Archery was a big part of Martin Stubstad's life growing up. It became an even bigger part of his life in 1977 when he founded Archery Headquarters.
Starting with just $2,500 he had borrowed from a friend and using his parents' basement as his "store front", Marty initially sold only two things: bows and arrows. By 1982, however, his product line and customer base had grown to the point that he needed to expand. His search for a new location led him to the location on N Hwy 63. This new, larger location made it possible to add shooting lanes to growing list of services he was providing to the archery-loving public. It wasn't until 1989, though, that Marty walked away from his teaching career and made a full-time go of it with Archery Headquarters.
