Bob Ward’s Named Styrka’s “2018 NBS Dealer of the Year”


Eagan, MN (February 15, 2019) At the Nation’s Best Sports (NBS) Show in Fort Worth, Texas, Styrka Optics recently presented their “2018 NBS Dealer of the Year Award” to Bob Ward’s Outdoors & Sports. Headquartered in Missoula, Montana, Bob Ward’s is a full-service retailer with five stores in Montana and a strong customer base of hunters and recreational shooters.

“We’ve worked with Bob Ward’s for a year-and-a-half now, and they are an extremely professional organization,” said Brad Gross, Styrka’s national sales manager. “They provide their customers with the full line of Styrka binoculars, rifle scopes, spotting scopes and red dots, and the staff at Bob Ward’s really knows their optics. We couldn’t have the success we’re experiencing at Styrka without great dealers like Bob Ward’s!”

Bob Ward’s (www.bobwards.com) was originally launched as a watch-repair shop in 1917. Bob Ward himself was a well-known gunsmith, and a few years after opening his store he also began taking in firearms for repair and customization. From there, the business grew into today’s Bob Ward’s Sports and Outdoors, an icon among Big Sky hunters, anglers and back-country enthusiasts.

Established in 1956, NBS is a buyer’s group that provides independently-owned retailers the ability to effectively compete through aggressive purchasing, marketing and service opportunities. NBS is comprised of 350-plus independent retail members representing over 1,200 store fronts across the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. NBS hosts six different buying market shows each year.
