If you’ve ever driven north of Ogden along I-15, you’ve certainly seen Smith and Edwards. It’s an absolutely huge store with an even bigger yard around it, and it’s an adventure waiting for you to explore.

Smith and Edwards is a family-owned business that got its start in 1947 when Bert Smith and Lawrence Edwards started selling military surplus out of Bert’s backyard. Take a look at this video posted on YouTube by Smith and Edwards – it gives you a tour of the store.
