The owners of Hergert’s Sport Center in Oshkosh, WI, Bob and Ralph Hergert, are retiring after over 60 years, according to a report from a local news station.

The Hergert family told Local Five News that they had sold the Hergert Sport Center to a Minnesota-based company, and the last day under their ownership will be March 1.

The Hergert’s said they sold the building to the Minnesota-based company because they planned to keep the store as an outdoor sports store, albeit with changing inventory.

“Continue on like we are running it and take care of the customer instead of tearing it down and building condos or a park,” said Ralph Hergert. “We have three generations of customers that are used to coming here, and there’s nothing left that is like it.”
