Big Rock Sports is a premier fishing, hunting and taxidermy sporting goods distributor with six distribution facilities located throughout the U.S. and Canada. Having been in the business for over 60 years, the company services more than 15,000 outdoor retailers globally.

“The opening of our Western distribution center to Reno was a strategic decision to meet our growing customer needs,” said Big Rock Sports Chief People Officer Jay Samuels.

“As Big Rock Sports continues to grow, we must ensure that we are providing our customers with the most convenient and enjoyable experience in the industry. Opening a new distribution facility in Reno, Nevada is one of the many ways we are ensuring we meet our customer’s expectations,” he added.

Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve said, “A premier outdoor sporting goods distributor like Big Rock Sports opening a new distribution facility in Reno is further proof that we’ve officially become an attractive logistics hub in the West. This also adds to our already great reputation for outdoors and recreation.”

“Big Rock Sports is a great fit for our region and is a place where outdoor sports are year-round activities,” said Mike Kazmierski, President & CEO of EDAWN. “The new Reno location is ideal for the company’s growing business and is within easy reach to more than 60 million customers in a single-day truck drive in the Western U.S.”
