River’s Edge Products was founded in 1998 in the small town of St. Clair, Missouri and quickly rose to be one of the most dominant brands in the outdoor gift market. Specializing in fishing, hunting, western, and licensed gift products, River’s Edge Products strived to provide our customers with home decor and gifts that displayed their love of the great outdoors.
The success in the Home Decor and Gift market and the growing demand for our products, quickly resulted in the need of more space. In September of 2013, we broke ground to construct a new 123,500-square-foot facility. With over 6,500 customers, the new facility provided us the necessary space to meet the needs of our growing customer base.
“This expansion represents an exciting new phase in the growth and success of River’s Edge,” said Pat Wrob, past president of River’s Edge. “We take great pride in the unique products and high-quality service that River’s Edge provides and we’re glad the City of St. Clair and the State of Missouri provide an environment accommodating to business growth.”
In July of 2014, River’s Edge Products was acquired by Maurice Sporting Goods. Maurice Sporting Goods, Inc. was a family owned wholesaler of sporting goods products in the fishing, hunting, outdoor recreation, marine, fitness/athletics, sports licensing and outdoor gift categories, serving mass retailers and independent dealers throughout the United States, Canada, and other international markets.This acquisition provided River’s Edge Products the opportunity to expand our product market while still being able to operate within the same location, along with the same leadership and team.
After almost 20 years of success within the Gift and Decor market, in 2016 we were offered the unique opportunity to partner with Guy Harvey, one of the world’s finest marine wildlife artists. Harvey’s dynamic designs and original paintings accurately depict his love of nature and wildlife. As part of this partnership, a portion of each Guy Harvey merchandise purchase from River’s Edge Products goes directly to the Guy harvey Ocean Foundation, which will fund scientific research and marine conservation educational programs.
In 2018, we lost our founder and long-standing President, Patrick “RPW” Wrob. Throughout the years Pat remained an integral part of River’s Edge Products working as a leader and team member as well as taking part in product development and planning. Pat created a legacy within River’s Edge Products that we still strive to uphold.
