Best Sporting Goods Store

Bob Ward & Sons


Assistant manager Dean Wollan sums up his store’s philosophy pretty succinctly. “Our customers are our guests,” he says. Customer service is just one of the reasons Indy readers find Bob Ward & Sons to be the best in the sporting goods business. That extends to its spacious gun section, where Wollan says attention to each customer’s needs is paramount. For example, he says, an associate is not going to recommend a $3,000 assault rifle to a gopher hunter. Although, we figure that depends on your gopher problem. (Cue Bill Murray.)
