Ramakko’s Source for Adventure is Here to Help You Enjoy the Great Outdoors!

Are you the adventurous type? Do you love to explore the outdoors? Are you a hiker, hunter, fisher or camper? Then you absolutely need to make regular visits to Ramakko’s.

Just a quick drive to the South End, located at 2345 Regent, Ramakko’s Source for Adventure has been serving Sudbury and the surrounding area with specialist gear, next-level customer service and local experts to help make your adventures truly special.

Brian Ramakko and his family have been in business for 33 years, starting with 1000 square feet and $12,000 as a bait and tackle shop, all the way to a 20,000-sq. ft., multi-department and multi-sport hub that hosts a staff of 46 outdoor enthusiasts and customer service specialists! Ramakko’s has seen six expansions and location changes, and experienced massive growth right along with Sudbury’s needs and wants.

What started out as an idea for a small business and a nudge from family, Brian opened his first store after graduating university. Originally a fishing needs retailer; selling rods, and reels, bait and lures, Brian realized that fishing is seasonal, and with every new season comes new ways to enjoy the outdoors. From there, he envisioned bringing a more technical and specialist brand of knowledge to the local consumer. The staff at Ramakko’s take this approach to each of their departments.

Brian then expanded to include hunting, fishing, camping, paddling and apparel as well as footwear. Ramakko’s now offers an even wider selection of the top brands for all of your adventuring needs, or, as Brian would say, “We morph to maintain relevance. We keep growing and building, and changing with the community”.

When you come to Ramakko’s you are met with a passionate bunch who have bought into the company a vision of enhancing one’s experience outdoors! No matter what department you find yourself, you will be helped by someone who knows what works and what makes it an ideal fit for northeastern Ontario.

Ramakko’s has the largest selection in Sudbury of premium brands such as Arc’teryx, Icebreaker and Prana to get you clothed for any season, to canoes and kayaks from Scott and Wilderness Systems, and SUPs from Bluwave. You can also find firearms from Benelli and Browning (among others), bows from PSE or Ten Point Crossbows and the optics from Leupold and Vortex as well as accessories to make it your own. Camping gear and tents from MSR, and packs from Osprey and The North Face will help you carry everything you need for your trips or expeditions, while fishing rods and reels are offered from brands including Shimano, G. Loomis, and St Croix! These are just a few of the top of the line products that Ramakko’s works with.

So, if you’re an avid adventurer or a weekend warrior, Ramakko’s Source for Adventure has the right equipment and apparel to ensure you will have the best outdoor experience possible!
