The Runnings story begins on December 5th, 1947, when founder Norman “Red” Running opened the first store in downtown Marshall, Minnesota. Runnings started as an automotive supply store, but quickly expanded its product mix to sell farm and fleet equipment and supplies. The company would continue on a slow path of growth until 1988 when a group involving Dennis and Adele Reed purchased the company. Under Reed’s leadership, Runnings has grown from 8 stores in 2 states to 57 stores in 8 states including Minnesota, South Dakota, Iowa, Connecticut, North Dakota, Montana, New York and New Hampshire.


Over the past 6 decades, Runnings has not only changed in store count, but the selection of products our stores sell. We work very hard to offer a fair price on quality, durable and trusted merchandise including clothing, footwear, automotive, sporting goods, farm supplies, lawn and garden, toys, housewares, tools, pet and animal supplies and more. The Runnings team is now over 2,700 strong and the company continues to call Marshall home to its corporate office and flagship store. The company has undergone incredible change over the years, but one thing that will never be compromised is owner Dennis and Adele Reed’s commitment to serving the needs of our customers.
