I’d like to introduce our take on a classic store here in my hometown of Comanche, Texas. As the new owners of Gore Bros. Agri-Service, I’m proud to say that we have deep roots here. Gore Bros. has been a part of this community since 1948, and we’re bringing in some fresh new products while still preserving the heritage that gives our business its identity.
Back in 1948, Joe Gore was barely out of high school when he and his brother Bill Gore rented an old livery stable and opened a feed mill. When the mill burned down four years later leaving them with a huge debt, they didn’t give up. Instead, Joe went off to work on construction jobs in Lubbock while Bill drove freight from coast to coast. When they’d earned enough money, they came back to Comanche and re-opened the feed store in its previous location.
WHO WE ARE
The five of us who have bought this business are all set to continue that heritage of determination and strong local roots here at Gore Bros. Agri-Service. Our business is still in the family, and we’re excited to have some lifelong friends jump on board. We all grew up together here, went off to college, and have now come back and gone into business together. Now that we’re the owners of Gore Bros., I’d like to introduce the team:
Brian Dudley is our store manager. Trained as a leather craftsman and boot repairman, Brian is the steady hand at our helm. His brother Neil Dudley works in the store whenever he can, but he spends his days and occasionally his weekends working for Pederson’s Natural Farms as Vice President of Sales. When he has any spare time, he travels with his family to PRCA rodeo calf-roping events. Stacy Dudley, Neil’s wife and the granddaughter of Joe Gore, moved her marketing company (The Moxie Room) to the retail store, where she oversees all of Gore Bros. marketing and advertising. Cody Lane is president of Pederson’s Natural Farms. He and his wife Chrissy Lane have an investment in the store’s success!
“I GOT IT AT THE FEED STORE”
Did you know that Gore Bros. Agri-Service offers a rich shopping experience for the whole family?
Our local farmers and ranchers helped build this store and our priority is to help them cultivate their land and grow their ag related businesses. Our focus will always be on providing a large selection of classic feed store products.
Additionally, we carry a huge variety of outdoor products, including wild bird seed and feeders, ropes, chains, gates, pet products, deer feeders and blinds, hunting supplies, lawn and garden products, and much more. It wasn’t even until we bought the store that we realized what a plethora of problem solving products we have within these walls.
Upstairs, we have a stylish assortment of fashion and western clothing for the whole family, from babies and toddlers through teens to men’s and women’s clothes. One of the things we’re most excited about is our new, completely original, hand designed and drawn line of clothing called “Feed Store Fashion With Moxie.” We also have an impressive collection of boots, belts, and now we even carry jewelry!
We love spending time with all our friends and neighbors in Comanche, so we encourage you to keep an eye on our Facebook Page for more events like our fabulous Customer Appreciation Pig Roast! Come in for a visit today and check out our selection of unexpected goodies!
