Our History

Hopkins Sporting Goods, Inc. has been in business for more than 110 years. It started as a hardware, hunting, and fishing store. Soon after opening, a corner of the store began selling athletic items. Actual catalogs containing uniforms and equipment from 1909 and 1910 are still in existence today at the store.

The business evolved over the years selling more athletic items and less hardware hunting and fishing. Around 1980, Hopkins began selling only athletic equipment and clothing.

Today, Hopkins Sporting Goods, Inc. is Iowa's oldest sporting goods store. It is locally owned and provides equipment and uniforms throughout the state. With a knowledgeable staff and departments within the business including screen printing, sewing, embroidery, and equipment installation, Hopkins is a one-stop sporting goods supplier.
