Fort Western Celebrates 40 Years by Giving Away $4,000

Fort Western is turning 40 and to celebrate we're giving away $4,000! Each month this year, from March through December, we'll be giving away a $400 Fort Gift Card. Visit our website today for full details on how you can enter to win the Fort Western 40th Anniversary Giveaway.

Carl and Shirley Wohlfarth established Fort Western in 1972. The first store opened as a one-room tack shop in Lincoln, NE. As their business and the store's popularity grew the Wohlfarths began expanding their inventory to include western wear. In 1987, Fort Western relocated to its current, two-story, Lincoln store location which occupies over 40,000 square feet.

Today, Fort Western is recognized as one of the largest western wear outfitters in the Midwest with two retail store locations, a catalog and a Web store. Customers can find all their western lifestyle needs through The Fort's expansive selection of western wear, western home decor, cowboy boots, cowboy hats, saddles, and tack.

Fort Western Outfitters Store in Lincoln, NE.

Since we opened our doors in 1972 a few things have changed: we're a little bigger, offer a few thousand more items, and today our customers have a choice in how to visit us. You can come to the store in Lincoln or Nebraska City and find the selection and customer service you have come to expect, or visit from the comfort of your home or office and browse over 4,500 items. Either way you shop we invite you to visit Nebraska's largest western outfitter. Help us celebrate 40 years and discover the tradition that is The Fort.
