More About Us

The House of Sports is a family-owned and operated business that began with my father Jack starting North Iowa Tire Company in 1965. This business started with a $2,000 bank loan. Jack worked very hard and prospered in the tire business, but soon found the tire business to be a struggle in the winter months. Jack has always enjoyed anything that had to do with an engine, so he started to fool around selling snowmobiles in 1966.

In the fall of 1969, Jack made the purchase of a snow blower and bought 3 Ariens, one for himself and 2 for his neighbors. In Spring, the Ariens representative came to the shop and told Jack that he needed to buy lawnmowers as well if he was going to be and Ariens dealer. Jack had no intention of being a lawnmower dealer, but he bought some Ariens soon after. As a result, the snowmobiles, the snow blowers and mowers were selling. As the business expanded, Jack was in need of more room and rented the building next door as the tire customers started complaining about the noise from the snowmobiles and other equipment while their tires were being changed.

Like many "mom and pop" shops, Jack's wife Elizabeth has been the secretary and bookkeeper since the beginning. Jack's son, John, joined the business in 1975. Since then we have taken on the John Deere consumer products line along with Grasshopper lawn equipment, the full line of Bombardier products (ATV, snowmobile & watercraft) and Ariens Consumer Products. In the meantime we have built two additions. A vacant lot west of the current site for buildings has also been purchased for possible expansion in the future.
