Great Outdoor Store was established in Sioux Falls in 1983 as the area’s only locally owned specialty outdoor store. Over the years GOS has grown in size and product selection, but has stayed true to our original roots offering brands such as Patagonia, The North Face, Arc’teryx, Smartwool and much more. In 2009 GOS moved to Sioux Falls’ original train depot the Rock Island Depot. We are pleased to be a part of the Sioux Falls community and love the opportunity to connect our customers with the outdoors and be active.
We have taken time to choose only the greatest from the outdoor industry. We take pride in the fact that when you shop at Great Outdoor Store you get quality products that will perform the way you expect. Our staff is trained to help you find just the right thing for any pursuit. We stand behind all our products and will go out of our way to insure that you have a pleasant shopping experience and are happy with your purchase. In 2014 and 2015, GOS was named one of the top 100 Outdoor Stores in the US by Outdoor USA Magazine!
Come and experience our unique shop and friendly staff when you are in the area.
Wherever your adventures take you, around the world or around the corner, let us help you get there in comfort and ease.
