Where in God's green Earth is Safford?
Safford is an unincorporated community in West Central Alabama with a population that couldn’t fill a high school gymnasium. Farms, woodland, catfish ponds and endless countryside comprise the landscape. Turns out this is a good place to be if you are a growing business that continues to need more room.

Safford native Keith Bridges is the visionary behind the Safford brand. In 1999 at the age of 21, he opened his first business, Safford Tire, in an old service station across the street from the store’s current location. Over the years he expanded his inventory to include power tools and eventually hunting and fishing supplies to capitalize on the area’s attraction to sportsmen who visit the area from other parts of the state.
As the customer base grew, so did the footprint of the store, which led to the purchase of the adjacent land where the store currently resides. In 2017, the home and sporting goods side of the business became Safford Trading and the outdoor equipment side became Safford Equipment.
What's up with the bear?
Buzz (the bundle bear) is our official mascot. Buzz spends his time creating new bundles, taking long naps and snacking on South Alabama honey. His claim to fame is slashing prices, which we find much more pleasant than slashing customers.
