The Store was founded by Lee Hobbs in 1965,
basically as an Army Surplus store. He was going
to name it "Trade Mart" but had some retail friends
up in Centralia, Washington who owned a store
called "Yard Birds" in which they had 10 ft. Magpie
cartoon-like figures around the store. This gave Lee
the idea of "Black Bird" with a 29ft. Black Bird over-
looking the parking lot, which Lee designed and
Constructed of re-bar, hog wire and fiberglass, along
with a lot of imagination!
The Bird can be seen sporting a tank top and shorts
for Medford's Pear Blossum Run, a St. Patrick's Day
outfit and even a Santa hat & candy cane at Christmas.
It may be one of the most photographed landmarks
of Medford and is probably in more scrapbooks than
all the WalMart signs in the world.
Black Bird has focused on being "A Men's Toy Store"
but women love it too! With Hunting, Fishing and Camping Gear being it's
strong points. This is not to say women do not shop
here too, because they do! In addition to the Largest
Family owned Sporting Goods Department in Southern Oregon, we
also have Clothing, Shoes, Automotive and Hardware
Departments. Our Clothing department has been noted
for having one of the best selections of Carrhart,Levi and
Wranger products around.
Plus, a seasonal Ski Shop and Rafting Shop.
