POSTED: December 13, 2012 7:16 p.m.

Sportsman’s Supply existed in what is now a part of the Convenience Store at 702 North Laurel Street in Springfield. At the time this was a small strip mall with four businesses. The convenience store was then called Jet Food Store and the Sportsman’s Supply occupied the next business spot to its north in the strip. Tebeau Propane and Page’s Printing were other merchants there.
