The History of Mel’s Sport Shop - Spicer, MN 

  1. Greg Melges opened Mel’s Sport Shop - a small bait shop across the street from Mel’s Curb Service drive-in restaurant, owned by his parents since 1946. The Melges family expanded the retail business from a live bait shop to a firearms dealer, outdoor sports store, convenience store, and gas station and began selling a wider selection of sporting goods and fishing equipment. 
  2. After 62 years in the business, Greg was ready to sell the store, retire and begin experiencing the outdoors himself. He eventually found Steven Wytaske to take on the challenge of continuing to grow and expand the established business. 

Before Steven walked in the door, he had no shortage of plans for the future of Mel’s Sport Shop – his first move? Adding a fully stocked liquor store to the joint. Now Mel’s is truly a One-Stop-Shop!
