MEET THE BIRD

The Black Bird, The Camping Bird and the Services Bird.

The Black Bird Store in Medford, OR, was founded as an army surplus store in 1965 by Lee Hobbs. The giant black bird in front of the store was fashioned after a 10-foot magpie at Yard Birds, a store in Centralia, WA, owned by a friend of Lee’s. The Black Bird Shopping Center has become one of the largest family-owned outdoors stores in Medford, OR.

Upcoming Events

I’ve lived in this area for 40 some years now. Black Bird has always been a reliable and fair-priced place to find nearly everything we need for life in the mountains. Including the best pair of racing ski boots ever! The staff is really great too!!

Years ago Black Bird was a great store with friendly staff members and relatively competitive prices with a good selection - today the store is COMPLETELY different mainly regarding the staff members. Literally every time I come into the store there is a short older man following me around continually asking me "you need help with something?" and basically just trying to make sure I'm not committing theft. The ironic thing about it is he looks like a meth user and a thief himself (I am a software engineer and don't usually get profiled by anti-theft associates). They also have the majority of their stuff locked up like walmart and you have to try to find someone to unlock things - I get you have probably been a victim of theft but SO HAS EVERY OTHER STORE in this town and they don't act the way you do because of it. I read some of the other negative reviews and people have said similar things regarding terrible experiences with rude staff members and the individual representing Black Bird who responds to reviews on google is childish and basically responds with rude comments as well - eventually people will get tired of your store and you will be forced to shut your doors permanently, which wouldn't be such a bad thing at this point.

Always very helpful. I'm always able to get what I need to get the job done right the first time

Can’t wait!! So excited to have Black Bird in Phoenix!!

Welcome to Phoenix you have my business. Hoping you bring the big blackbird out front , it’s an important part of you guys. I know you have the inside bird coming but I have always loved your big outside bird. As a kid it was always my favorite thing to pull up too and ogle at.

Yes!!! Welcome to Phoenix…looking forward to the opening! 👍

I rather have old timer store and love it

I’m very excited about the taproom. What kind of food and drinks are planned?

Great opportunity to drop the location's map link somewhere in a comment field. 🤔

I shop for Nordic ski gear at your Medford store. Hoping you’ll have the same offerings in Phoenix?
