Over sixty years ago Norm Coghlan founded Coghlan’s Ltd. with the Camp Stove Toaster, establishing the foundation for what would become the largest single brand of camping accessories in the world.
In 1959, he bought a small service depot in downtown Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, and operated it as a private company. Norm Coghlan also added camping equipment such as tents, sleeping bags, and air mattresses. Many campers would come into the store to get their camp stoves and lanterns serviced, and at the same time, they would buy or rent other camping equipment.
Today, tradition holds. The Camp Stove Toaster is still in the product line - but now alongside over 500 accessories that make being in the outdoors more enjoyable. Coghlan’s provides superior product and packaging, outstanding customer service, and maintains community relationships to make them the first choice in outdoor accessories.
