Range USA founder Tom Willingham said success at its Merrillville store prompted the opening of a location in Mishawaka.
“Our Merrillville store opened in 2018, which attracted many Mishawaka customers as well,” said Willingham in a press release. “The response to Merrillville has been so positive, it just made sense to open another location in northern Indiana.”
The Mishawaka store, at 655 W. University Drive, is the company’s 41st location and its fifth in Indiana. It will employ between 25 and 30 part- and full-time workers.
The store will feature 15,000-square-feet of space, which includes room for sales, 20 shooting lanes and two classrooms.
“Our mission is for our team to help develop responsible gun owners,” Willingham said. “As part of that mission, we want to set the standard for approachable, clean and safe indoor gun ranges.”
Range USA and the U.S. Concealed Carry Association recently partnered to focus on the importance of firearm safety.
Ohio-based Range USA was founded in 2012. The company plans to open another location in Evansville later this year.
