Bomgaars to Open Store in Mankato

Sioux City – Bomgaars Supply, Inc., a farm and ranch chain based in Sioux City, Iowa, has leased retail space in Mankato, MN. Torrey Wingert, Chief Executive Officer of Bomgaars, confirmed the lease saying, “We look forward to providing our very popular lines of products to serve the people of this community.”

The 117,000 sq. ft. building was previously home to retail chains Gordmans and Gander Mountain. Chad Christensen, Regional Director of Real Estate at The Carrington Company, which owns the building, expressed similar enthusiasm about the partnership. “We were thrilled to learn of Bomgaars interest in coming to Mankato and jumped at the chance to partner with them.  We’ve held their brand in high regards for many years and welcomed the opportunity to do business with a family-owned company of 70 years experience and a stellar reputation.  We’re also excited for the city of Mankato as we worked hand in hand with local leaders to explore all options involving this property.  These folks truly care for the community and I know will be as pleased as we are that Bomgaars is coming to town.”
