READY FOR THE HUNT SINCE 1931

Fort Thompson’s roots go all the way back to 1931 when C.B. Thompson Jr.’s father, Clyde (C.B.) Thompson, opened a grocery and hardware store in North Little Rock. In this very grocery store, C.B. Thompson sold guns and ammunition out of his back storeroom. 

Clyde Thompson's Grocery store circa 1948, on Broadway, in Rose City/North Little Rock.

Eventually, C.B. Thompson Jr. took over, and the store evolved into Thompson’s Super Market. The sporting goods side of the business split off in 1985, and a new log building was built across the street from the grocery store. The new business became Fort Thompson Sporting Goods, with the name paying homage to C.B. Thompson and the building’s fort-like appearance.
