That’s our founder. The man who started it all when he opened up a small, 800 square foot “Army & Navy” store back in 1951 in Rome, NY. “Herb” was quite the showman and considered himself a champion for the common consumer. We now call him the “Price Fighter,” to honor that legacy. A tradition that means keeping more money in your wallet and spending less on the gear you need.
