The Runnings story begins on December 5th, 1947, when founder Norman “Red” Running opened the first store in downtown Marshall, Minnesota. Runnings started as an automotive supply store and was deeply rooted in selling farm and fleet supplies until the late 80’s when additional product lines were added. And, as they say, the rest is history. In 1988, a group involving Dennis and Adele Reed purchased the company. Under the Reed’s leadership, Runnings has evolved to become a retail destination for high quality merchandise including clothing, footwear, automotive, sporting goods, farm supplies, lawn and garden, toys, housewares, tools, pet and animal supplies and more. In addition, 35 stores sell firearms.
The number of stores serving the needs of our customers has changed as well. Runnings has grown from 8 stores in 2 states to 45 stores in 7 states
The company has undergone incredible change over the years, but one thing that will never be compromised is owner Dennis and Adele Reed’s commitment to serving the needs of our customers. When you visit a Runnings store, you’re shopping an extensive selection of over 100,000 products, all built to last, and at a good value. And most importantly, we hire and train knowledgeable team members who are passionate about taking care of the customer with expert advice and hometown friendly customer service.
