On Point Ace Hardware & Sporting Goods
KSAL Staff - May 27, 2016 11:57 am
Gibson’s Ace Hardware in Salina opened for business on North Santa Fe in 1961. A brand new building was built and the store moved to its current location at 321 S. Broadway in 1968. Since the beginning, we have specialized in offering an unusual and large section of goods ranging from hardware & paint, lawn & garden, and one of our strongest categories, hunting, fishing & camping gear.
We have always strived to offer a tailored selection of hunting and fishing gear to match what is needed for the local area. The big box stores just can’t offer a different selection of gear from location to location, so what you get are the bare essentials in their stores. The Sporting Goods department is run by local favorite Al Gebhart, who lives and breathes fishing and hunting; just about everybody in the area knows good ol’ Al. Customers constantly ask for him by name as he always seems to have up to date fishing and hunting reports and what fisherman are catching fish on, and where hunters are scoring game.
We are excited for the opportunity to connect with more sportsman in the area by appearing on KSAL’s On-Point show! Al Gebhart will be talking about the latest gear, and offer tips for successful trips in the great outdoors. Be sure to check out our Facebook page “Ace Sporting Goods Salina KS” for giveaways, and videos of Al Gebhart in action!
