About C-A-L Ranch Stores
C-A-L Ranch Stores was founded in 1959 in Idaho Falls ID, by Clinton Murphy, Allen Murphy and L. Wayne Murphy, thus the initials “C-A-L” in its brand. In more than 50 years of successful retail business, C-A-L Ranch Stores has grown from a single store operator to a regional retailer with twenty stores in Idaho, Utah, Nevada and Arizona and a Distribution Center located in Payson, Utah. The company opened its online store www.calranch.com in December 2012, recently opened a store in Las Vegas Nevada in February 2013 and will open its twenty-first store in Show Low, Arizona in April 2013. The company has opened nine stores since the great recession of 2008 creating hundreds of jobs! While the company is no longer owned by the Murphy’s, the company is still privately held and the current owners still operate the company with the same fundamental mission and value system.

Our first store, located in Idaho Falls, Idaho was called C-A-L Ranch & Farm Supply. The store had less than 3,000 square feet and the primary products sold were tillage tools and hardware. Due to the store’s popularity, the store was relocated to a 6,000 square foot building in its second year of operation. That same year, a second store was opened in Rexburg, Idaho. C-A-L Ranch Stores continued its expansion by acquiring the stores of Farm & City in Blackfoot Pocatello, and Burley, Idaho in 1967 while simultaneously expanding its merchandise assortment to include apparel.
In 1972, C-A-L Ranch relocated the Idaho Falls store again to its present location, which features 34,000 square feet of retail selling space. On June 8, 1998, C-A-L Ranch Stores opened the first Utah store in Logan. The company opened additional stores in Spanish Fork, American Fork, Farr West, Tooele and Cedar City, Utah between 1998 and 2002 and further expanded into the West Jordan, Vernal, Layton and St. George, Utah markets between 2008 and 2012. C-A-L Ranch Stores entered Nevada in 2008 with a store in Elko, Carson City in 2012 and Las Vegas in February 2013. The company relocated its Distribution Center from Idaho Falls, ID to Salt Lake City, Utah in 2010 and then most recently again to Payson UT in February 2013.
