MidwayUSA Celebrates 47 Years of Serving Customers

MidwayUSA Celebrates 47 Years of Serving Customers by MidwayUSA
Columbia, MO -

To our Valued Customers,

It was high noon on the 18th of June 1977 when MidwayUSA opened for business. After 6-years in the Air Force, our founder, Larry Potterfield, turned his lifelong love of guns, hunting, and shooting into a career. But it takes more than ‘love of the game’ to be successful. For Larry, it took a loving wife, a supportive family, some intuitive competence, a little business acumen, great Employees, and a bunch of Loyal Customers.

It’s been 47 years since Larry and Brenda greeted MidwayUSA’s first Customer in that small 1,600-square-foot gun shop in Columbia, MO. A lot has changed since ‘77, but these important things will always remain the same: Customers come first, Employees are like family, Suppliers are our partners and friends, and we continuously improve everything – always. These days, we’re not able to thank each Customer face-to-face like when we first opened shop, so please accept this sincere note of thanks for helping make MidwayUSA so successful.

Thank you for loyally supporting MidwayUSA for our first 47 years. It’s truly been our pleasure. Thanks for your business!

Matt Fleming,

President & CEO
