Sporting goods store celebrates 65 years of service in the Flathead Valley
KALISPELL, Mont. -

Snappy Sport Senter celebrated it's 65th anniversary on Saturday. The iconic building on Highway 2/Montana 35 has been open for business since 1947.

Snappy's started out as a gas station and early convenience store, but evolved over the decades as a one stop shop for fishing, hunting, and camping gear. General Manager Dave Toelke gave away the secret behind Snappy's success over all these years.

"I think it really boils down to people," said Toelke. "Being part of this great community for 65 years and the Flathead Valley, wonderful customer base, and of course our staff."
