Joe's Sports and Surplus, originally opened as Joe's Variety in 1956 by owner Joe Stortz Sr. In the 1970's Joe Stortz Jr. and his wife Ginette grew the store into Joe's Sports and Surplus where it has been a mainstay on Queen Street for over three decades. In 2009 Joe sold the business to Dave and Jennifer Edgar. Dave a returning Sault resident had shopped in the store growing up and realized the store's value as Sault Ste. Marie keystone business. For the first year of the new operation Joe mentored the new owners passing on his business savvy and knowledge.

Dave's vision is to continue to grow the store into a true Outfitter striving to provide quality products at very competitive prices. "We want to build on our reputation of providing outstanding customer service and product knowledge."
