About Husker Hounds
Husker Hounds was started in the spring of 1995 by myself, Scott Strunc. I've always been a die-hard Big Red fan. Ever since my mother started taking me to games when I was 5 years old, I dreamed of making a living by doing something that I loved-Big Red Football!
My girlfriend at the time and now my beautiful wife, Janine Strunc, started telling me, "Quit talking about opening up a Husker Store and just do it. Either do it or shut up about it!" Janine not only helped me believe that we could do it, she also spent countless hours helping me make my dream come true. With the help of my soul mate for life, we started on our journey as entrepreneurs. I started selling husker memorabilia out of the back of a minivan. We would go to county fairs and different locations around the Omaha area to sell Husker Memorabilia. It didn’t take long for me to fall in love with what I was doing! Memorabilia oozing out of the walls! This state of the art storefront has its own "Tunnel Walk" coming in from outside with a red tile flooring leading your way into its walls. We have built our Husker Nation storefront from the ground level up and now am proud to announce that we have the absolute best selection of Husker Memorabilia anywhere in this great state of Nebraska! We now carry over 5,400 items in the Big Red from t-shirts and sweatshirts to sweaters and dog bones for your pet! We have from Husker Toilet seats to sexy nighties for your special Husker lady! Also, we have a wonderful website to help feed our fellow Huskers who live out of state and can’t make it to us.
We have the ability to come to you with www.huskerhounds.com.

As we go into a new era of Nebraska Football, it is time to refocus our business and rededicate ourselves to YOU! You're the reason Husker Hounds even exists. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for your loyalty to the Huskers and your unwavering support of the Big Red.
Husker Hounds opened its first standing store on March 1, 1996 in a small 1,100 square foot store on 84th and Frederick Street in Omaha. We quickly outgrew that space and moved to a 2,400-square foot store on 84th and Center Street. We opened up a 4,000-square foot second location on 171st and West Center Road in May of 2009. In May of 2003, Husker Hounds moved its original store on 84th and Center 2 blocks south on 84th to its permanent spot, 3003 So. 84th Street. This location is now the cornerstone of Husker Hounds. We have a building that has almost 8,000 square feet! We have over 5,000 square feet of Husker Merchandise. In August of 2016, we opened up our 3rd store location in the OMAHA area. It is located at 14937 Evans Plaza in Northwest Omaha! 3 stores but only one mission- Serve the BEST FANS in college football with an unbelievable selection and unmatched customer service!
Go Big Red Forever!
