Runnings started as an automotive supply store in December of 1947, when founder Norman A. “Red” Running opened his first store in Marshall, Minnesota. An advertisement was taken out in the Marshall newspaper to announce the prestigious event.
Today, Runnings operates 31 retail stores throughout Minnesota, the Dakotas and Montana. We sell farm and livestock equipment and supplies, hunting and fishing equipment, housewares, automotive goods, plumbing, electrical, clothing, footwear, hardware, lawn and garden supplies, paint, pet supplies, sporting goods, and tools.
The Runnings team is now over 1,000 strong and still calls Marshall home to its corporate office and flagship store. The company has undergone incredible change over the years, but one thing that will not change is owner Dennis and Adele Reed’s commitment to serving our customers with quality merchandise at great prices and excellence in customer service.
We wish to thank all our customers for supporting us over the past 6 decades. We’re excited about the next 60 years of serving the needs of farmers, homeowners, ranchers and hobbyists throughout the upper Midwest.
