Best Sporting Goods Minneapolis 2013 - Tradition Creek
Is your idea of "sporting" a $500 pair of running shoes, a racquet and country club, or a caddy and a cart? No. Your sporting involves a canoe and an axe, a water-purification kit, and a pack of matches. And St. Paul's newest addition to the retail stores on West Seventh, Tradition Creek, is your outfitter. Owned by Boy Scout alum, outdoors enthusiast, and Navy veteran Shawn Murphy, recently returned from Afghanistan, this tidy 2,000-square-foot store transports you immediately to the Northwoods, and it carries all the quality national and local lines you love — Columbia, Marmot, Osprey, Minnetonka Moccasins, Red Wing shoes, Duluth Pack bags, and Bemidji Woolen Mills, plus some essential military surplus gear. With plans to soon offer cold-weather survival training and other classes out of a space in the back of the shop, this is your kind of sporting goods store.
