family owned and operated business. In addition to our everyday low priced merchandise, we search for quality closeouts, one of a kind, overstocks, obsolete, hard to find and discontinued merchandise to pass on to our customers the best prices we can find.
Midwest Marine has expanded our product line to include other sporting goods. We now stock giftware, hunting, fishing, shooting and archery product as well as other outdoor sporting goods accessories.
