About Us

CC Military Surplus emerged from CC Manufacturing, based in Central City, Iowa. CC Manufacturing is a military manufacturing facility offering metal stamping and powder-coating products for U.S. and allied countries worldwide. When our President took over the business in 1987, he provided military supplies to our armed forces efforts. These items include aluminum military tent stakes, Alice pack frames for rucksacks, heavy-duty vehicle jack stands, and conveyor bed systems for C-130 military transport planes.

In 2002, our Vice President, saw the opportunity to expand the wholesale business end to a retail business venture, creating a diverse line of products in addition to surplus items and paintball/airsoft gear. Opening a tiny store in Maplewood, MN, the operation quickly exploded. Expansion after expansion over a short period of time eventually led CC Military Surplus to taking over the entire building located on the corner of White Bear Avenue and County Road C.

Other stores soon opened. Locations in Coralville and Central City, Iowa started carrying larger and larger amounts of paintball, airsoft, hunting, camping, clothing and surplus items as well. Even with the extreme success of the Maplewood store, CC Military Surplus needed to expand to help serve the Minnesota population. Thus we have opened a store in Rochester, MN. 

CC Military Surplus is continually growing, including adding an online web store in 2012 and is always on the look out for more items to offer. With the ever-increasing line of products available, check back often to see what we’ll offer soon. If you need something we don’t carry, let one of our friendly staff know and we’ll do what we can to bring it in to our stores for you.

Our Mission Statement:
Our mission is to provide our customers with the best shopping experience possible, assisting you with the most experienced sales staff we can offer.

We will NOT inflate our prices, simply to put them “on sale,” so that you can perceive that you’re getting “a deal.” We would rather you get a FAIR price every time you come into our stores. In essence: every day that we’re open, we’re having a sale.

We thank you for your valued patronage and will do everything in our power so you completely enjoy your shopping experience with us.
