Frank's Great Outdoors was founded in 1945 by Frank and Margaret Gorske. Frank's Great Outdoors was originally named "Frank's Bait and Tackle" and was a small bait shop selling live bait and a small amount of tackle until its expansion in 1973. Today Frank's still sells live bait, the reason it opens so early in the morning, including before 6 a.m. on Saturday. The sprawling store also can carries kayaks, canoes and features an extensive camping department as well as hiking and backpacking equipment.

Store Hours:
Monday-Thursday: 6 a.m. - 8 p.m.
Friday: 6 a.m. - 9 p.m.
Saturday: 5:30 a.m. - 7 p.m.
