From the newsletter:

Hi everybody! We've missed you all during this transitional time for our business, and wanted to reach out with the latest update on our progress with the new stores and our Company.

We’ve been incredibly busy with construction, interior design and the many exciting plans we have for our new Champaign Outdoors and Rugged Outdoors retail locations. We know many of you are getting anxious to see the new stores completed — we are, too! We are getting close to locking down our reopening date, so keep your eyes out for a date announcement coming soon.

Rugged Outdoors Store- Opening July 2018
Champaign Outdoors Store- Opening August 2018

We’ve had many requests to shop with us while we are closed. If you are in need of some outdoor gear and still want to shop e-local, we are always open at and on the Amazon marketplace currently under our Champaign Surplus seller. Our Internet team is happy to help, and we'll ship the items directly to your front door!

Thank you all for being so patient with us through the inevitable delays that come with building two entirely new stores. We're so lucky to have the best customers in Central Illinois!

We're all moved into our new headquarters!

The Champaign Surplus, Inc. corporate headquarters and the Rugged Outdoors internet warehouse are officially settled into their new home on Mercury Drive. We couldn't be more excited about our new bigger warehouse, new offices, and new staff members joining our team!
