2018 marks the 10th year of DiscStore.com and we are excited to celebrate with our fans and customers. Take a look into our history and check out some old photos from our humble beginnings.
Disc Store was started in a college dorm room in 2008 with the goal of providing the best prices and the best service on Ultimate Frisbee discs. With the overwhelming support we’ve received from our amazing customers, we’ve been able to grow to become one of the largest ultimate and disc golf retailers.
Timeline (2008 - Present):
2008 - UltimateDiscStore.com was launched with a single box of Discraft Ultra-Stars in a college dorm room.
2009 through 2011 - The business moved to a house in Omaha, Nebraska. Word was spreading and sales doubled each year. The house filled up with inventory from floor to ceiling and we hired our first employee, then hit our first 100,000 discs sold.
2012 - The business moved to our first warehouse. We began offering custom printed apparel for teams and leagues around the country. We hired employees 3, 4, and 5 while doubling 2011 sales and hitting 200,000 discs sold.
2013 - We rebranded as DiscStore.com to show that we serve both the ultimate and disc golf community. Our team and sales continued to grow.
2014 - We moved from our 3000 ft² warehouse to our new 11,000 ft² warehouse.
2015 - Disc Store made the Inc 5000 list for fastest growing businesses in the USA.
2016 - 1,000,000 discs sold! Disc Store acquired the 2nd largest online Ultimate retailer, DiscAce.com.
2017 - We launched our monthly disc subscription program, DiscMember.com. We started manufacturing some of our own products such as our GrowTheSport Disc Golf Basket in order to provide high end items at the lowest price possible.
Current - Approaching 2,000,000 discs sold! Our team of 16 is working hard every day to grow ultimate and disc golf by serving both our retail customers and our teams, leagues, and clubs around the country for whom we print custom jerseys and apparel.
