Default Tulsa Army surplus stores

I visited three Army Surplus stores in Tulsa area today.

Actually 2. One is now closed and what looks like a church has moved in. That one was at 903 S Memorial.

Another at Oklahoma Army Surplus 3942 S Memorial. This one was a pretty good sized store. A wide variety of stuff. Some not Army Surplus. Some camping and fishing gear. They had selection of just about everything you'd expect in and Army Surplus store.

My wife started talking about buying a Navy Uniform to bury me in. She's not allowed in Army/Navy Surplus stores again.

The prices seemed high to me. The prices of their Carhart jackets and coveralls definitely were high. Probably 30% higher than Tractor supply or Atwoods.

MRE entrees were 7 to 10 dollars.

They sell a brand of storage food in #10 cans.


Family Surplus & Thrift Store
1113 East Kenosha Street


Kind of half thrift store, half army surplus and not very big. Huge selection of socks.
Prices were OK. If you are looking for Boy Scout uniforms or books or supplies go here.
I bought a couple of small Boy Scout fire steels. My wife bought a sweater.
Nice people.

Heck, you may have bumped into my brother. I got a call around 11:45 this morning just before I teed off. My brother was asking if I knew of any other Army Surplus stores in Tulsa.

Was he the big guy with the beard?

Oklahoma Army Surplus was pretty busy.

There's also Sooner Surplus at 3190 W 21st St. It is supposed to have good prices and selection according to internet reviews.

I haven't been there yet.

Sooner Surplus is not an Army/Navy Surplus store. It is a store that sells stuff salvaged from Semi Truck Wrecks that the vendor was paid off by insurance and Sooner Salvages whatever they can and sells it for what they think you will pay.

I'm not putting them down. We have bought things from them before. I just don't want you to think that it's an Army/Navy Type Surplus store.

I have heard about another Army/Navy Surplus store in Tulsa. I have not been there before, but I trust the source that told me about it. It is located between 11th and 15th in the Gun Boat Park area which is just south of the downtown Tulsa Home Depot.

There are actually 2 stores there that you might be interedted in. The first one is a Coleman Camping Overstock Outlet. They have lots of camping equipment. I have been in there and it was worth checking out. The second one is the Army/Navy Surplus store and is supposed to be located a couple doors from the Coleman Store. A guy named Trent runs it and he used to work at the 39th & S. Memorial Army Surplus Store. I've known him for several years and he seems to be a great guy. I'm glad he finally got his own place and I do need to go see him.

Was a surplus store East of Memorial on 46st St. in the industrial district. They carried alice gear, canteens, clothing and related surplus items. Prices were really great there.

I haven't been there in a year or so, so not sure if they are still in business.

Hope this helps.

Yep, that the one. I went in there the other day. I know the guy behind the counter from several years of buying surplus in the Tulsa Area, so it was good to "find Him" again.

Daniel owns the store. Trent is an employee who runs the cash register and his mouth. The man is a freaking IDIOT! Great store though.

He has a beard, but he is not very big.

This is on the Northwest corner of 11th and Frankfort.

I was in this one this morning and thought I'd pass along the information that they will be closing the doors permanently on August 15th (8/15/15). They still have some good stuff (web gear, clothing, helmets, boots) and quite a bit of WWll, Korean, Vietnam era collectables. Right now everything is 30% off. I told the guy that works there I'd pass that info along, just might be worth a look.
I hate to see em close, they always seemed to have more actual surplus than most these days.

"Now days" seems there is a real shortage of "Good" mil surplus stores. Most inventory is not even DOD surplus but Chinese knock off to fleece the non vet. And vastly overpriced give the price Uncle Sam sells it for (or that it costs for the PLA/Chicoms to make it).. Makes you wonder where all the actual DOD surplus goes to, I think the wes merchants. There certainly is no shortage of merchandise as Obmuer closes down DOD.


Buy job lots yourself at www.govliquidation.com. Note that most of their auctions are no longer DOD surplus as they lost the wheeled vehicle contract.
